About Me

My photo
I am owned by Pauline and Mark Blasky. My hull was built at the Duncan Marine Yard in Taiwan and launched in Dec of 1980. It is a William Garden design based on the Pixie Design and called by Duncan Marine a Freedom 45. They are the fourth owners and have owned me the longest. They have done extensive refitting to me including replacing my entire deck structure and rig. My masts are roughly 10% taller than original and now are made of aluminium as opposed to the original wood ones, which, though pretty, were always problematic.

Road Trip a Day 5

Wow, what a difference a day makes!  Yesterday it was close to or did touch 80 degrees F.  This morning we left Whitecourt with rain and 47 degrees at 07:30.  By 10:30 we hit Hythe and already about 3 inches on the ground and 25 degrees.  I asked the girl at the petrol station how long it had been snowing and she said it had started sometime after 7:00.  By noon it looked like about 6 inches and they were just starting to get the plows and sanders out.  Lots of cars and trucks in the ditches some of them completely upside down including one tractor trailer.  Needless to say it was a very slow ride today but we still managed to get 537 miles under our belt.  We are currently in Fort Nelson and there is only a small amount of snow on the ground here.  The last hour and a half we were able to maintain the speed limit.  One funny thing as we were coming into Fort Nelson there was a police check.  Stopping every car to check for sobriety.  We told him we don't think we would have made it through all the snow if we were driving impaired.  Our car was very iced up as well so he knew we were telling the truth.
