I was born in Vancouver BC, but long ago chose to live in the Land of the Free. Beautiful country, great folks, but with completely bogus gun laws.

South Pender here lives in Van, he may be able to help you.

I'm 8 hours south now.....what's up?

When are you coming to Canada? This coming summer? I can drive down, pick you up and drive back up here, then circle over to Edmonschuck and down to Calgary.
It's a thought. No one coming to BC should miss the drive up to Prince George - nor the drive from Van. over to Calgary.

See that, Kiwi? Like I said "great folks".

Thanks for stepping up, Daryl, maybe during gopher season?

Thumbs up

Always gophers in the summer. They are down after the 24th of August, though.
There are times when they aren't visible due to the hay as well. Hard to plan on that - all weather controlled. Best to come and we'll see what we can do. Being retired helps free up time. Fly Fishing is always good.
Early through mid August was planning on driving down to Montana/Idaho for a visit.

Kiwishooter, I live in Vancouver. However, I do spend time on South Pender Island off the coast.

Wow, way to step up Daryl! Take him up on his offer. That would be a good trip.

Me I am 8 hours north of Calgary. Best time for gophers in S. Alberta would be May/early June however there is more to a visit here then just gophers. BC in the summer time is beautiful. Only problem is there are too many things to see and do.

I've been to Vancover (Can Car) several times. Beautiful drive.
Got to Calagry once on the way to Edmonton. shot down and had to
pick up a load there back to Gillette Whyhoming.

One hell of a wheat field!! Middle of MT up, only one hill down and back up crossing a buried river in 700 miles.
Sure wish I could have gone all the way up. Never got back.

I have a contact in Lethbridge if you'd want to connect kiwi.

Sounds like a great offer from Daryl.
