Barb's Place,Amanda and Manyberries

Our first overnight stop was at Barb's place in Calgary. And for those of you who are worried that you are going to get a day by day discription of the road trip, relax, I wouldn't torture anyone that way. Well maybe a few people.
 Davie was a real gentleman at Barb's place, he didn't even bark at her, well at least not until the next morning when she showed up in her house coat. Much better than his predecessor Maggie, who was known to jump on the bed in the middle of the night and stand over her and howl if the bedroom door wasn't closed.
He was very impressed with Barb's cooking as was I. She is an awesome cook. Thanks Barb for letting us stay.

Are you sure none of that is for me??

The next day after an emergency stop at Mountain Equipment Coop because although I remembered all Davie's stuff I forgot my jacket we headed to Fort MacLeod to start at the beginning of the Red Coat Trail. Our objective was to follow this route through Alberta and Saskatchewan before heading north the the farm.

We next headed to Lethbridge to meet up with Amanda to return the crate Davie came in and a few other things. We met in a beautiful park that had a lot of trees. I am sure Davie checked every one for squirrels. It was so good to meet Amanda and be able to show her a very happy Davie. I really don't know how people can handle the emotional ups and downs of rescue. All I can say is a HUGE thank you to Amanda for finding me this awesome boy.

After Lethbridge it was down the Red Coat Trial to meet up with my brother in Manyberries. It is a very interesting and beautiful country down there. We arrived just after a day of pouring rain but in time for some beautiful skies.

This was our resting place for the night. Many thanks to Vicki and crew for a entertaining time and a roof over our heads. FYI all the streets in Manyberries are named after berries.
