A post just to post something

Trying to get posting again. My vehicle has been in the shop for a week. A part is on its way from Toronto. At this point I think it is being shipped by bicycle courier. I am using my winter beater in the meantime however I am not sure I can trust it for a long trip. Good times.

Not on the road again

Had plans to be out this weekend. I am actually supposed to be off on a few days vacation.

One of my vehicles is in the shop. It needs a part and the part is not available anywhere in my area. It is being sent from Ontario. That is the vehicle I was going to use. I should get it back next week.

I had plans to leave Friday and meet up with someone for a short roadtrip. The person came down with something, not COVID. I cancelled my time off and I am rescheduling. Most of what I have planned or scheduled this year has rarely worked out. That is not a complaint, it is an observation.

Spending my time re-evaluating a few things. My friend died recently and left a lot of things unfinished and a lot of things that he did not accomplish. I do not want to be that person. There is not a lot that I want to do but there are a few things. I have just been thinking how I want to spend the future and what is really important.

Out and about

Violetdale School 1918 - 1940

In rural Alberta located here:  52.2590, -110.9092

This was on my list for a year. It turned out to be a bit of a disappointment as I thought there would be more here. The road is more of a trail and it is like this for about two kilometres that goes over some hills, curves, and hugs the side of a hill.

The school site is on top of a hill where you can see the countryside in all directions. There is nothing there except for a foundation and a school sign. There are a lot of cow patties. Typical rural hazard.

It is a small school. It looks like it was under six hundred square feet. The location is a bit different as it is off the beaten path.
