Calgary – Week 1

We have been in Calgary a little over a week and so far so good – despite being greeted bysnow upon arrival.  Thankfully the weather has returned to normal. On Sunday we were driven around the city to numerous open houses. It was great to get out and familiarize ourselves with the city & to see what your money gets you. The housing market…

So Long Vancouver

Tomorrow is the big day. We finally leave for Calgary. It’s going to be super busy & crazy. Matt needs to go to work for a few hours before we can pick up the moving van & trailer for the motorcycle – which of course are at two different UHaul locations.   We then need to pack the van. Hoping…

These…

Housing…

Race Day

The day started with my alarm going off at 6:00am. I jumped at the sound of it, forgetting why I had set it.  Then I remembered – it’s race day.  We ate, changed and headed out the door.  As we were walking towards the start we could hear O Canada being played. Got to the start line just as they were doing…
