A good restorative to hear of Bruce Special K Kay.

Eerily similar to me meeting Randy A on SSI.

And Jon Nelson was here, too.

Not too much of an update yet. We busted our asses cleaning up the debris of a couple of decades of renters, started the renovation process (not too jumbo -- the place is quite livable as is) and then bailed for Seattle in order to continue the renovation process there.

But, if you are interested, a couple of photos...

A bit of background first. Powell River is just 65 miles from Vancouver and 62 miles from Squamish. As the crow flies. But crows can fly over water and you can't, so, to get to Powell River from anywhere on the North American mainland requires two ferries. Which takes time, but which can also be time well spent. Peaceful. Great views. And...

...okay, here's a couple of photos of the return journey to Seattle last night:




Of course, ferry operators are no different than tools elsewhere...


But, while they might not let you climb on their boats, they can't stop you from climbing on things like this. See those three peaks in the middle distance? Click on the photo and blow it up. There is some granite there...

Directions on how to get there.

From Salt Spring Island? No way. You're stuck there.

However, if you can get someone to rescue you, and get you to either the mainland or Vancouver Island, you might have a chance.

It will not be easy, but you will be made welcome if you arrive.

ferry to Swartz Bay: $0.00

ferry to Tsawwassen: $0.00

Hey David, just finished the book. Do Alex and Linda make the drop? Inquiring minds want to know; you can't just leave us hanging! Pretty good, except the FCC is the Federal Communications Commission; I suspect you meant the FAA! Nice touches with location; it's obvious you know the locales, but, as I'm sure you know, it no longer takes 25 minutes to get from Seattle to Tacoma.

Looks like you chose a great place. Enjoy.
