Agriculture and Oil Frontier Part 1

Posted Felipe's 2021 Adventure

There is a place in Saskatchewan where you can literally travel back in time. The border city of Lloydminster uses Alberta time, which places it one hour behind the rest of Saskatchewan. I will have to remember that perfect excuse when I'm late, "Sorry I was on Lloydminster time!".

First thing in the morning and with a whole hour of extra sleep, I thought I might squeeze in a visit to the Lashburn Centennial Museum. To my delight, Katy Berg answered my call and invited me for a tour.

Founded in 1903, Lashburn is located 35km east of Lloyd (as the locals call it), and 107km west of North Battleford on the Yellowhead Highway, next to the banks of the Battle River. You can experience all the history of the town in this museum, my favourite was the foldable bathtub! Now if only I could create a mini version that fits on my bicycle!!

During this visit I learned about the rich agriculture traditions and history in the area. Also, I got to learn about really signficiant sector of the Saskatchewan economy, innovations in the province's oil and gas industry.

To finish this adventure in true Felipe style, I was in the mood for a biy tasty meal. I headed over to Family Restaurant for a delicious Chinese meal with more dishes that I could count. It's good I fueled up because I'll need lots of energy for what's next on my agenda!
