Went great except for all 5 of us coming down with some cold of some sorts! Finally getting cold here! 15f and snowing. This will be only our third snow of the year so far which is really unusual! I get my baby back this morning and I can't wait! Unfortunately Santa decided I needed a new coat and some clothes for xmas instead of stuff for the truck so I am packing away the overtime (63 hours a week) so I can have some play money!
Right now we are making our plans for vacation this summer. Lookin like the family will be headed up during the month of August for 2 weeks. I'm gonna try to steal away for a long weekend around Memorial day for some fishing up there. The blacl flies and skeeters are just to bad for the kiddies that time of year!
Bout time you started getting some winter back there, thought we were getting it all here. Good to hear things got straightened out with your truck, did they reflash it for you, or are you going to do the SCT to it.
Christmas started out at 7 am with a fire truck at the door, then an ambulance at 7.15 for my daughter, she's 8 mo pregnant and started haveing severe pains, so 5 hrs in the hospital later everyone was back home and she is fine. Just the muscles not expanding the way they should for the baby, but everything is good now. Other than that it was great, not looking forward to going back to work, but you do what you gotta do.
things were good here, got lots of new stuff for my new house i bought.. got plasterd on new years and then moved in on jan 2nd... we have been getn crazy snow here.. prob like 6 feet in past 2 months... but its raining now..lolol that pretty much sums it up..hehe
:chicken: Congrats on the new house, what area did you buy in. Thats a lot of snow, did you move upcountry or something? Hope you got a big garage with the new house. Glad you had a good Christmas/Newyear, too bad it always seems so short eh, oh well ther's always another one comeing. read above and you will see how mine went, other than the problem with the daughter it was good. Got to go up to Lac Lahache to my moms place just before Christmas, it was a good trip, Put some pictures in my garage of the trip up.
Thought I'd say Hi!
Just joined the forum.

I went ocean fishing out of B.C.a long time ago, we stayed on Nootka Island, i think that is what it is called. i remember a park with a large wooden elk in front, i think it was called Strathcona park. any of this sound familiar?
Yup, Nootka bay, pretty cool area. When are you going back hahaha. We have some awesome country up here for the outdoorsman. Just about anything you can imagine. I have a few pics in my garage of the country up here you might enjoy.
yes it is beautiful, i miss being up there. fishing is great too. we caught so many fish, we filled 2 6'x3'x3' chest freezers after we ate fish everynight. i would love to go back, if i ever do ill be sure to look you up!!! maybe have a few beers and talk diesels!!!!
You bet Rob, love to meet you, any time your up here give a call.
Hey there CJ, glad you checked in to the cold side hahaha, sounds funny at this time of the year, but I hit a white out at the top of Rodgers Pass day before yesterday, and it was snowing all the way to Canmore, trucks in the ditch's, up on meridians, sliding of into the bush, It was an interesting trip to say the least hahaha.
