Asher did invite PH to come meet him face to face anytime, so one would assume he'd have no issues meeting someone from the armed forces face to face either. :beer:

I'll leave the exact details to you.

I've seen his pic, he's not exactly a combat soldier. He dinks with knobs and dials.

Nothing but combat soldiers in UK ground forces asher, there aren't the numbers to have specialists who don't fight. I was completely non combative in iraq, hence the body armour, PW, 120 rds 5.56, 4 Frag Grenades and the kevlar and ceramic body armour. I have to say the frag grenades make fantastic tools for tuning recievers. :hmm: :clueless: :lol:

Sounds to me like you can't hold your own if you need all that shit.

You're probably going to CFB Suffield?

Every year they send a bunch of British wankers to learn how it's really done from the Canadian soldiers.

It's standard issue. You get in trouble if you don't have it. Everyone has to be uniform and all that jazz.

DH, if you have the time and transportation, it is a great time of year to visit Banff and Lake Louise. They're in the mountains, whichbegin to rise up probably about 50 km west of Calgary. My memory is hazy, but I think Banff was about an hour and a half or two drive (maybe 100-130 km from Calgary?) and Lake Louis is about 45 minutes further. The scenery is stunning -- one of the most beautiful areas I've ever visited.

Also, if you're into fishing there is fantastic fishing throughout that area. The Bow River runs through Calgary and has some huge brown trout. There is also plenty of action on the other streams in the area.

Ah so that's why they're breaking up - DH is eloping to Canada with Asher...!

I second that! Lake Louise is awesome and Banff is a one of a kind park. The Yellowstone of Canada.

If it's the Yellowstone of Canada, surely that makes it one of two of a kind?

I would suggest you and Asher meet up..

I would suggest you and Zylka, but I don't think you know him.. (I think that Zylka returned from Toronto, but could be wrong)

if you drive a little bit, you could see NYE also.

Anyway, those are the three things I would probably do.

Jon

Top idea, although i don't know Zylka at all, NYE i have probably only seen a couple of posts from, and asher i would probably end up slamming repeatedly in the head with his own hair dressers car door.

Other than that, i totally agree with you.

yeah, that is why I ended it up with "those are the three things I could probably do"

I don't know much about Calgary other then the scenery appears real nice..

there is someone from Apolyton, Flubber? who also lives in the region..

JM

Asher
14-07-2005, 00:39:02
Flubber lives in Calgary, and so does Zylka.

NYE lives up in the hellhole of Edmonton.

You're not worthy to be in Calgary or the Canadian Rockies, so with any luck you'll be stuck at Wainwright, Alberta, where there's more STDs than people.

You'll most likely either be at Suffield or Cold Lake (army most likely Suffield). Too bad. Southern Alberta, including Banff, is all touristy and shit. Cold Lake, OTOH, that's Northern Alberta, and you start to see real people. It is very possible to fly into Calgary and be put on the road to anywhere since it's the regional hub.

If you feel like a drive, go up to Jasper and the surrounding area. Far fewer tourists.

If you pass through Edmonton, look me up, I'll buy you a pint.

Asher

I'll note that Calgary is the regional hub, despite until recently being the smaller city, because it is the better city.

I was in Jasper in... 1995 or so. Summer 1995. It's been a while but I remember all the goats and the crazy amounts of wild life they had there. It was a trip to go backpacking and hear wolves cry at night. We've shot all the wolves down south.

RedFred

That is why they cry.
