I arrived in Medicine Hat on June 26th and settled into a very pretty campground just outside the limits of the City of Medicine Hat. The campground is located on a golf course and the view through my windshield is of the 18th tee. There are several avid golfers out on the course by 7 a.m., which is usually the time I take a walk, so I have enjoyed seeing some good shots and heard “fore“ several times. Our family arrived in Medicine Hat on July 1st of 1977, the population then was about 36000. The land approaching Medicine Hat is very flat in all directions but the city itself is built in and around a cluster of hills known as “coulees.” Which is apparently a French word. The campground/golf course is located in one of ... read more

Well back safe and sound in Canada now and the road trip has unfortunately come to an end. We went skiing in Banff at the end of it which was awesome and luckily no broken bones. The pictures show just how gorgeous it is. Nick and I are now spending a week back in Medicine Hat before leaving back for the UK on Saturday. It really has been a wicked experience seeing all these places and doing so much. Just seems like years ago that we were first in Las Vegas. While on our trip, the 4 of us decided to dabble in a bit of retail therapy (as is only right in America)! We decided to have an add up of what we had bough between the 4 of us and goes something like this: ... read more

Got to be up in a few hours as probably setting off about 0500 to get down to the American border and passing through Montana, Idaho and Utah to get as near to the Grand Canyon as we can. Gonna be a long day!!... read more

Today the funniest thing happened to us. Leanne and I woke up to someone saying, "Excuse me, there will be a herd of cattle coming through here in a few minutes, You might want to move your tent!" Well, we have never packed up so quickly! Yikes, It was like running from a very slow moving avalanche! We got out just in the nick of time. Now we are drying off inside a visitor's centre where it is dry cause we have been stuck in the rain for all of Alberta.... I guess I should recap up to this point. We are now in Alberta! After 6 grueling mountain passes and many other climbs, our legs are glad to say farewell to BC. We did enjoy many of the quaint mining towns and really friendly folks ... read more
