|Assiniboia River Valley|
Just as I left Redvers another huge lightning storm hit with very heavy rain, and that lasted about until noon. The rest of the day was nice, blue skies and a bit of heat.
Gas prices have been holding steady at $1.26 for the past two days.
It's been a long day, and bad weather is coming in again, so I have detoured to Swift Current for the night and grabbed a motel.
Once again there were no 2m repeater contacts made, and nothing on 146.520 simplex either. I hit every repeater along the route, and nothing but silence was heard. I thought I might have made a contact in Weyburn, but that repeater is dead too.
Tomorrow I hope to make it to Fernie, BC. Can't wait to see the mountains again.
