Another easy run stage as I had the prairie wind almost blow me the way
Belle Plaine to Regina :-)
Regina is the capital of the Saskatchewan province, has a population of
about 200 000 people and is the home of the national Training Academy for
the Canadian Mounted Police. Word has it that it started out as a "tent
settlement" named "Pile O' Bones" back in 1882!
But besides this, Regina is also the host of some of the most scary
highway traffic I have encountered the last few thousand kilometres. But
as always in Canada: nice people when you get to talk w. them :-)!
As for the tent business then it looks like I will be in for a bit of that
the next few days after a period of motel luxury, which was necessary to
restore the motivation and strength.
But the open stretch out towards the Manitoba province doesn?t appear to
offer much of a choice: tent at roadside.. or tent a bit away from
roadside ! ;-)
