To prepare for the Grand South Pacific Historical, Geological, Anthropological and Otherwise Informational Survey by a Canadian Adventure-ologist...tician and his Good Man Kyle I am embarking on a 3 to 4 day hunting trip into the nearby hills to test gear and kill an elk or whitetail deer for added provisions. This begins on the 17th. On the 20th my beautiful girlfriend, my brother and I shall head to the backwater post of "Edmonton" to pick up my loyal sidekick and mule Kyle. From there we will leave the lights of civilization further behind and arrive in the southern Alberta village the maps call "Calgary". I hope they have provisions here and. After a couple days of prep we will then go skiing in the rockie mountains for two days with a village known only as Sunshine as our base camp. The hunter in me hopes to bag a Rockie Mountain Self Righteous Stink Hippy. The following day we head back to "Edmonton" where the true beginning of the Grand South Pacific Historical, Geological, Anthropological and Otherwise Informational Survey by a Canadian Adventure-ologist...tician and his Good Man Kyle shall commence.
