Well all i can say is that the 16 hours have been absolutely insane. Im working night shift this week which is 11 p.m to 7 a.m but the machines that we were working on (3 of them in fact) all decided not to work last night so i said fine, sucked it up , took some of my paid vacation and left at three. (It doesnt really matter ne ways cause tonite is my last day of work before i leave whoot) Anywhoo i called my sister to come pick me up. My work is about 20 minutes from where i live so i told my sis i'd put 10 bucks in her car, and then she decided that we should go to timmy's in winkler for something to eat and i was kind of hungry so i said sure. So after about 20 minutes of NOT getting what we want (no bagels, no low fat blueberry muffins, no hearty vegetable soup) and sitting at the drive thru joking with the worker we were on our way home. Then on the way home my sisters like i feel like doing something, we should go on a road trip, and im like when?? Now?? and she's like yeah and mind you this is nearing four o'clock in the morning. So we go home, pack some clothes, grab our blankets and hit the road. Ill get into more detail and pics later on but im on my gramps computer and he lives in teh country so all they got is dial up. But let me just say that i havent slept in 26 hours and i have to go to work in less than 5 hours but it was one of the FUNNEST TIMES OF MY LIFE!! Haha ok im done now.

Well done! It looks like you had an awesome time. I loved the cutting the tomato with a credit card. That is classic road trip right there.

A Manitoba roadtrip! That's great! Which beach did you go to? Where did the trip take you? If you post your itinerary it might be boring to non-Manitobans, but right now I'm loving that you did that!

PS. For the record, Manitoba is generally prairie fields followed by more fields and stops in 1 street towns. I'm so glad you had fun!!
