We were up and on the road this morning by 7:30. There was a light cloud covering today...hey, what happened to our nice blue sky?? We took the main route back to Hwy 2 rather than the so called scenic route. The road was in much better condition and we found it more scenic than the other one, seeing deer along the way.
We passed through Prince Albert, only stopping at the Flying J to fuel up. It was a pretty uneventful drive as we headed south but we did notice that the cloud covering was starting to look thicker. There hadn’t been any rain in the forecast when we checked yesterday...nah...it won’t rain. Well, about 45 minutes outside of Saskatoon it started to pour! Great...no wipers! It was a very stressful 45 minutes aided by Serena who kept telling us to turn off the highway where there weren’t any roads. There is a lot of highway construction/maintenance going on so perhaps that confused her....
There is a gravel lot across the street where they store their new pick-up trucks and they said that we could drop the 5th wheel there. So away we went and did that and brought the truck back...to wait for its turn with the technician.
We spent the night at the gravel lot where we had dropped the trailer. We were going to watch a movie—Steve had even hooked up the generator (at least we didn’t have to worry about bothering our neighbours with the noise)—but by the time we had dinner and cleaned up, it was late. So Steve decided to go to bed and read while I worked on the blog. I knew that it would likely be awhile before I had internet connection again, so I wanted to get it up to date.
