Road Trip out West, May 8 2017

Heather and I loaded up our slightly used but new to us 2015 Nissan Micra for a big trip out to the Pacific Ocean.

The first day was Winnipeg to Yorkton with a stop in Neepawa on the way by.

A house on skids all by itself in a farmer’s field. Oakville Manitoba

 

 

 

We jammed a lot of camping gear in the back of the Micra
