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!!

    • chicks maybe exploring what the beak is for
    •   You can also be a little creative with the leftover meat.  For example: The wife and I will whip up a spanish rice mixed in with the pork and make Enchiladas or heat the pork on the stove top, mix in some BBQ sauce and make quesadillas (the grandkids love them).   There's more to pulled pork than sandwiches.  
    • that is great!!!!   good for you guys!!!!
    • Your right rs_ld,  a full smoker is the way to go, leftovers can always be frozen and re heated..good eats.
    • 195 degrees on these butts. Like they say, if you are going to spend 9 hrs smoking 5# of meat, you just as well spend the same amount of time smoking 45#. The local grocery had these on sale so had a few friends take the offer to throw a roast on for them. Took two off early for slicing  Pulling the rest cost them each a beer though!
    • Very good stuff, kinda tasted like ribs with this recipe,  I'll keep at it til I find the right one!! Good luck moon lake!!
    • It will be interesting to see how the Warriors react in free agency.  Will they be able to keep the team together?  It seems like all these guys value winning above a paycheck so they might be willing to sign deals that will still allow the team flexibility to keep good role players around them.    
    • That's too bad.  The fish were ON FIRE up there.  I went out with my dad and uncle with our tiller walleye boat, and hardly a clue what we were doing, and we crushed them!  Ended up with 118 pounds of packaged salmon fillets.  I think I can honestly say it was the most fun fishing trip I've had in my life.  Here's my biggest of the trip, 25 pounds.    
    •   It's amazing to see a thoroughly talented team like Cleveland just get dissected like a back alley pick up team. I agree--GS will be THE team to beat for several more years if they keep their nucleus. I think we can make them sweat a little bit now, though, so that's pretty exciting for a change! 
    • dang I can see why anyone would slobber!!!!
