Buy a different vehicle. The Kia needed brakes and some other work. While driving by a car lot I saw a 2010 Ford Ranger 4.0l V6 2WD with under 75,000km on it. So I bought it.
There is nothing really wrong with the Kia and I plan on doing the repairs at a later date. For the time being I just wanted something different. The truck is definitely better suited for the back roads in Alberta.
North of Edmonton, just west of Bon Accord, north on Lily Lake Road (also known as Range Road 235) you will find a little place named Fedorah. On one side of the paved road is two churches and opposite one church is the old Fedorah School. Opposite the other church is an old hall. This is all that is left of what once was here.
Ukrainian Catholic Church.
Two churches on the same side of the road, looking north along Lily Lake Road.
It was time for a break from gardening so I decided to make an overnight road trip to Eastend, Saskatchewan this past week. On the way I passed through Piapot where I found some relics of the past. Enjoy!
This steam powered beast makes a statement!
An old boiler tank.
A virginia creeper vine has almost covered this piece of machinery...I'm not sure what's underneath.
Lots of steam-powered equipment came from Minneapolis.
