After catching the flu from the grandkids at christmas, today was the best since. Changed oil and serviced both eng. Picked up all the tools still laying around from several small finished projects and stowed them away. Tomorrow we haul the final trash ashore and retrieve our dock lines. Southbound and down, best day of the new year for me.

You can't blame Maggie for the taxes imposed by successive Gov's on fuel, alcohol and cigarettes... they're the 'Milk Cow' of the state...
Why do you think the Banks and Politicians don't want us all the way in.... to much money to be made...

I'll have to wait another 6 months to check that out...

In Edmonton on a cold winters day the thought that it was worse in Winnipeg kept me going! Sure glad I left that behind. I left Edmonton in a -50C blizzard. Couldn't look back even if I wanted to!
