We are back in the US tonight! We enjoyed our time in Canada, but it's nice to be in our own country again.
Today, we left our hotel in NE Calgary and drove to the town of Canmore, Alberta, about 30 kilometers east of the town of Banff, so I could see some more Ammolite pendants. I found one I liked at the Ammonite Factory, so Dan bought …

While we washed off the bugs, several of the locals came by to talk to us about the plane. Turns out one of them was on the phone with Tanya Rutan, Burt's wife, and she wanted to know who owned the Long-EZ on the field and whether she could get a picture of it. She and Burt had moved to Coeur d'Alene a couple of years back, and she is working on her pilot's license while flying around the area.

Near Anaconda, MT, we saw the enormous strip mine, guarded over by the 40-foot tall statue of the Virgin Mary.
About the time we got to Missoula, we switched from checkers to chess. Alex is really good at chess, and if I want to keep from getting destroyed, I always have to focus on the game. Trying to fly a plane in moderate ...
... laws home right on Hwy 95, a very busy hwy. Tall firs block most of the hot sun except late in the day so Charli will stay cool, we have electric hookup from the workshop and fresh well water that tastes sweet and yummy. Best of all is the price - free.

... little pipe between the catalytic converter and my muffler had broke. I now had to go under my Jeep and disconnect my work that I had done the day before and remove my muffler and all the exhaust pipe after that. I was somewhat aggravated but you cant cry over spilled milk I say. Whats done is done. I now checked with a muffler shop in Sandpoint and on Monday morning I am going to run over there and get a new one hooked up.

We got a good price; the room is enormous compared to most modern hotels. This is a renovated motel that occupies 3 separate buildings, so I don't know about the condition of the rooms in the other 2 buildings. I suppose the 3 buildings were once 3 separate hotels that are now under La Quinta ownership. Our building also has a nice, roomy laundromat and a fitness center (with treadmill, elliptical, and weight machine) on the ground floor. We will have to go to the main Lobby building for breakfast in the morning.
