Thursday. Black clouds and the pitter patter of rain made for a rest day. Just as well because it gave us a chance to have a vet look at Michele no sorry the dog. Once the drugs had been prescribed we were all high as a kite. Off to the launderette to meet the local talent. The guy from the room next door in our boarding house was there also! quite a coincidence as it was 40 km from Lafleche . Not sure he understood our humor about swapping pants. Michele suggested I should keep my iPod in his purple Yfronts as I'm short of pockets! Yes well we were very bored.! Back in Lafleche we sort refuge from the storm in the local bar. Great selection of whiskey whiskey or whiskey so we opted for whiskey. Then back to the RV for chocolate and to watch the storms over the prairies. Good forecast for tomorrow so we will be in touch when we get WiFi again.

Places of interest in Lafleche..........None! They have (The Fringe) if you want a trim. Next to the bush basher’s pub on Hedge Street. Check out the Dormatory! On the plus side Weyburn not too far away 4* hotel with pool or riverside campground. Spoke to Rob today very upbeat and proud of your determination. Hope the weather is improving and the wind is helping you along.

I only found out yesterday that you'd started, so I've been playing catch up on the blog. I think the whole thing is abolutely tremendous. In fact you've inspired me to do Bahrain coast to coast. I'll set off from the causeway and finish at the Movenpick for brunch. I'll probably take the Mustang and put the top down for that authentic outdoor feel. I expect the whole trip to take around 20 minutes.

Not quite the same I know, but at least I'll be with you in spirits.

Good luck,

Hi Jo, you are making amazing progress, well done! The RV must be great for taking refuge etc! I'm a bit worried about all this roadkill you guys are leaving in your wake though...!!! And as for the guy from the Levis ad, purple underpants, I don't think so. Good story though, the lengths some people will go just to get near you and your heroine status!
Anyway, glad to hear that you are keeping those saddle sores at bay and keep up the good work! Jx
