We're off to La Ronge

...today. Tonight I'll be reading along with a number of others. It will be fun. See the sidebar for details. I copied and pasted the info from the SWG ebriefs, so some of you will recognize the wording. La Ronge is in the center of northern Saskatchewan, but nowhere near here. Creighton, also a northern community, is on the very eastern edge of the province. That means we have to head down the Hanson Lake road and then take the shortcut across to the highway to La Ronge. Of the two routes there, it's by far the shortest and the most beautiful, but it means we're in for 95 km of gravel. No big deal except that we've had a lot of precipitation over the last few days. Hopefully our little car doesn't get swallowed up by some big muddy hole. Wish us luck!

Before we go, we plan to get another coat of paint on the walls in the studio. I missed a few spots yesterday, proving I can't talk and paint at the same time.

Have a good trip! Hopefully you (and your dinged fingernails) will get there in one B-shaped piece!

So what you're saying then is that you're an Easterner at heart....right?

But... but... how's the cactus?

As I'm just reading this Saturday evening, I'm sure you're already there, and reading. I have no doubt you'll have a blast with the Ricers, who will take exceptional care of you, and the others you are reading with :-)

Or maybe that she's a...nor'easter?

I remember that road. Hope you made it in one piece!

Thanks, A. Twas great!

Ya, G. Exactly. When the west separates I'd gladly be the easterner of the west.

Don't ask, Rhett. You don't wanna know...

Anita, the Ricers are awesome! It was so fun!

Thanks Tracy. I was thinking about your squishy shoes when we got to the end of the trail.
