After a hotel breakfast (cereal and banana), Badger and I headed in towards the big city, starting with a pilgrimage stop at the place of his assembly in St. Albert to replenish stock on good chain lube, and search for a fork seal cleaner tool. Two for two, plus service with a smile from a parts woman formerly of Dawson City, Yukon.
From Riverside, I headed into Edmonton. Within 15 minutes, I was at DEFCON 3 and absolutely re-convinced of my theory that remoteness is safety -- after seeing a right-hand turning sedan veer in front of and nearly be rear-ended by a water truck, a shoulder check-less freeway lane change nearly causing a sideswipe, and a Jeep Patriot on its roof on my exit ramp.
