Out of Grande Prairie!!

Had a good long day into Missoula.

We left at first light and the wind was picking up as we got ready. I filed to Springbank planning to decide there if I would continue on to Lethbridge without fueling and that's what we ended up doing.
I called Calgary and told them I'd be under their class C as I skirted Springbank, which was a mistake because I didn't have to and he spent about 30 minutes vectoring me around like a drunken sailor trying to catch the localizer.
The Lethbridge FBO was pretty cool and loaned us a computer to file with Customs. I asked about my planned route through a pass and they told me to just go over the top into Glacier so we did.

On into Glacier was nice and rugged.
