Have to go to Medicine Hat next week with the wife to visit one of the her relatives. Her niece's husband has cancer and is not doing well.
I guess I'll pack a parka and sun screen because you never know what the weather is going to be like. I'm going to take the WS6 because I like the 6 speed on the highway. The car makes the same mileage that the Sunfire does with a lot more comfort. As much as the trip is not going to be very positive, I'm going to make it as pleasant as possible.

Hey, while in the Hat, There are two great places to eat (that I know of). One is called the Beef Eater, and the other is called Rusty's (I think) I cant remember where the Beef eater is, but Rusty's is right behind the Best Western. I used to eat at those two places alot when I was working down that way. Rusty's has the BEST beef ribs you will ever eat. Oh, and there is a pub there that the waitresses all wear langerie, (or how ever you spell it). Its got good food too. I think its called Stellettos. Have a good trip. Watch for the Antelope.

Hey Rudolf, very sorry for the reason of your trip.
You will like Medicine Hat, it is a nice little town and the folks are very nice.
There is some very strong muscle car's in that area, hope you see some.
Take Care, Pete

We're back. Unfortunately we were too late to say goodbye and too early for the service. We ended up staying a little longer than we planned for the service. Got a bit of an eye opener about railroad engineers.

Yes there were some nice cars in Medicine Hat, even saw an '02 CET parked under a tree in front of McDonald, several times. The person either worked there or really liked Big Mac's.

Went on a day trip to Manyberries just for the heck of it. I could see Sweetgrass mountain I was that close to Montana.

Killed alot of grasshopper along the way. The white car was not white by the time we got home. It took a day to get the colour off the car. The air dam really did it's job as there was almost no sign of grasshoppers on the radiator (unlike the time we took the truck and it was actually heating up by the time we got to Medicine Hat). The truck needed the radiator pressure washed to get the grasshoppers off, had to put bug screen in front on the drive home.
