We knew that the drive from Canmore to Fernie would be long, over 300km, especially done two days in a row but it was completely worth it to catch up with some old friends, the Nanningas. They used to live in Raurimu, 5 minutes from National Park, a few years ago but had migrated to Canada, Kent's home country.

We go out for supper and decide for a pizza which we take to the room and eat just before a film session, today : "127 hours". Incredible real story. Last year we were quite near where it all happened, in Canyonlands NP (Utah).
