Kenora to Thunder Bay

We drove allllll night to get to

 Thunder Bay

(Insert Celine Dion here)

Well not all night it was all day. All day.

It was about nine at night when we pulled in to the parking lot at ye ‘ol walmart. My favorite campsites.

Why because they are free and close to highways. Sometimes this doesn’t work out because it:

A. Brings out more sketchy drivers (like the weird  one who wouldn’t pass us then did three figure eights in the parking lot and parked right beside us)

B. It is not always off a hwy

C. Once we spent more there than we would camping.

But in general it saves you money so you can do more. 

But before all that was this.

I think this post might overlap yesterdays but I can’t check right now… there isn’t a cell signal or wifi. It’s like we’re on the 80’s… with the RV to match it.  Ha ha ha.
We saw a great sign in Rennie check  out the picture. 

I checked the lug nuts there as it felt like a wheel was going to fall off.
Part way down the road we saw an amputee man walking/running and across the road there was an RV pacing him with 4 way flashers on.

This seemed big.

Like something in the making.

So I pulled over and I googled it.  Honestly.  Thanks to technology I was able to quickly learn about Guy through a series of newspaper articles and vimeo video clips.  We drove backdown the hwy. We spoke to his driver. She offered us a ride in their RV up to him as he was going uphill, in the rain with a lot of oncoming  traffic so stopping there was less of a good choice. We waited till he was on the downswing of the hill. 

He is a very kind friendly and nice man.

It was an honour to meet him.

Check out these videos.
We then saw Egli (sp) sheep farm.  Sadly they were closed.  They process their own wool and everything.  Landscape wise it seemed like a massive  operation.

Then we hit Thunder Bay after passing to our final time zone change. Googling walmarts enroute to see which were hospitable and driving through a lot of rain. The last two gas stations didn’t advertize their prices.  That’s because  they were preying on  those who needed it at a mere 135.9 greedy monsters.

Thunder Bay.

I’ll reserve my opinion on it for tomorrow when we’ve seen more if it.
