Goin' up the country

Crossed the border into Canada yesterday. Crossing guard didn't ask for my ID or birth certificate or anything. This is part of the reason I took the Alder Grove crossing instead of Peace Arch.

On the way up through Lynden, there was a guy holding a sign saying something like "jesus is the way." This, and the stink of cow manure, gives a person a good idea of the kind of town Lynden is.

I stopped at a bar and grill kind of place last night. Struck up a conversation with the bartender, and one of the first things he talks about how great his weed is, and whether I wanted to buy some. This gives you an idea of the kind of place "Van" is. It makes sense that's the nickname for this city, though I hadn't heard anyone call it that until then.

  • You made it! Sweet. The black hole of Lynden didn't suck you in.

    I think you left your RainX here. Also, if you want to take smaller pictures with the S3 IS, the manual will tell you how. You can change the dimensions, but leave the resolution on Superfine for the best quality.

    Keep on cruisin'!

  • What the hell is "w-3-3-d" anyway...sounds like R2D2's girlfriend. Did R2D2 have a sex? Shoot...the questions life brings us. So happy you made it out of the country and are striking up awesome conversation with people :) God start.
