Pit Stop!

Wednesday, May 20, 2009
Well, I'm slightly under halfway - maybe more like 35% of the way- there.

Driving roughly 400 km across the Alberta prairie I spotted:

4 deer
2 antelope
900 cows
a hawk
a few scary looking prairie chickens, clearly the descendants of tiny velociraptors
one renegade, unfenced black heifer
1 ghostly town
1 wooden one-lane bridge
0 bathrooms

Only 6.5 hours to go! This time, with company! And I'm reconsidering my decision to buy a car with no cruise control!
