Win a $1,000 Old Strathcona Shopping Spree with ETS and Eddy

Monday November 17 , 2014

Hi guys! Eddy here. 

I have been learning how to blog this year, but it is hard because these 'keyboards' are really small and not made for paws. I told the Old Strathcona people that Yetis only type on 'snow- boards', but what they gave me was totally wrong. So I am learning. There may be some mistrakes.

m just writing to tell you that I had a blast in Old Strathcona last year and so I am coming back this year. Thing is, though, it's a REALLY long walk from the Rockies and my feet are pretty sore. I wanted to go to a day spa and relax but... you know how it is... there isn't a decent fur curler anywhere and people keep trying to take pictures of you.

So, to give my poor Yeti feet a rest, I decided that this year... I'm taking the bus. I'll be riding around on ETS for the Christmas season to get to all my Old Strath destinations. Shopping in the daytime, and then letting out my inner (or is it outer?) foodie in the nighttime (even we Yetis love good food). I know ETS will get me to where I want to go no matter what the weather and roads are like (Don't laugh... even Yetis find Edmonton cold).

Anyway, if you happen to spot me on the bus, feel free to take a picture of me. I don't normally do this sort of thing--It's kind of against the Yeti code--but the Old Strathcona Business Association said they would give me and one lucky photographer a $1,000 shopping spree in Old Strath.  But don't show your photo to anyone else, please! Just send it to the Old Strathcona Instagram account, and maybe you and I will end up shopping together.

You might want to keep an eye out for sleigh shuttles through Old Strathcona too.  I heard ETS was giving out some free winter swag to anyone who rides. I wish they were giving out food. Nobody seems to make snowcones here in the winter. What's a Yeti supposed to eat?

Anyway, Happy Holidays, and see you all soon (altho you mite not c me... look, lrning to txt already!)
