Today was the travel day to get from Calgary to Virden, Manitoba. It’s a little town just inside the Manitoba border. It’s two hours and 45 minutes from Regina, two hours and 30 minutes from Winnipeg and an hour from Brandon. Michelle and I are here to see Tundra Oil and Gas for the next few days and we had to figure out the best way to get here. In the end, we elected to fly to Regina and then drive from there. The weather cooperated, with the temperatures swinging into positive territory and sunny skies. It could have been blizzard conditions.
Michelle and I rented separate cars, because she is staying one more day on site after I leave. So it was a caravan from Regina. But not before we stopped for lunch at Victoria’s Tavern in Regina. I had eaten there before on a trip to see SaskEnergy, and so had Michelle on another trip. She wanted (very badly) to have their Stuffed French Onion Burger:
Gruyere cheese stuffed chuck patty topped with swiss cheese, caramelized onion, crispy fried onion, and roasted garlic mayo. Served on our house made swiss cheese bun.
We rented our cars at the airport and then drove downtown for lunch. It was 1:30 by that time. The burger was good…
Updated Tuesday Night
The first day of the workshop is done, and it went well. It was a full day of discovery. I went for a walk this evening before supper and took a few pictures of Virden.
