"We're back!"


There was no sleeping in this day. We were thinking 5:00 but Hunter thought otherwise.... 1:00, then 4:00 and there was no getting back to sleep...groan. We left the campground at 8:40 and drove 12 km to  Brandon, the second largest city in Manitoba with a population of 46,000, where we had an app't at Freightliner for our 150,000 km servicing. We were here ten years ago for two servicings, going and returning on that trip.
It took about two hours to do approximately half of the checklist in the servicing; the rest would have to wait until we got home. Nothing critical and there were no nasty surprises with what was inspected.
We were on our way at 11:30, stopped for gas @ $ .93.9 and parked at Walmart to have lunch and buy a few groceries.

It was  mainly sunny and 1:00 when we  left Brandon and continued east on hwy 1, the Trans-Canada. The gas tank was full but not mine. We stopped for the day at 2:45 at Miller's Camping Resort, 10 km east of Portage La Prairie  after motoring only 151 km.
I tried the heated pool but didn't find it very heated; waist deep was far enough. These Manitobans are hardy. I guess I'm just a hot tub babe. It became overcast and rained for about an hour. We remained under a severe thunderstorm warning.
