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!!

    • Well picked up my BBQ sauce this weekend. Sure is good stuff! 13 bucks for a gallon jug!
    • We should have a holiday every month........   I mean a paid holiday....    lol
    • I doubt they make much difference in towing, and the actual research says that they don't, and may be worse.  Do a search for "frontal area" on your favorite search engine for an explanation.   I like the V front for the bathroom area.  It works out to be about the perfect amount of space.   
    • Haven't weighed it.     Catching tons of fish.  Just had an awesome weekend up on Mille Lacs.  Going back up this weekend.  Then it's off to Gull for the big tournament.  
    • Snowflake alert http://www.cnn.com/2017/01/16/politics/andrew-andy-puzder-labor-trump/index.html    
    • Adrian's is good or really any of them on that point is a safe bet.
    • First on CNN: Trump's Cabinet pick invested in company, then introduced a bill to help it   http://www.cnn.com/2017/01/16/politics/tom-price-bill-aiding-company/index.html   Draining the swamp indeed. 
    • No, it's bigger than that. That's not chicken feed Foghorn Leghorn.
    • I think it all depends on whether you are looking for at a 14' + 3' V or a true 17' box. On my house I put the door on one side of the V and stove and counter top on the other side. I would have lost a lot of room and at least one hole is it weren't for the V. 
    • What you obviously don't understand is deficits are not moderate.  Economic growth is much slower than the climb of the debt to GDP ratio.   https://fred.stlouisfed.org/series/GFDEGDQ188S   Also, several foreign countries have scaled back purchases of treasuries, increasing yields, and putting upward pressure on interest rates.  If interest rates rise, (as they naturally should) interest on the debt increases, and the effect would be to put even more pressure on trying to maintain a balanced budget.   Here's that pesky $9 trillion figure again - quoted from St. Louis Fed:   If the increase in yields is a result of the pullback, then foreign demand might be crucial in keeping a cap on borrowing costs. This implication is especially important if the U.S. national debt increases by $9 trillion over the next decade as projected.2
