Crrr...happy holidays!

My favorite tree, Noel.

So, I had this idea that for Christmas I would hit the Trans-Canada Highway in search of fame, fortune, and glory.

As I drove toward Brandon (about two hours ago), I discovered that this is what they mean when they say, "Some slippery patches with reduced visibility:"

The Road Warrior, Canadian edition.

Translation: "You can't see squat, you can skate the entire way to Vancouver, stay home."

I need a drink.

  1. A drink sounds like a fantastic idea.

    And man, those roads look bad. I wouldn't want to be travelling on them right now.

  3. No, not Brandon!! You could always call in the army, perhaps?

  4. I hear ya on the driving conditions. I've been driving out to Saskatchewan every year for the holidays since '95. That blizzard photo looks mighty familiar. Drive safe!

  5. Good idea! Plus I'm pretty sure bin Laden is hiding in Brandon as well.
