Thanks Larry! I am not going until mid August but I'm really looking forward to it!



MM..............one more thing to be aware of with out West.............. smiley-fire


The Fires out here are really,really bad..........the Interior of British Columbia is on FIRE and it's smokey in the South East.....Banff and surrounding areas are at a High Alert........it has been Hot,Dry and Windy for 2 weeks......a Perfect Storm for Forest Fires..........hopefully by August when you come out it will have cleared...........But we need rain real bad........just keep up to date with the Fires because they could get worse and effect your vacation.........the good news is NO ONE has died yet but 14 K people have been evacuated from their homes.

Thanks for the heads up! If there's a major update on that and you remember, please bring it up again here. ber

Like Rat said it's been a bit rainy over here in the Midwest. There was flooding not too far from me a couple weeks ago too.

It was great MM.  Thanks for asking.  I played 126 holes of golf in 10 days.  grin1

I will keep you updated for sure..........there was good news today and the 3 BIG Fires are 60% contained.

BUT they are still ferociously burning......

..over 2500 Hectares of Lumber and the Fires are "Crowning" Tree Top to Tree Top.......

....it is really scary how fast it  moves.....it can go 6 km/hr. and it builds it's own Vacuum and it's really noisy.

Speaking of Cheese Heads, is the origin of that at the Packers or does it have to do with something else in Wisconsin (other than the obvious.... which is that the State produces tons of cheese).

Great question Trumpet.............I wonder myself where did the name "Cheese Head" come from ???

I'm willing to bet that Jedi will know the answer ............lol

Remember pck from CBS days.........He was from Wisconsin and a great guy.........we had a bet in 2010 Olympics (Vancouver) ..........Mens Hockey Final-Canada vs USA........Womans Hockey Final-Canada vs USA........Canada won both Gold Medals and I won our bet..........he sent me out a package (box) of Wisconsin Cheese .....Old,Sharp,Curds,........Seriously....... it was the Best F-ing cheese I have eaten in my life.

Those fires sound scary Larry. Hopefully people are aware of them and avoid getting hurt.

YES they are real bad MM............and be aware of it when you come out to Banff........the Province of Alberta has issued an Air Quality Alert because of the Fires.........the Smoke is really bad in SW Alberta and difficult to breath for some folks.......hopefully it will be better by the time you come out here.

MM........Fire update

There is a bad fire burning in the Kootneys right now and PARTS of Banff National Park are closed due to Fires and really bad smoke.......Banff is NE and within 100 kms of the Fire.

CLOSED Areas


Whistling Valley Trail.

I sure hope that the Fires will NOT be an issue when you come out West.

Hey guys...sorry that I've been out of touch the last couple of months. But I've been dealing with major family medical issues.

I told you a few months back about my wife having cancer. We were trying chemotherapy and that didn't work. Then we moved on to an experimental treatment called immunotherapy and that didn't work. And she unfortunately lost her battle on June 18, 2017. My work has been extremely helpful and allowing me to be off work for the last 2 months  and today is my first day back in the grind. So I just wanted to drop a quick note to you guys and get you all back up to speed. The kids and I are trying to get back to as normal as we can be but it's going to take an enormous amount of strength to get through this. Thanks to all of you for any thoughts and prayers that you gave us during a very difficult time.

I'll try to stop in more often. Thanks again guys.

Kevin

Thanks Larry. I know deep in my heart that she is at peace and without pain, but not having her here anymore is the worst pain of all. There is a hole in my heart that will never be filled.
