If you plan it they will come... day one.

Friday September 27th.

The day started out a little chilly with the Calgary weather forecast calling for snow!!!!

Fluids topped off, luggage, tools and parts all packed. Ready to go!!
The roads were familiar as we have done this route a number of times in the past. It was raining on and off for the whole drive to Moose Jaw.

Alberta prairie views

Welcome to Saskatchewan
We made a detour to Gravelbourg SK. This prairie town is renowned for its brick  homes, the Our Lady of Assumption Cathedral and its Francophone heritage.
It was really cold so we didn't go for the self guided walking tour. We will get back there soon! 
Typical prairie highways.

The Bishops House, Gravelbourg SK

Cathedral of Our Lady of Assumption, Gravelbourg SK

We have travelling companions on this trip. Sharon's sister and brother-in-law, Phyllis and Andrew are joining us in thier 23ft C-class motorhome. We met up with them in Moose Jaw where we spent the night in their RV! 

Mac the Moose!! Notice anything????
Day two will be our longest... just over 1,000km / 660 miles!!! Thanks for joining us on this trip. Would love to hear from you... be sure to leave a comment below. Update: as you can see, Mac the Moose is missing his antlers and here's why.

    1. You win! Apparently there's a town in Norway that had a moose with bigger antlers and that just wasn't acceptable to the fine folk of Moose Jaw.
