some of it was in excellent shape, but it got so bad at one point it got so bad my wife crying as she has a bad back. Some good drugs made it liveable.

Hopefully she won't have to endure that anywhere else on your trip. Hwy 60 between Mackey & Pembroke is great (thru there last Nov').

well made it to Barrie at 7:30pm local last night. Was a decent days traveling except for abt the 1st 2 hrs near Hearst, the road was really rough again. There was some delays north of Huntsvilles as there is major highway reconstruction going on but all in all a good day. The KOA here in Barrie is beautiful although expensive as we have a nice end pull through full service site. Fuel costs went from $1.04/litre in Moose Jaw to as high as $1.25/litre up around the Thunder Bay area and that is for mid grade or premimum. It is interesting that in Moose Jaw there is a 5 cent per litre difference between regular and mid but in Manitoba there was 10 or 15 cents difference. The 2835km cost us $875.00 for fuel. But it was a nice trip as the truck seems to have worked better the further we drove. Even handled big cross winds with minimal sway thanks to the Blue Ox hitch that had had set the torque on the bars to 70ft/lbs.

John: about your gas prices. I found out in '95 that the prices in Kenora were terrible. I had filled up in Portage La Prairie, heading for TB. I wasn't really sure if I'd make it to TB w/ a the gas I had, so I filled up in Kenora. Rolled into TB & filled up that night. Turns out I had lots of gas left & the price was about 5 cents a liter cheaper.
