I hate the prairies

Maidstone to Battlefords

Day 23 (62 miles)

Not much to today, not even lunch. Overcast, raining, nothing seems attractive here and I yearn for a return to the mountains. We couldn't find anything for lunch and were nearly out of granola bars and Snickers by the time we rolled into the Battlefords. A Shell station leads to overeating followed by feeling not too good.

I'm amazed at the distance we've made under the conditions but that's what you do when there is nothing else.
