This is the first time I've been out this way in two and a half years. I saw nothing but gray clouds and lush green grass as CBC Radio Saskatchewan faded into static. It was a great day for a drive and my route was clear and simple. Straight East, no curves no forks no hills, until I landed in Brandon. I've never been here before, but I have a good feeling about this place. It's and unplacable feel with no real cause, but it's a good one all the same. Ready or not, Manitoba, here I come.
