Either of the two "sandwich artists" who served us today. Let's just say that these gals were the finger-painting equivalent of a "sandwhich artist" and that I was under the impression verbally communicating using one-word sentences was abandoned soon after fire was discovered...
A good mix of living, breathing porcupines and deer and not as much unidentifiable ditch-dressing. A notable increase in the insect guts gracing the front of our ride has been occuring since we somewhere around the 'Peg.
Rowdiness of the patrons above us at Kenora's Days Inn tonight:
Mild-to-"what the heck?!"
Saskatchewan does not believe in road signage - of any sort. Alberta, Manitoba and Ontario all "welcomed us" whereas we just kind of figured we were in Saskatchewan due to the rise in SK license plates around us. After that we saw about 2 signs for Regina and maybe 2 more for Winnipeg.
