Day 6 – Mar 4th

Last day of training. 😦 Today’s MC was Don Henry, the Director of the Australian branch of the Climate Reality Project. (Gotta love his accent!) Oddly, he’s a university professor in Australia, but they never refer to him as a Dr. I wonder if that means he doesn’t have a PhD, or if he just…

Day 5 – Mar 3rd

Sorry I’m not writing this on the night of the fourth, but I was so exhausted after day 2 and 3 of training that I pretty much went right back to the hotel and did nothing! Day 2 of training was just as awesome as day 1, except we also got breakfast because the program…

Day 4 – Mar 2nd

Wow … today was the first day of training, and it was awesome! I must have had the same thought as many folks, because I didn’t arrive at the Convention Centre until about 9:30am. There was a big line to register, but it went very quickly. Once registered, I received my training book, name badge,…

Why I Am Here

“The Blue Marble” — A photo of the Earth taken by the crew of Apollo 17, the last manned mission to the moon. And the last photo of the whole planet taken by a human being. It is also one of the most reproduced images in human history, and I just reproduced it again! This…

Day 3 – Mar 1st

Wow – today was interesting! I had set my alarm to get up at 9am, but was awaken when housekeeping knocked on the door at 8:30am. That seems awfully early for housekeeping to start cleaning rooms. Since I was awake, I just got up. I left the hotel around 9:15am and headed for the highway…

Day 2 – Feb 28th

Today I woke up with my alarm at 8am at the Super 8 hotel in Lewistown, Montana. I then reset my alarm to 9am. Then I pressed the snooze button twice! Getting ready to get going sure goes a lot faster when you don’t have 5 cats to feed! I stopped for coffee at McDonalds…

Day 1 – Feb 27th

Left Edmonton around 9am, arrived in Lewiston, MT around 8pm. Approximately 1,000 km of driving. Stops: Edmonton – McDonalds – a much needed coffee. Brooks – Gas Station – empty light was on! Taber – McDonalds – afternoon snack. US Border Crossing – no issues what-so-ever. Great Falls, MT – Gas Station, ATM, and McDonalds…
