Yup, with parents and siblings entered via the the Okanagon Valley, drove across the Cascades to Vancouver, down to Pt. Roberts, ferried to Vancouver Island and on to Anacortes back in the States. Another time my wife and I took the Chinook to Victoria for a week from Port Angeles and back. Also crossed over and back at Blain on a day trip as part of our summer vacation when I was a kid and we lived in eastern Washington. Great scenery, good people, and good eats. :happyelf:

You made me smile Grondy. For I remember once when a little child passing in the dead of night an all night restaurant in the middle of nowhere called simply "EATS.
I remember being terribly disappointed that we did not stop there. It sounded so what my high brow friends would have labelled ultra low class and embarrassing. But I always found that the people eating in side such establishments were simple down home folk who knew great food from the lady in the kitchen when they tasted it. :)

Terrace BC is roughly 400 miles NW of Vancouver and 60 miles east of Prince Rupert on the Trans-Canada Highway give or take a few furlongs. :elfbiggrin:

The only thing I think of when I hear British Columbria is the ole Lumberjack song by the Monty Python Crew...

I didn't want to be a barber anyway. I wanted to be... a lumberjack!
Leaping from tree to tree as they float down the mighty rivers of [u]British Columbia[/u]! The Fir! The Larch! The Redwood! The mighty Scots Pine!

The plucky little Aspen! The great limping rude tree of Nigeria!
The smell of fresh-cut timber! The crash of mighty trees!
With my best gal by my side, we'd sing, SING...

Oh, I'm a lumberjack, and I'm okay!
I sleep all night and I work all day.

Mounties : He's a lumberjack, and he's okay!
He sleeps all night and he works all day.

Lumberjack : I cut down trees, I eat my lunch,
I go to the lavatory.
On Wednesdays I go shoppin'
and have buttered scones for tea.

Mounties : He cuts down trees, he eats his lunch,
he goes to the lavatory.
On Wednesdays he goes shoppin'
and has buttered scones for tea.

All: He's a lumberjack, and he's okay.
He sleeps all night and he works all day!

Lumberjack : I cut down trees, I skip and jump,
I like to press wild flowers.
I put on women's clothing
and hang around in bars!

Mounties : He cuts down trees, he skips and jumps,
he likes to press wild flowers.
He puts on women's clothing
and hangs around in bars?!

All: ...He's a lumberjack, and he's okay!
He sleeps all night and he works all day!

Lumberjack : I cut down trees, I wear high heels,
suspenders and a bra!
I wish I'd been a girlie,
just like my dear papa!

Mounties : He cuts down trees, he wears... high heels?
Suspenders... and a bra?!
Wants to be a girlie?!
...Poofter! Bloody poofter!
One Mountie : Pinko commie fairy ******...

His Girl: Oh, Bevis! And I thought you were so RUGGED!!

Mounties : (suddenly) He's a lumberjack, and he's okay!
He sleeps all night and he works all day!
He's a lumberjack, and he's okaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay...
Sleeps all night and he works all day!


I always get a great laugh out of that sketch :wiggle::wiggle::wiggle::wiggle:

I did edit out the profanity :angel:
