They are working on our trailer already - one doing the tires, and another working on the brake lines. Good service! Oh, there might be a 3rd guy now as well. So far we've been very happy with the people from Kal Tire, both in Brandon and Steinbach, MB. They have been helpful (like Jason yesterday getting us all set up in our "campsite". And with any luck today as well.

All is good! Carm and I were talking last night about how in our lives so far we haven't had to deal with much going wrong (forgetting of course the big bipolar thing). We have had a few things go wrong this trip, one of which has impacted how we use the trailer every day. But we have taken everything in stride and not gotten ourselves too much into knots. So really, it has been a growth experience ;-) How's that for a Pollyanna outlook!

-- 1/2 hour later, just one tire to go and the brakes are fixed. It was almost like we were in a Nascar pit with workers everywhere. At this rate, and with any luck, we'll be at Rushing River in no time! (well, 2 1/2 hours from now). Wait! The last tire is done so we just have to pay the bill and we'll be on our way. 4 new better quality tires & brake work - ouch.

Oh, yes; the game was to just find something about everything to be glad about—no matter what 'twas” ― Eleanor H. Porter, Pollyanna
