Winnipeg and then Thunder Bay

What's this thing? I'll give you a hit: the NIPs ain't bad.

The drive to Winnipeg was fine. My rig will do about 95 kph with a big death oscillation occurring about every 10 min. Needless to say I like dual lane roads. If you drive 85 then it's pretty stable all the time - but that's a bit slow.

We went to see a Rodin exhibit at the WAG. Bronze sculpture is REALLY hard core. Foundries are cool. There was also an impressive Chris Pratt exhibit. That man has spent many hours behind his little brushes. I am only mentioning this because, for the first time ever, I actually had a really satisfying experience at an art gallery. Pretty good eh Ag?

More carnage east of Kenora. This time the fatalities were front page news in Winnipeg and Thunder Bay. I like the dual lane roads.

Noise canceling headphones, 279 albums on the MAC dual arms rests and front/rear heat. This is how it's done. I'm still impressed with the AWD Astro Van. It seems like a pretty good bang for the buck.

The Thunder Bay apartment I lived in circa 1998-99. Yet another low-budget basement. I've been six feet under for some time now.

This is where I acquired 12% of my current knowledge. The main lecture hall at Lakehead U.

This hall-art was in progress while I was at LU. Everyday I came to school there was an impressive amount of new progress by this possessed artist. I would have needed about 100 pics to cover the 200 foot mural. They batteries died after the first two. I'm sure you get the picture.
