Not One to Duck
A friend who is not well, needs to move herself and her stuff back to Alberta, but she is too unwell to do so herself. So, Eric has volunteered to take three days off work and in order to spend three days to drive her across Canada. This is a mere, trifling distance of 3378km/2100miles, which Google indicates should take 44 hours of driving.
Unless something unforeseen occurs, he and his lead foot will make in fewer hours than that, but it is still a monumental trip. I know this because Cuppa and I drove this drive once upon a time. We took our sweet time driving out, but we did make it home in three long days.
Kudos to Eric for doing this for a friend and to Sha for actually suggesting that he do it in the first place. They are amazing people willing to do for others.
He should be on his way as you read this. Be safe Eric.
