Not too many RVing firsts at this point in our 23 years of RVing, but we had one. We were going to stop at a Flying J in Redcliff for badly needed gas but Rhonda misdirected us. The station was a diesel fuel only truck stop. We carried on to the next town only to discover that there were no gas stations !! In oil rich Alberta!! You've got to be kidding! As we were almost on empty, the nearest station was back in Redcliff; we wouldn't make it to the next town. We had no choice but to return 33 km to Redcliff. There was a Co-Op gas station on the other side of the hwy that we had not seen. We pumped 252.3 litres. Duh.... A first: reversing our course for gas.

We motored 449 km, unfortunately, not all in a westerly direction. It was another windy drive in the afternoon. The slideout was solidly secured. Wild rose country....I guess they couldn't say wild wind country.
