    ReplyDelete
  44. So Neil, I was looking at your sponsor's tonight. I have a comment and a question.

    I was looking for CheeChas at Sobey's a couple of weeks ago and they were almost sold out. It appears the the non-runners have caught on.

    Is it possible to buy RoadID locally? I think I'm interested but I would like to see the real thing first.

    ReplyDelete
  45. Happy Dan: Chee Cha's are available at Superstore and Safeway too. They are made right here in Calgary! Cool huh!

    Road Id are not available locally, but I'd be happy to show you mine. (thats what she said) On second thought, just go ahead and order them for you and your lovely wife. It's a small price for a Huge level of peace of mind!
