We arrived in Canmore the evening of July 15, 2013 and Bill was there to meet me and drove us (another 4 hours) to Edmonton that evening. We arrived around midnight and visited with Stephanie and the baby, and then with Rob, when he arrived home from work at 3am. We spent two nights visiting them and then started our journey to Saskatoon to pick up James and continued to St-Pierre to visit my family.
What a jammed packed week of visiting! We stayed up late most nights, spent most days drywalling together, bouldered every morning with the kids, visited with friends and family in the evenings, and on our day off from drywalling we played softball, flew kites and launched paper laterns. What great fun! Bill and also also got "flamingoed" for our birthdays: 60 and 40 this year!
This is the longest combined road trip I have ever taken: 42 hours from Alaska to Canmore, then 4 hours to Edmonton, then 16 hours to St-Pierre and 18 hours back, for a total of 80 hours (or two work weeks) of driving. That's definitely my quota for a while! :)
