OCTOBERFAST 2010

Post by bertvorgon » 12 Sep 2010 09:17

So, here it is again, time to plan for Octoberfast.
I am entertaining that we drop across the Border this year, and drive up to Artist's Point at MNT. BAKER. The view up there is spectacular, a cool road to drive up on. We would do our usual start at the plant for some, then meet up at the COSTCO lot at Abbotsford, then cross at Sumas. If we really try for a early start, the Border should be fine. Then, for me, I would come back at the Aldergrove crossing, do Zero Ave back to 99, and home. It takes approx 2.5 hours to get to Baker as a straight drive. By the time we meet up, fart around, that should put us up top by mid morning, have a picnic style brunch/lunch, then head back. As long as the Border is not too bad, we should be back in late afternoon.

PASSPORTS or other accepted ID is mandatory for crossing the Border now.

I will check into seeing whether there is any food service up there in the summer.

also, maybe we can get some of our American compatriates to join us.

So, trying to get a feel now for the Thanksgiving weekend, October 9 or 10, as to who this would work for, or the weekend after, October 16 or 17, all weather dependent of course.

I'm up for either weekend so far, but, I'm suspecting that Thanksgiving weekend is going to busy for most folks ...

We've done the thanksgiving weekend before - it works for me.
My vote is the Saturday in either case.

Part of me says we should grab whatever good day we get...the weather sure has turned bad quickly this year, so far, I have had my furnace on already!




Hope you enjoy this humour from DownUnder



It was April and the Aboriginals in a remote part of Northern Australia asked their new elder if the coming winter was going to be cold or mild.
Since he was an elder in a modern community he had never been taught the old secrets. When he looked at the sky he couldn't tell what the winter was going to be like.
Nevertheless, to be on the safe side, he told his tribe that the winter was indeed going to be cold and that the members of the tribe should collect firewood to be prepared.
But being a practical leader, after several days he had an idea.
He walked out to the telephone booth on the highway, called the Bureau of Meteorology and asked, 'Is the coming winter in this area going to be cold?'
The meteorologist responded, 'It looks like this winter is going to be quite cold..'
So the elder went back to his people and told them to collect even more wood in order to be prepared.
A week later he called the Bureau of Meteorology again. 'Does it still look like it is going to be a very cold winter?'
The meteorologist again replied, 'Yes, it's going to be a very cold winter.'
The elder again went back to his community and ordered them to collect every scrap of firewood they could find.
Two weeks later the elder called the Bureau again. 'Are you absolutely sure that the winter is going to be very cold?' he asked.
'Absolutely,' the man replied. 'It's looking more and more like it is going to be one of the coldest winters ever.'
'How can you be so sure?' the elder asked.
The weatherman replied, 'Our satellites have reported that the Aboriginals in the north are collecting firewood like crazy, and that's always a sure sign.'
