An outfit has started a contract to upgrade a couple kilometers of the road along the lake, it was improved on either side in the past few seasons, and this remaining section will tie it all together. With the drilling and blasting and buggering around going on they close it for two hours at a time. These two hour closures have become almost normal out in this country the past few seasons as they continue to upgrade the road in sections here and there. Its a pain in the ass alright, but I'm all for road improvements. I have a pretty good idea of how long it takes to get there without having to wait too long, and pulled out of here at 9 to connect with the 10 o'clock opening.
Didn't have to wait long, and spent 10 minutes chatting through the window to my pals Charlie and Vern before someone came and removed the barricades.
Ran around Pemberton shopping, eating, filling up the truck and Jerry cans with that cheap gas we have right now and hit the road back, allowing an hour to the 2 o'clock opening, and arriving home just after 3, with groceries, gummy bears and cat food enough to last a couple weeks out here.
