Mike might need some work on his Canadian geography; that's a 30-hour drive.

Maybe a 30-hour bike ride. It's only 485 miles or so. 8 hours, 10 with stops.

I'm assuming bullfrog was thinking the game was in Toronto, not Winnipeg.

Where do you suppose the nearest airport to Aneroid even is?

Regina most likely.  (3 hr drive from Aneroid)  Only 5 more hours (driving time) to Winterpeg.  Flight would be 1 hr, plus check in time before, having to hail a cab after etc.  Probably would only save a few hours.

Yeah, I looked at a map and Aneroid is practically a straight line west from Winnipeg. A long drive, sure, but not a tricky one.

Remember the game day threads where it would be a bunch of lamenting about how the Leafs were going to get some top end talent, and not a discussion on how Patrick Marleau's parents got to the game?

I mean, game day threads have always had room for nonsense.

Oh it's great stuff, don't get me wrong.  This discussion is really helping me plan my trip out west next summer.

ha!

ooops... I guess I owe Mike an apology. Ya, i was thinking Toronto. Probably annoyed from a recent trip to Toronto where I have my bi-monthly conversation with a taxi driver to explain "no......not North Bay, Thunder Bay."

Last drive to BC from Collingwood, Kirkland Lake, Thunder Bay (great drive around North Superior),  Regina (that was a long drive 14 hours), Lake Louise, and the final day through the Kicking Horse and Rogers Passes (spectacular) and onto Kelowna. I love the Okanogan.
