Day Zero

Prairie Chicken has taken flight!

… not very far, mind, but definitely out of the coop. Big thank you to my friend Manny who made the flight from Port Hardy to Vancouver possible:

We flew in the Saab 320, (I think), which is neither here nor there except that it has an interesting sign at the front of the cabin: “In Case of Emergency Fire Extinguisher and Oxygen Tanks”. …boy, things could get a titch exciting if the person fighting the fire got confused.

I cleaned and laundered and packed from 8h15 to 14h30 today and STILL I have to thank people for looking after things I didn’t get to or forgot:

Aidan – thank you for investigating my oil tank and therefore the continued heating of my house

Ang – thank you for getting a cat carrier to my cat sitter

Manny – thank you for house sitting and therefore (eventually) cleaning the parts of the kitchen I wasn’t able to get to…

… wow this has turned in to a bloody Acceptance Speech…

Moving on > first meal on the road:

“The Happy Date Restaurant”

I suspect Kari felt it did not live up to the promise of its name.. however the food was delish and definitely different!

This was Kari’s meal. I had chicken and cabbage chow mien – approximately two pounds of it. In my belly!

We’re now safely tucked in to our room at the Ramada, and I have a date with the bath tub, Bill Bryson and maybe some Zopatol.

Note: if you have not read this book, drop everything, this instant, and acquire it.

  1. Oh yay, you’re blogging again! It has given me some motivation to post an update when I get home from work this evening. Bien viaje bella! I look forward to hearing about your relaxation and adventures. Also I am quite sure that Kari was happy with your date. You are an excellent date 😉
