How Many Days Until You Head North ?

Postby F250 » Thu Aug 29, 2013 5:45 am

We leave for Saskatchewan on September 22. 1995 miles from my driveway to the farm driveway. My wife, me, and the dog for the first week. She flies home and my buddy flies in. Another week or so of hunting, then the long drive home.

Leaving around the 21st for 14 days. 3000 miles one way from Florida which takes 40-48 hours. The drive is torture but worth every minute.

It's now only three days and counting until Saskatchewan. Can't wait until I can bring my son up with me. A little too young yet to handle the rigors of a Canada trip.
