My mouth may be big


...but it's not that big.


Mind you, I did talk up a storm as we headed east down Highway 3. The windmills were spinning like mad.


The weary car grew a weary beard.


The owl didn't seem too interested in what I had to say.


The antelope, less so.

That's a great shot of the antelope, Brenda. I can just about feel them moving.

Ah, they don't make cars like the the old Dirtmaster 200C anymore. I hear that baby can go from zero to clinging-filth in one province flat. Or one flat province, as the case may be.

Thanks, Pete! They were among a herd of 34. It was a spectacular sight.

Har har, G.

I wish I had horns...would come in handy when I ran at people with my head down.

I spent all evening trying to remember what they called the drink they used to serve at the Hudson's Bay Store. I finally got it. Malt. Why? Because the car looks as if it is covered in malt.

my car looked exactly like that coming through kerrobert, sk, in 2002. it was a tsunami of mud. i believe that road is still under construction.

Ariel, I can picture you with horns.

Malt? I've never had malt, but come to think of it, it does look like the inside of a Malted Milk bar.

Kimmy, luckily we didn't encounter a tsunami of mud. Just slush and ice. We stayed in Medicine Hat (that's in Alberta for those of you not familiar with the area) overnight because of bad weather - that's one busy little city! - then headed to Oyen. The ice build-up happened from the "Watch for Rattlesnakes" sign onward. Everyone at the Coop convenience in Oyen was kicking ice off their vehicles. Some were much better kickers than others.

By the way, I failed to take photos of two of the best road signs of the trip:

"Watch for Rattlesnakes" (Alberta)

"Eggs 1.95 Honk" (BC)
