We're here

Well we made it. We are in the process of unpacking a few boxes and moving the rest of them to the basement. Yes, a real basement, not a poop tank crawl space. We are going to go for a drive later to take some pictures, but we are more than impressed. We feel like we are back in civilization! There are street lights in this town! STREET LIGHTS PEOPLE! AND, a real set of train tracks! I saw a train out my window this morning. The store here is a NorthMart, not a Northern. It's a full fledge grocery store like the one you would see back home. It's amazing. This will be our goal type of store. And thankfully someone around here has wireless internet and that is what we are using for now.

Enjoy Hay River. I didn't get to spend much time there but I really liked it from what I did see of it and I've heard plenty of good things about the place.
