I feel your pain! I'm also a fair drive from the closest verifier and have no scheduled stops in Winnipeg this this summer (all my planes are flying out of T-bay this summer). bu tthen again, I'm going to be right in the middle of Hamilton in sept an dI'm planning on getting verified then.
Just talk to some reps, maybe meet half way, or plan a day trip for shopping (go check out some surplus stores in T.O or something).
Out of Sport. Have Fun!
