We finally made it to Whitehorse! The last stretch was painful!

We are now over half way through our 4 day 9 hour Greyhound bus trip. We left Kitchener at 10:15pm on Tuesday night. Spent 11 hours in Winnipeg yesterday and got into Edmonton this afternoon around 4:30pm (we were supposed to be here at 1:10pm but left late).
Right now we're just hanging out near the (sketchy) greyhound station in Edmonton charging our computer and iPods. It is a looooong way to go on a bus, but there are surprisingly a lot of people doing long hauls like us. Every bus has been packed so far. I guess its a popular thing to do these days? It feels like time has stopped, we never know where we are or what time or day it is, we just keep moving. seeing lots of country. I saw a bear near Wawa and Andrew saw a moose and fox last night between Winnipeg and Edmonton somewhere. No flood damage to be seen in Edmonton, but some of the prairies were flooded. Not over the roads, but the ditches were full of water. We passed a fallen down robot telephone pole as we were driving into Edmonton. Apparently there were strong winds last night and tornado warnings near Edmonton, so we think that might be what knocked it down.
Anyways, tonight at one minute past midnight we depart for the non-stop drive from Edmonton to Whitehorse. Well, sometime after midnight anyway. None of our busses since Kitchener have been on time. Usually an hour or two late to depart. lots of stressed out people upset about their seats, or the bus being full, or the driver freaking out about time, lol. We're doing well though. Just going along, playing frisbee when we stop, walking around, and then sleeping, audio book and watching movies on the computer. Pretty chill.
Will update when we get there. Andrew says "word to your moms!".
