And it's supposed to be warm again today. Quite a few campers showed up yesterday, and we're being told the lower campground is sold out for the weekend. We'll see. There always seems to be a cancellation or screw up that leaves us with a couple of empty sites and we haven't seen it totally full yet.
I went into town yesterday and bought an EpiPen kit for my apparent bee sting allergy. One of those things that you buy and hope that you never have to use.
Epipen kit for anaphylaxis reactions.
The kit cost $109.35 and my Mom volunteered to pay for it. Thanks Mom! Strange though, I went to buy it at Walmart's pharmacy and they rang up the bill and asked for $129! I had confirmed the price of $109 when I scoped it out a week ago so I was surprised. I asked if there was a tax of some kind on it. This is Canada after all! But no, there isn't. He went to double check things and came back and said he would charge me $109.35. Okay. I didn't ask, but there's obviously some kind of double standard. They probably charge insurance companies more than if you're paying out of your pocket. I know that double standard exists in most situations where insurance money is involved. One of the reasons dentists and doctors in "developed" countries are so expensive. Insurance of any kind is the biggest scam going.
The kit is a little bigger than I expected. Since you're supposed to carry it around with you wherever you go, I thought it would be a little more compact.
Thanks for all the feedback regarding the Tilley hats in yesterday's post. Looks like we're all pretty much on the same page regarding venting and wide brim. Turns out that there are two independent shops in nearby Prince Albert who sell Tilley Endurables hats so we'll try and go together next month and check them out before ordering. I doubt they'll have the newer styles in stock, but I guess we'll see. At least it will give us an idea.
Have a great Friday everyone!
