I just noticed I haven't written in a while...well, just as a short update (more excessive info to come at some later point):
We got a nice car - a '92 VW Eurovan.
We hung out in Vancouver a bit.
We picked Mario up from the Airport and set out on our roadtrip.
We stopped in Summerland (a small town in the Okanagan) to get our car checked by a VW specialized mechanic.
We continued our trip, rode some ferries over lakes, chilled in some natural hot springs, stopped in Revelstoke.
Drove up Mount Revelstoke, continued on to Field (Yoho National Park). Did a 17 km hike.
Continued on to Calgary, ate a big burger there (I liked it, the others didn't - it didn't have any salad on it :D ).
Drove back to Banff. Been hanging out here since. Spent time in Hot Springs again, did another 15 km hike. Did laundry. Hung out in Starbucks a lot.
And all the people we meet and tell that we're headed up to Alaska/the arctic circle over Dempster Highway either say:
"Good for you!" or "At this time?" or "Are you crazy?" or "How many spare tires do you have for the Dempster Highway?" or... yeah you get the idea. I think it'll definately be an adventure, and if we make it up and back we will be quite awesome. Yes, quite awesome ;P
Anyway, that's it for this quick update.
