The adventure begins today! I'm catching the 5 o'clock ferry over to Vancouver tonight with Janice, Steve and Vinny. We're meeting up with Shayne and Missie at the Slam tonight and then off to Calgary tomorrow in a rented van. I'm all stocked up on rice crackers, Cliff bars and candy for the road trip and anxious to get to CFSW to party it up with the poets of Canada. However, not so stoked on the forecast of high of zero and chance of flurries the first day we're there. Blech. Oh well, I am a prairie girl deep down and with the right combo of sweaters and boots I should stay warm enough. I'm thinking it's going to feel like a tropical paradise when we finally land back in beautiful B.C.
Well this little chickadee is off to pack. Then I'm going to make some mix cd's and go stock up on Sudoku and crossword puzzle books to make the trip go faster. Also, maybe get drunk. Just kidding! That can wait till I'm in Calgary or at least till it's after noon. I'll try to keep y'all updated on the slam goings on as they occur.
