Okay...I`m current.  Hopefully it stays this way.  I`m at the HooDoo RV Park north of East Coutlee and South of Drumheller.  It`s $20 a night for a campsite and they have WiFi so I`m here with a billion other people with 10 feet of grass and a firepit.  I`m totally in overflow so it`s interesting.  My neighbours seem nice.  Had a guy offer me an axe.... haha, insert funny comment here.....cause I was whacking away at a piece of wood to get kindling. 

Not the kind of place I would usually pick but really wanted the internet connection so I could get current.   No luck uploading pics, everything is really slow cause of the all the other laptops here!  Seriously a big place...  I`m screwed if I have to pee cause the bathroom is a looonnng ways...hello shewee....

Was up at 8:30am today to the sound of rain, yes it was pouring!  Had a quick shower and said goodbye to Hilda & Ian.  Mark was there too so I got to see him. 

I left to hijack some wifi then headed out.  Made my way to Vulcan and saw the spaceship and the visitors centre.  Again, have some funny pics - another time.

Was following the GPS towards Drumheller when I saw a sign for East Coulee which was close to the HooDoo`s so thought I`d head that way and find a place for the night.  I headed up on a gravel road - holy crap!  Totally took the back way!  Other than going 50km - well below the posted 80km and wondering what the hell I was doing, it was pretty cool cause I decended down into the rock formations and came across the Atlas Coal Mine.  The tours were booked up so I just wandered and streched my legs.  Was cool though.  I saw the brochure for this RV park there. 

It was about 4pm and I was done driving for the day so stopped here....and voila! 

The wifi wasnt working at my site so I`ve been sitting in the office for the past hour updating the blog.  Was trying to get the photos to work - forever - but.... hopefully not an ongoing issue.

Time to head back to my site, start a fire, drink some beer and cook up the dogs!   Dont be jealous, the mosquitos are vicious!
