Day 1 of Revelstoke Adventure 

Feb 2nd 2012

Day 1 of Revelstoke Adventure

Leave thunder bay and take Air Canada jazz to get to Kamloops. Had to transfer flights in Edmonton for abit before flying to Kamloops. On arrivinal into Edmonton I made a mistake and instead of going to my next gate I exited the terminal and had to go into security again.

So I figured I have 2 hours so I can afford to kill the time. I get to the line. And its a big line that is going slow. So I became worried. Then this security guy tags me out of the line for secondary check. Then I had to get my hands screened for explosives. Then onto that I had to stand in the big xray machine again.

on route heading to REvy
All well.

Once back into the departure lounge I went for a sandwich. 

Finally get my flight and take the next Air Canada flight landing in Kamloops.

On arrival into Kamloops. Get a little scare. My bag does not arrive on the bag line. So I wait and I finally go to the counter to ask about my bag. After a few minutes my bag showed up finally. All well, close call.

Go to Budget rent a car and get my car that was reserved. It is just a economy car. More of a kia Rio, but it is transportation.

Here in Kamloops I have lots of time before getting to REvelstoke so I stop at a grocery story of Coopers,  a chain that is popular in BC.

Get some fruit and stuff. Also sign up for a discount card as well to save some $$$. Then off to the liquer store to buy some beer for the room

Finally back to the car and head out of Kamloops, I stop on the way drive thru of A and W for a Teen buger and a root beer and fries.

I do not eat Fast food much, but that went down really really well. Then back on route on HWY 1 to get to Revelstoke. Different route this year as I am driving from Kamloops. Some good scenic things on way to Revelstoke.

Listen to some old CDs I have of Crash Test Dummies on route.

Get into Revelstoke and check into same motel as last 2 years. The Swiss Chalet Motel and even get the same room. Room 106. A good mixture.

Then off to pick up my ski rental from Revelstoke Powder Rentals. From same guy named Arron as last 2 times. And get same skis as before.

Then back to Room and have some baloney sandwichs for a quick dinner as its been a long day and have not had good sleep in a long time. So go for a sleep tonight and wake up for a good ski in morning.

Onward to next blogs.
