It was a great Christmas. Got off work on Tuesday, December 23rd and drove all night to Vernon. Made good time - something like 7:20 for 650 km. Ryan, Becky and kids were awesome. Had a good visit with all concerned. Drove back on December 27th. Took a bit longer, something like 7:45. The road from Vernon to Falkland was if not the worst stretch of road I've ever driven then in the top three for sure. It was all I could do to keep within the lines on the road driving 30+ km under the speed limit with studded ice/snow tires.
