Tired of Driving Yet?

All photos taken on October 25, 2022.

We pulled out of Valemount shortly after 8 AM, with a plan to do a hike in Jasper National Park on the way through. It was a pretty morning and we were happy that precipitation had stopped for now.

Not much to tell. After working for 3 companies over 43+ years (38 years 7 months with my last company), I finally got that promotion I had waited my entire career for……retirement. I have been exploring this new career for the past 7+ years and while it is not always exciting, the chance to do what I want for myself and my family instead of what my company wants has been very fulfilling. Early on, there was a long list of projects in my “to-do” hopper and I attacked these projects with a vengeance for the first 9 months of retirement. Eventually, my brain told me that this was not what retirement was about, so it took me another 5 months before my industriousness again took over and I attacked another line of projects, this time somewhat shorter and less complicated, as well as many new projects related to the family weddings in 2016. After going hard for 6 weeks and 3 weddings, my body was telling me to relax, then the flu bug hit and as soon as that was done with me, my sciatic acted up. No rest for the wicked. In 2020 and 2021, the Covid 19 pandemic changed the whole retirement gig. I was lucky to not be still working, for sure. I enjoy photography, gardening, working with my hands, walking, cycling, skiing, travelling, reading and creating special photo and video productions obtained in my first pastime. I may never become wealthy in any of these pursuits, but I already feel I am rich in life experiences far beyond any expectation.

    1. Thanks Lyssy. No use getting upset with the “knights” of the road. I just let them get on their way and everyone was the better for it. Thanks for reading. Allan


  1. Such incredible scenery prior to the A-hole encounter. I despise these kinds of vehicles and, more often than not, the people who drive them. Glad to see from the comment thread that the windshield damage wasn’t too bad.

    1. Thanks Leighton. It was a beautiful drive. I only wish we had been stopping for a night or two to soak it all in. Yup, there was a time when the truckers were the knights of the road, but deadlines and expenses have made them care less about those around them. Thanks for reading and have a fabulous week. Allan
