Hot enough for ya?

According to Environment Canada, we were up to 30C (86F) today. My thermometer said 31C. Close enough. Honestly, I like the heat in short doses, but this is a bit hotter inside then I like.

So with that in mind, Lori has accepted a job offer in Kelowna! 36C (97F) today, not quite as hot as Texas, but close.

Still some details to arrange, but she’ll be starting in a week and a half, I won’t be moving for a couple months or so, with the goal being to let her decide if she likes the job, and take a bit of time to find a place before we uproot and move.

One of the big perks of working remotely is that I can move without having to do the find-a-new-job thing. When you’re already 2000 miles from your office, what’s another 250 miles?

Wandering soon – Johnston Canyon next?

Good morning from Two Jack Campground – Lakeside

One thing that is interesting about being in the National Parks, most of the campgrounds have hot showers and flush toilets rather then outhouses. I’m not sure if that justifies the higher price or not, but it is nice having a hot shower before popping online to get some work-work done. $8.80 for a fire permit does seem a little high too (although in fairness that includes wood)

Assuming I can get caught up on work in a reasonable amount of time we’re going to head over to Johnston Canyon next, where we don’t believe I will have connectivity, so expect posts to be delayed for a day.

Two Jack Campground – Lakeside

Welp, one night in Tunnel Mountain was about enough, nothing to do there, and it was cold and rainy (I blame the campground management, obviously), so on we meander.

Hit Smitty’s in Banff for breakfast, so-so food, I’ve had worse, but I’ve had better. Oh well.

Off to Two Jack Campground, the Lakeside version. We drove through Lakeside first, then over to Main to investigate both. Main wasn’t great, sparse trees, sites close to each other, and nothing for a 31′ motorhome, so back to Lakeside. Between the time we first entered and when we returned we lost the site we were eyeballing (although it sounds like it probably happened while we were driving the loop anyway, so the sidetrip to check out Main probably didn’t kill us)

We grabbed site #2, which I think it probably a better site then the other option anyway, just took a bit of a creative parking job to properly utilize it. A hotdog lunch later, and here we are.

For those curious, we’re right on the south-west end of the lake, and can see to the southern tip. It doesn’t sound like there is a hike around the lake available though, although we may go look and see how far we can go without too much pain.
