  1. WOW! Have a fun and safe trip to your new home! Oh, I sort of miss the prairies already. πŸ™‚

  2. Saskatchewan. Where you can watch your dog run away for 3 days. πŸ™‚
    Happy travels!

  3. Good luck on your journey! I brought my sewing machine on board with me when I moved cross country. πŸ˜€

  4. Coming from a small country myself, I don’t think I can even imagine such distances…
    And I do distinctly remember (from family holidays when I was little) the kinds of arguments kids can get in at the end of just one day in the car. I hope you’ll be relatively free of those.
    Best of luck to you and your family!

    • Yeah… I think the driving we did today would take us across several countries in most parts of Europe. πŸ˜‰ It was only one day of driving, fortunately. Fortunately on the kid-fighting front, my husband got some time alone with the car salesman when we were buying our car and we ended up with DVD-players in the back seat… they’ve kind of been a lifesaver, though.

    I miss big flat places (nearly 5 years since I said goodbye to Australia). Enjoy the journey!

    • I do enjoy the big skies. I’ve never actually lived somewhere that wasn’t mostly flat…. I should probably give it a try. Driving on hills is scary, though.

      • We can always tell the Albertans from the locals by the way they drive on our hills. Our hills also have corners! That really freaks them (you) out. 8-D Happy driving.

        • If you had said that the roads wound through trees and hills, I say it sounds very much like the Ozarks! Beautiful country, that. πŸ™‚

        • The corners with cliffs on one side and a gorgeous view everywhere nearly killed me many times on my way up to the Yukon. I kept having to force myself to leave the camera alone, you’re driving for crying out loud LOOK AT THE CLIFF NO DON’T LOOK AT THE CLIFF OMG SO PRETTY AAAAHHH CORNER.

          Ahem *cough*

  7. Next time I buy a car, I might need to borrow your hubby to negotiate for the DVD players. πŸ˜‰ Goodness knows that my husband thinks they are ridiculous and refuses to pay for them….

    Anyway, hope the rest of your car trip goes smoothly! πŸ™‚

  8. Safe travels.
    My Manitoban husband was hilarious when we went to the Laurentiens in Quebec with my parents. He kept taking video footage and pictures of my dad driving on hills. It was rather baffling until I went to Manitoba and saw the tobogganing pit in Brandon.

    Oh, happy adventures as you travel! I loved moving to the U.S. midwest, both times I did it. It was truly like moving to a foreign country, except the currency was the same; and the language was (sort of ) the same, too. You are some hundreds of miles further north on that great mid-continental plane, but I’ll bet the open skies and roads-laid-out-in-a-grid are much the same.

    Yes, this. Exactly this.

    We’ll be making a quick road-trip that looks just like this over the weekend (as long as doesn’t conspire to prevent me – touch wood), but a little further south at the one end.

    Best of luck with the move!

  11. I LOVE that photo. I’ve always wanted to do a series of paintings like that– looking out the car window at the open road.
