Well, I'm slightly under halfway - maybe more like 35% of the way- there.
Driving roughly 400 km across the Alberta prairie I spotted:
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
Only 6.5 hours to go! This time, with company! And I'm reconsidering my decision to buy a car with no cruise control!
