The road was again rough but manageable. We saw plenty of livestock: Horses and Cattle.

The spots here at Pioneer are very very cramp. We had to drive in forward, and we are looking at a dirt bank. Luckily, neither of our neighbors have pop-outs so we are snug but fit.

The Pioneer also sells gasoline at a $.03 per liter discount. Of course, right as Paul was hooking up the ‘Beast,’ a down pour occurred. Great for cleaning off the vehicles, but Paul got drenched.

We did some grocery shopping at the Sav-On Food and discovered that if you inform the clerk that you live out of state, they give you the club member price. They were reasonably stock and priced.

That left us with just enough time for making dinner, showers, and a bit of television before bed.

Wildlife Spotted: Wild Horse, Moose (side road), Hopping Raven, Artic Squirrels, Juncos
