Dianne’s Excellent Northern Adventure – Preview

Yes, I know the title shows my age but that’s okay. 🙂

Tomorrow I leave for a week of school readings up north. I am so excited! Here’s a map and my itinerary:

The blue balloon that’s farthest south is Martensville.

Sunday: I take the bus to La Ronge (the other blue balloon).

Monday: Drive to Hall Lake (the green pushpin closest to La Ronge) for a reading in the morning, then fly to Southend (the other green pushpin) for a reading in the afternoon. Fly back to La Ronge, then fly to Stony Rapids (the northernmost red pushpin).

Tuesday: Drive to Black Lake (the other red pushpin) for a reading in the morning, then back to Stony Rapids for a reading in the afternoon.

Wednesday: Fly to Uranium City (the northernmost yellow pushpin) for a reading in the morning, then fly to Fond du Lac (the other yellow pushpin) for a reading in the afternoon. Fly back to Stony Rapids.

Thursday: Fly to Wollaston Lake (the light blue pushpin) for a reading at the elementary school in the morning and at the high school in the afternoon. Fly back to La Ronge.

Friday: Drive to Grandmother’s Bay (the northernmost pink pushpin) for a reading in the morning, then drive to Sucker River (the other pink pushpin) for a reading in the afternoon. Drive back to La Ronge.

Saturday: Return home on the bus.

That’s the plan anyway. 🙂 Hopefully dear sweet Old Man Winter cooperates this time. (I was originally supposed to go in January, but because of the extreme cold it was postponed.)

I’m not taking my laptop because it’s too big, so I bought a Notebook – the paper kind. And I’m taking my camera. So once I get back I’ll be posting my Most Excellent Adventure!!! Bye for now.

  1. Have fun! I know you will.

  2. Have a great time, Dianne!

  3. Sounds like loads of fun, Dianne! Many years ago I flew up to Stony Rapids, then on to Fond du Lac in a tiny bush plane. Went on to the Athabasca Sand Dunes in motor boats. Every minute was high adventure. Watching mile after mile of untouched wilderness from the plane was awe inspiring.
