Yes the world has changed.

No kidding. When I was a junior in HS in 1976 I brought my .270 rifle to school for a demonstration speech on "How to clean a hunting rifle." And that was in San Jose, CA.

Rifles

My junior high had a rifle range in the attic, that was used for training purposes in WWII. That would have been interesting to see kids walking to school with their rifles for class/practice. They have since torn that building down.

Ours was in the basement. When I took hunter's safety, I thought it was kinda weird yet sorta cool to be walking through the school w/ the .22's on our way down to the range.

Ahead of schedule

those 300mile days, day after day, had paid off. We had the luxury of a non-travel day in the bank, and we decided to cash it in. We beat a hasty retreat to Grande Cache, AB, and scouted around for a room.



We settled in at Misty Mountain Inn & Suites, which we would highly recommend. Best of all, it was DRY!, nearly empty (this being off season), roomy, well-appointed, and cheap.

We had a suite with a kitchen, so after we ditched our gear to dry,



we took a walk to buy groceries and resupply.



Why don't we have this in the states?



Not that it matters, LDF wouldn't let me buy any.

We stopped at the visitor's center

or "Centre" in canadian, where we succeeded in finding the proper Backwoods mapbook for Central Alberta,



saw some neat displays, this one explains the headless animal we saw running around:



Watch out!



hello kitty,



Interestingly, neither of the naturalists working at the centre were able to identify the black furry rodent-like beast I'd seen on the forestry trunk road from the day before.



I'm sticking with "woodland caribou". That's my final answer.

The rest of the day was spent

having a nice steak for lunch,



enjoying quality time in front of a legal campfire,



and cooking ribs, setting off the smoke detector and having a nice bottle of wine for dinner.









We slept well, dreamed of sunny days, and hoped for an early, dry start to tomorrow.

A well-earned 25 miles.

You left a prodigal amount of meat on those ribs, camper.

My god, it was a miracle we ate as much as we did -- when we were food shopping our eyes were WAY bigger than our stomachs! I thought we were going to explode.

PS, nice use of the word prodigal!

Short time member, long time lurker. Want to use my first post to give you guys a real high five.

I've enjoyed your ride reports from the beginning and wish you the best on where ever the Mobius takes you.

Thanks, John -- I'm working to finish writing up this leg, 'cause we're already packing for M8!
