Sunday Drive 60: Blackstrap Federal Riding

This is a short post, I wanted to get some pictures and content up while it's still almost-topical, before tomorrow's federal election.

Start km: 329392.3
End km: 329953.1
Driven: 560.8 km

Today I drove most of the perimeter of the Canadian federal electoral riding of Blackstrap, the riding I currently reside in, and the riding in which I will cast a vote tomorrow. I did not set out with any partisan agenda on this drive, I just wanted to see my neighbours, and see the places that will cast votes with me.

Here are a few pictures, I'll put together a more thorough description of today's adventure in a few days, when I'm not so tired.

How do you manage to clock up so many miles in one day?! I think you should rename your Sunday drive - how about "Sunday's trailer-spotting drive"? Because I really, really love the picture of the trailers... Trivia is me.

Dude, you need a hobby...gas is expensive.

I have a hobby: I take photographs and hide them away on my harddrive, never to be seen again.

Gas isn't *that* expensive, especially when one has so few other expenses.

Hannah, I'd written up a big comment about driving long distances, but blogger ate it.

The short answer is: at 100km/h an afternoon can cover vast areas. Owning an automobile really, really expands one's personally accessible space, even if one's personal space shrinks behind sound-proof glass.
