Been back in the mother land for just over a week now and feelsgoodman

The drive fuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuucking sucked, to the fucking nines.

Snow storm rolled through Quebec so we left a day late, then we only made it to Edmundston on our first day of driving, should have only taken 5 hours or so to get there but it took 8...rain turned to freezing rain for 2 hours, the roads were insane-o bad, then turned to heavy snow covered roads as the edge of the storm was rolling through this area.

Just sketchy as fuck driving in general let alone with a 3000 lb trailer on the back of my truck. Once we made it into Quebec the next day the roads were pretty good, made it to North Bay, ON that day.

From North Bay onwards was probably just as bad if not worse than our first day, northern Ontario is hilly/mountain driving non stop, just heavy up and down steep declines which again with a trailer giving you extra weight flying down a 7 degree decline is pretty awesome. Toss in curves, truckers who don't give a fuck about you and will drive like maniacs up or downhill, needing to be in 4x4 most of the time and then some night time driving, it was fucked lol.

These were the roads for that day - https://i.imgur.com/XAk1RJm.jpg?1

We made it to Wawa and called it a night as night time driving made everything worse and if anything went wrong, you'd be fucked.

From Wawa it was bad for 1-2 hours up until around Thunder Bay and then the roads were great, actually dry and could actually do the speed limit or 10 over. Made it to Winnipeg that day.

Last day we thought we'd be in the clear as the roads were supposed to be good...que highway 1 being a parking lot for hours black ice around Portage la Prairie caused a ton of accidents, I counted 13 semi's in the ditches, all smashed up, loads everywhere, 1 trucks cab was like 50 feet ahead of the truck itself...I don't think the driver lived. We sat on highway 1 for 2 hours before they let us through. I have no clue how the roads got that bad, not sure why no one was out salting.

From there onwards it was pretty easy driving, flat, boring but welcomed as most of the trip was white knuckle driving.

In conclusion, never drive across Canada during winter.

Feels great to be back in Alberta though, only been a short time and somewhat surreal as we have to keep in mind we aren't going back to PEI. Just feels good to be back in civilization.

Have a house lined up here, just finalizing the financing/home inspection this week and should be good to go, just gotta wait til closing.

Glad to have you back! Shitty time of year to be moving though. That highway pic was very reminiscent of driving from Hinton to Grande Prairie through Grande Cache. With the same type of driver too. Hope the house works out for you! Whereabouts in Calgary are you?

There is a new Gluten Free brewery in Calgary now. I know this doesn't appeal because gluten free, but the beer is excellent. They have a nice little tap room in NE Calgary. It's called Heathen. It's all Viking based names of beer. Their sour is divine.

Also, depending on how you vote, the province is either in disarray or doing fantastic.

Thanks guys, very happy to be back...and will be staying here lol.

We bought in Chaparral so SE, just off 22x. Was ideally looking to move back to Shawnessy but couldn't find a home that ticked all the boxes for what we were looking for.

Gluten free beer eh? I'm not about GF at all but I do loves me beer so I'll check it out if I'm around or find it in store. It's actually nuts how many microbreweries have popped up since we moved east, like a crazy amount in less than 3 years.

Yeahhhhhh I read the posts on beyond.ca and the Calgary subreddit, I'm quite content to be back in the land of Conservatives. Apparently most folks can't comprehend a different elected party slashing the former parties policies and budgets haha.

PEI is extremely liberal and backwards, talking to people about politics I would just have to bite my tongue and scream in my head lol.

Economy is pretty blah here but that helped us out with buying a new home, and both the womans and my job are safe thankfully so we're just carrying on as normal.

Not much happening here. I was one of the lucky "Essential Workers" that got to keep working so that's a positive. My house is for sale, but so far no takers. 2 bedroom homes are not in high demand or in demand at all.

Damn. That sucks. Honestly though, I hope they don't find your truck so it gets payed out. My dad's truck got stolen and they found it, but it took forever for insurance to fix it and get it back to him. It still doesn't run the same, and it smells so bad in the cab.

that could be tough, all depends on what they appraise the truck for i guess eh. I dont think you could buy my truck with the options for less than 35 right now.

Well the truck is total loss. They offered me $29,000 for it, I think that considerably lower than market value. Thats what I would have go on trade in for christ sake. I think a fair price for the truck is around the 35 marks. They can still be found for 40.

Anyone have any experience with a total loss? Am I stuck taking what they're telling me I get? This is all new to me.

AHHAHAAHA! Well good for you dude, nice score! I talked with the adjuster on Friday. He was fairly certain that because of the amount of effort and research his colleagues had done that 29k was a reasonable price. I started mentioning Kelly Blue Book and the guy says "We dont like to use KBB because who know when that price was updated. We like to use something more current, like Auto-Trader. He then offers to look it up with me over the phone, both of us have the web page open. 1st price he comes up with "it say your truck is worth 30-38... an average of 34" Yeah dude 5k more than you've offered me. Oh uh.... well you know the price you bought it for is part of the equation. How the hell does the price I paid matter with what its worth today? Er...uuuhhh.. yeah I can see they've got some of the wrong options here, I'm going to send it back for reappraisal.

Thats where I sit now. I'll take anything over 34, still owe 18 on the truck, paid 47 with interest, I've had 3 year.

Looking at replacing it with a Durango R/T, Cadillac XT-5 or something similar.

Eat a bag of dicks, just because I can drive a RWD sports car through a Calgary winter, doesnt mean I want to again

*Update* Insurance came back with a new offer of 38k and change, I accepted. With taxes and them buying out the rental brought me just over 40k all said and done.

still owe 18 on the truck bud. After the loan is paid off im hoping that ill have about 24k because I wont have to pay 2 more years of interest. Rav4 doesnt sound to bad actually, what I want to do though is buy a car hauler. Then 1. I have a way to move the firebird in the winter, 2. I wont need a storage locker any more and 3. If its large enough I can build myself a little work shop inside.

So now I'd like to have something able to tow in the 7000lbs range (car + trailer + other shit). Maybe if I can get myself into a vehicle that'll work for the next 5 years or so until I get a mortgage, plus the car carrier I think I'll be able to save enough monthly to finally do some wicked cool shit.
