Tour of RM of Fertile Belt

 

Things to bring:

 1. A vehicle 

It could be a really long walk.

We will each be taking our own vehicles or you can carpool with people you know from your area. I will let you arrange that on your own. Then, if you can only join us for part of the day, you can leave when you need to. 

2. Bag lunch and water to drink.

We aren't sure where we will be around lunchtime. This way, we can stop and eat when we get to that time.

3. Lawn Chairs

So you can sit down while you are eating, or you can also just sit and eat in your vehicle.

4. Hat, sun tan lotion, umbrella and insect repellent.

This is Saskatchewan where the weather can change at the drop of a hat and the mosquitos have landing lights!

5. Appropriate footwear.

Since we aren't sure what the cemetery conditions will be like, if they are muddy or dry.

6. Cameras

In case you are interested in taking photos.

7. Epipen (if you are someone who needs one)

In case we encounter wasps. 

There are a few washrooms along the way.
