Today was awesome. I will share the awesome parts tomorrow when I’ll be able to upload pics. 🙂
Last night in the tent would have been okay if I didn’t have the noisy neighbours from hell. Every time I managed to dose off I’d be awaken by their loud voices, and, once, by their car alarm!
It was a surprisingly cold night, but I was dressed for it and have a good sleeping bag. It was time, however, to concede that I have passed the age for sleeping on the ground. 🙂 Since I plan to camp during my Inuvik adventure, I bought a self-inflating mattress at CDN Tire this morning.
I needed to be at Kal Tire at 7:30, so I headed straight there, then went for breakfast. The work was done by 10:30 and seeing the new front tires helped me accept the mechanic’s assertion that there is no reason to change the rear ones at this time since they have just about as much tread left on them. I was told to have all tires balanced periodically and eventually move the new front ones to the rear. The alignment made a huge difference to how the car drives. I can’t believe I didn’t recognize that there was a problem!
And, so, the tedious item knocked off my to-do list, it was time to see some tall mountains, touch prehistory, discover that I’m a natural at using an ancient weapon, and gaze upon some relics of Yukon transportation history. And all by 5PM! The pictures will be worth waiting for the story. 🙂Share on Facebook
