Default Heads up Challenger 2 on the move

I understand that a Challenger 2 is heading fro Suffield AB east to Becancourt PQ by truck currently.

Someone must see that as it passes

From what I understand this is the last Challenger 2 here in Canada and there may never be any more.

I had someone ask me today about this. He saw it at a truck stop in brandon yesterday. Mentioned it was a green and yellow tank.

He is military here at the base. We see enough green that it is not worth the pixels. But we are in a bit of a bottle neck transportation wise. At our point in the country, there are just two highways that head east/west. At portage la prairie, it turns to just one until you get to nipigon ontario where it splits back to two. If you sit on the transcanada highway between winnipeg to nipagon you will see it all.

Thanks for the flashback Rob. I loved "Paddle to the Sea" as a boy, and for some reason just remembered that the little handmade canoe's journey started at Lake Nipigon.
