Body Damage is Cool
This weekend was one I have been looking forward to , and also dreading for a long time .
My son Graduated in June , and he has decided to go to university in Edmonton . (excellent program there)
I should be VERY happy for him , and I am , but I'm also sad , as he is now a fair distance away , and I wont get to see him much .
I am defiantly going to have to occupy my mind with other things , and one of them being work . My "plan" was always to be a dad first , and business second .. still is , but now with my "empty nest" , it's time to focus on the business . With the earlier expansion last year , we are already out of room . Investors interested , we may be in for some awesome new services and exclusive parts .

anyway ... now on with the original title .

I had another Trekker back 1/2 sitting in Edmonton for years . I originally purchased the 3 Trekkers all in 1 package way back when . So Taking my son to Edmonton was a perfect time to pick up the other Trekker .

So I took some pics smile of some of our beautiful scenery

Mt Robson in the "rockies" (Tallest mountain in the Canadian rockies)

and at the park entrance

and we made it .. dropped my Boy off , unpacked , and I was back on the road in the morning .

Drove out to "Captain Morgans's" place , (Mod on the Trekker board)to pick up the Trekker

[Linked Image]

and homeward bound !!!

few hours later , I could see the mountians

up and over the mountians
and finally after 1918 KM's (1191 miles) home is in site

Thanks for the great pics Corey. I've always enjoyed driving that loop (back before passports became 'required' <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/rolleyes.gif" alt="" />)

Hopefully young son retains some sense from his Dad. <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif" alt="" />

Man, it's a shame that any human in this day and age should be forced to live or work in such an ugly place…

Lucky :P

Is it difficult to get a passport in the states?

It is if you owe back child support, as a few overseas businessmen found out when all that nonsense became mandatory. <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/shiner.gif" alt="" />

For me it's more a logistical PITA to find someone to take a photo and collect the paperwork.

My roomie also tells me the border crossing on the Canuck end of things isn't as friendly as it used to be either. I remember not having a hassle as well. Weird.

or if you have a criminal record ...

I have traveled quite extensivly throughout North America , and even now still cross over into the US almost monthly . never had any issues . passport lasts 5 years , and if you keep it up to date , you should have no problems

I actually never needed one until Homeland Insecurity came along. <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/rolleyes.gif" alt="" /> <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/evil.gif" alt="" /> Rolled thru Canada without issue.

Military passport expired light years ago.

well It's finally official . We have started the "build" of the moulds for the Trekkers .

as you may have already read , I drove to get our last and final trekker of the original 3 purchaced way back when .

into the shop today , we started the teardown and it went quick .. I had previously chopped off the canopy , as we already produce this part and didnt need it .
