Those are great! I really like the last three. Where did you go in B.C.? We are leaving in two weeks for Seattle ,Vancouver B.C. and Whistler. Any suggestions?

thanks canon guy, these were just the beginning of my trip, I will post more as soon as I can,,

we flew into Prince George, to meet my aunt,, then we went on a road trip for 9 days in the jeep,, we started by staying in Jasper for a nite, Revelstoke for a nite, Hope for a nite, then through Vancouver to the ferry,, on to Tofino for 2, then to Harrison Hot Springs for 2 then to Williams lake, then back to PG.

Whistler is a destination we want to hit on our next trip (yes we're planning already) but with the olympics coming up we avoided the construction,,

have a super time!! and let's see pics when you return!!

The mountains are awesome--especially with the fog. Flowers are pretty, too.

That sounds like it was a awesome trip,looking forward to more photos. That fog shot from the plane is fantastic. I never seem to get good photos on a flight.

We considered the road constuction being done on the highway up to Whistler but we were told they have not been working many Saturdays,which is the day we are driving up. I figure traffic back on a week day should not be too bad even with the construction.

thanks again folks,, I'll try to post more tonight, right now I'm sweating buckets, just got the lawn cut. hoy.

canon guy,, we hit some construction south of Prince george, but it was a Sunday, so can't say if they'll be working Saturday or not... I expect not. the construction we went through is probably part of the whole olympic thing,, they are "twinning" the road to Vancouver for the anticipation of heavy traffic.

good luck!!! and have a blast,, think of me while your up there,, and know that if I didn't have a job here, I'd be out there living!! it's a dream come true!!

    • My buddy Dan and I have been going to the same farm for 3 years now and the turkey hunting is almost unfair. We've never been skunked and the only time we haven't tagged out is the first year.    This year the bowhunting was tough. We were trying to be fancy and get things on film and it hurt us tremendously. So, naturally, we gave up on filming and went back to having fun.    We shot 4 turkeys, a tom and a jake each, all by fanning (reaping). The action was intense and super fun. Additionally, after having a set busted by a wandering daytime coyote, I lip squeaked her into to 20 yards and finished her off with the same treatment, a load of #6 to the face. My jake and the coyote are on cell phone video so I will see about sharing those.   My tom, came on the last day. He ran more than 200 yds just to confront that turkey fan. Due to a depression in the landscape, I had no idea where he would come up. He emerged at 10 FEET! and in a split second I shot him at 8FEET!! Thankfully I had the bead on his head or I would've likely missed. Nothing beats turkey hunting with your best buddy.    And I'm having a taxidermist friend of mine do a euro mount on the coyote skull. Unfortunately the hide was shedding terribly and was matted with mud. 
    • Merriam hybrid killed in Nebraska 5/4/17. 
    • Bonus points!  Well done Andy.  
    • Now I figured out how to add pictures. Time to submit for a score. 
    • I think they got greedy and it backfired. Lots of ads everywhere, requiring subscriptions for some forums. They split the boards up into two different websites (fishing MN and HSO), the boards went down for a while, and most the traffic got fed up it all and just moved on. I used to check this place daily, now maaaaybe once a week.
    • That would be my guess as well... If you run it "as is" you are going to wreck the motor due to the lean condition.
    • Man, this place used to be hopping with all kinds of posts and some great info being shared.  What happened?  This place is almost as dead as Aaron Hernandez.
    • How about the ones sold at fleet farm.  Full jacket military stuff probably not optimum for defense..so the normal stuff.
