    Finished mid-day so went to gas station on way home as I had about 100 miles of range left and don't know when I'll next get a chance:
    45.9 / 5.4

    Well done, Gord! I've seen others who have taken less care.

    Finally, went over to a lake for a walk-about, with possibly fewer walkers. Saw a Bald Eagle carrying an 8 foot stick that it dropped on its nest. Don't know if eggs or its mate were in the nest. Later, went for a drive to a town, then back home. Traffic on the back-road was medium-light, but may have been heavier than "normal". Entry onto the highway was easy. On-coming traffic may have been lighter than normal.
