Stage 41
Brandon, MB to Manitoba Border, MB.

The day started with Aman doing the Ardas next to the Bristol Bolingbroke plane outside our motel along the Trans Canada Highway at 6:00am. As this was too early for breakfast the motel we got our breakfast bagged to enjoy along the way although some of us finished it in the lobby while waiting for the day to start. We were glad we started early as it was very much cooler that the day before and there was still mist/dew on the ground. Also a breath taking sight was the coming up of the sun at the break of dawn. Although we took pictures they do not capture the moment as the eyes see and wonder along the horizon.

The day was much the same as yesterday as there is a endless highway into the horizon and the view of the prairies as far as the eye can see. The weather was a little cooler than yesterday, just as hot but a breeze kept things reasonable. We have a lady RV driver who stopped and gave a donation, she was from Vancouver and said she would try to be at Stanley Park for the finish. We also had a small plane crop spraying flying back and forth over the runners. Towards the end of the day we pasted from Manitoba into Saskatchewan. As the runners picked up pins and details of the province we had other visitors at the information center donate some change to the youth also. Also there were lost of honks along the highway, the best ones being those long blasts from the tractor trailers.
