once again, oktapodi is my co-pilot
Great googly-moogly, what a long day. Anytime we have to get up before the sun, it had better be for a good cause. Fortunately, so far British Columbia hasn't disappointed!
We're in BC for about a week, first to visit friends in Kamloops, and then to attend TBEX '11 in Vancouver. Even in our jetlagged condition, the 4.5-hour drive from Vancouver to our friends' farm was spectacular... a jaw-dropping, ear-popping, white-knuckled jaunt through many elevations and remarkable scenery. It reminded me of majestic mountain drives through Furlo Gorge in Le Marche, in the back of a pickup truck in the Guatemalan highlands, and the trek from Sacramento through Reno to Burning Man. This one definitely made it into the pantheon of greatest hits!
We arrived in Kamloops in desperate need of a shower, but psyched to catch up with our friends Justin & Andrea, whom we haven't seen in five years since they "bought the farm." (More on that later.) After a splendid feast at The Noble Pig, Kamloops' finest brewpub, we crashed, hard. We'll need our sleep for all the adventures to come!
