Having said that, in a couple of weeks we'll be doing our own marathon drive!
A week from today, we arrive in Ottawa. We'll spend a week visiting friends and family, then get the little blue car out of storage and head out on a 2,900 km (1,800 mile) drive to Cabri Regional Park in Saskatchewan where we'll work for the next five months.
Our upcoming drive.
But we've got 5 or 6 days to do the drive. Even if we do it in five, that's an average of 580 kms (360 miles) per day. Still more than we like, but at least you can take some time to stretch your legs along the way.
Speaking of Cabri, Saskatchewan, it seems they've had a bit of a heat wave this week. On Tuesday, the temperature got up to 20C (68F)! Talking to our contact there, she says the snow is pretty much gone. Yeehaw! This park is quite a bit further south than where we were last year, so we probably won't have to wait until mid-May for the ice to come off the lake!
It was a puttering around day yesterday. I began my cleaning chores for leaving Sherman behind. Took out the window screens and cleaned them and the window sills and the glass itself. Got the job half done. I'll finish it up this afternoon when the sun moves to the other side.
How about this ugly dude?? Ruth spotted him in the broomcloset near the laundry. His body alone was about 4" long!
