Oh, the extravagantly powerful 4-pot. Lucky you. Maybe you need it on some of the hills though!

I've hiked a few of the local hills/mountains around Vancouver a bit too. The day hike up "the Chief" by Squamish is just spectacular. Majestic. The wet coast people are nice too, but nothing like the Newfoundlanders I met.

I feel the same about water. (Have family in T.Bay too.) I once went to land locked Raleigh, N.C., and felt a bit stir crazy (and thirsty ) the whole time I was there.
