My other favourite pic of the trip, looking down at Peyto Lake from Bow Summit.

A small update for what was actually something like 5 hours of trekking south along the Rocky Mountain foothills.



This is Just a random hill along some dusty road along the way to Head-Smashed-In Buffalo Jump while avoiding herds of cattle and what not. Probably one my favourite pictures of the whole trip, for some reason.

So, as I was saying, the weather wasn't looking all that great but I continued on down the David Thompson Highway towards the Rockies. The highway was quickly getting lonelier, with mostly just recreational vehicles here and there to be seen. Once I actually got into the Rockies though, the weather quickly began to look up...



Mt. Michener looking sort of eerie from the eastern end of Lake Abraham.

So way back on August 10th, I got a call at 9am from my manager asking me to go to Alberta for two weeks to help them out there because, what with the labour shortages, they were short handed and needed help to fulfill some customer commitments. Seeing as how I don't really travel much, other than for random road trips, I said yes to their request. Next thing I know, that Sunday I'm on a jet to Calgary.

I made sure I was prepared with my camera and actually used it (although I've realized I should have probably invested in a polarizing filter). Typically I bring my camera all over the place but don't really end up using it much. I must've ended up taking around 1000 pictures and about 5 videos this time though. Thankfully, good ol' Photoshop made some of them actually acceptable in the end. Hah.

Even though Alberta seemed to have an hour plus more daylight than Windsor and I was there for a whole two weeks, this still didn't leave as much time as I would've liked to actually go off and see and do things. I did work a good deal of the time, mostly during the day, but I did have some time off. So it turned out to be a whirlwind of work, followed by trying to see some sights before it got too dark out. Sometimes I had planned things out the night before although as you might be able to tell from the map below, some of it was just randomly picking seemingly interesting routes. And hey, it was all on the company dime so either way, win-win.


More or less a map of my travels...

And the unofficial theme song of my trip, "Like Killers" (WMA/MP3) by Hot Little Rocket. This was due to the fact that the van the company supplied me with was of the cargo variety and thus, had only a cassette player. :/ So much for all my CDs I brought. And the flights there and back would've been the only time I actually needed an mp3 player, seeing as how I've never cared to purchase one of those before either. Oh well. I was able to find the local campus stations though.

Anyway...

Like I said, I took a small mountain of photos, but there's only a medium sized pile that I'll actually share. And I'll spare everyone by spreading the posts out or something. So folks, please bear with me for the next however many weeks. Hah...

From the Detroit Tigers ALDS clincher game against the Yankees, October 7th, 2006





Even if they somehow manage to go all the way this year and win the World Series, there's no way that last year's magic can be duplicated. Despite that, and because we had so much fun going down to the ballpark last season, this season I went crazy and bought one of the season tickets packages.

We're going to go to a bunch of games, and my brother is taking half of them, but we'll still have some left. So if anyone wants to go to a ballgame or two during the year for cheap (face value), let me know. :P

Nothing really going on lately so this is kind of a minor event...

But as of yesterday, I'm half way paid off on my house

That's way ahead of my forecast. We'll see how I'm doing in two more years.

Some random cut-n-paste web comic that I just discovered, but I have to admit laughing pretty hard at some of them: Married To The Sea. Even seemingly simple crap like this:



Also, because I'm a dick, instead of just ignoring every random douche that tries to friend me on myspace, I'm instead accepting everyone now so I can pornfreak or goatse them. Lalz.

Post for folks that don't read the windsor_users community



Also, Rob Crow has finally released a solo album that I really like. Too bad he's coming no less than a three hour drive from here. Oh well.

So I saw Sloan for approximately the thirtieth(!?!) time on Saturday night at St. Andrew's Hall...



Despite the fact that their latest album still hasn't given me any great hope of a flashback to their musical prime anytime soon, you can almost always count on them to put on a good show regardless. And good it was...

The full gallery Trace put up is HERE

The gallery is a little heavier on the Patrick and Andrew side since she has a thing for them, of course. Hah.

Of note also, for some reason this particular show became some sort of mini Sloan-con event when a small posse of folks from the Sloan Message Board decided to attend. I was one of them (seeing as how I currently host the board) but didn't really participate. For the most part, I just devil horned them from afar since I am too shy. Hah.

Afterwards we were at the 7-11 in Wixom getting some Slurpees. Tracey noticed that one of the purple looking flavours had a plain white piece of paper over it instead of a label, and scrawled on it in black ink was the word "BAWLS". At the time it seemed like it was most likely the work of a prankster but upon researching, it turns out it's actually a quite real name for an over caffeinated beverage. How retarded.
