Thanks. I spent my birthday on the road, wasn't much fun staying at a motel in the middle of literally nowhere (look up White River on HWY 17 in Ontario).

I've got to meet Chris from Marathon though, really intersting feeling being in a town you've never visited before, yet knowing a lot by the photos.

The previous day was also ruined by a speeding ticket, we were doing 140 in a 90 zone (I wasn't driving, but I would of drove the same way). Turns out cops actually patrol roads in Ontario, unlike Manitoba where its not unusual to see cars speeding way over the limit.
