Damn I've never been good at wrapping up, ha.

I put this whole thing off for the last bit as I couldn't really do much but day-dream during that time.

The past few days I've been making a solid plan/checklist for what I can do from now until I leave.

if all goes well I'll let my employer know this week I'm leaving just before christmas. I'll sell what I can around christmas, get anything I need come boxing day and ship out mid January.

The only thing that's worrying me is transportation. I can't drive from where I am (relatively little experience with winter driving, I'd probably die going thru the rockies).

Right now I'm thinking a rental car for the first week or two and then buying a beater car once I get some kind of income. Money won't be an issue, but I want to spend as little as possible.

edit: gat dayum. Its like $600 to rent a car for 2weeks. I might as well just rent a van, sleep in the back and hope I dont freeze my nuts off.

Is there car2go in Edmonton? or any kind of similar rental car service?
