Window cleaning is off to the races! Its working out well, and I've got my technique down.

We saw a Perkins breakfast franchise in Regina that Meg hadn't heard of though, but I have. Woo-hoo suburbia! We pulled into Thunder Bay around 3PM on the 21st. The car sounded like a helicopter: thumpthumpthumpthumpthumpthump... Turns out a tire was out of whack. Canadian Tire replaced it quickly and at reasonable cost, on a Sunday! Maybe there's more to this suburbia thing after all... On the 23rd, Meg, Allison, Jess, Zack, Brian, Aaron, Ryan, Nick and I set out for Rossport to start the sea kayaking trip, after some delay.
