Mexican dental work

I have family members that go all the time. If you want the names of the clinics PM me.

They've all had good experiences.

harper to take control of the CBC!?!?

They're all crooks in my opinion. I voted for the conservatives because everyone else was worse IMO.

I'd rather they have a minority gov't so they at least have to try and play together. None of those shit heads in Ottawa should be allowed a majority.

I had an 08 Tundra up until last fall. I picked a F-150 w/ the EcoBoost motor. Better mileage, better torque range and whisper quiet.

The new GC's are nice but I wouldn't go back to a V8 after the twin turbo V6.

Working in the USA...

If you go expat make sure your repatriation is covered in your contract. Your move from the US wouldn't be that be that expensive; I know a few guys who got screwed working in the MER and Asia and had to pay there own way home.

There are a few lawyers in Calgary that specialize in this stuff. I can get names if you need them.

How long before one of these identity exposures results in a real life lynching?

I mean as in hung to death for real from a tree.

Would that actually be a be a bad thing? Hopefully this douchebag sees some punishment even if it is a back alley beating.

Canada Cup Finals and BC Cup #5: July 29-30

I rode there Friday. The park is actually pretty good; they could use a few more trails to keep it interesting for more than one day. This resort would be my go to resort if the bike park was a little better. The pool and water slides kept my kids interested the whole week and the other activities for the kids were awesome too.

I can understand how the restaurants are not doing so hot, it seemed like mostly families up there and like me I doubt they want to go out for dinner every night. They have a ton of potential for families with what they have. If they had some sort of meal packages available I'd definitely be more inclined to go out for meals more often.

hopefully nobody is planning to stay and ride on monday as the park is closed mon-wed this year.

Shit. Really? Guess I should have checked the site before booking.

We booked a condo there for the week after the Western Open. I was hoping to get some laps in the morning before taking the kids to the pool or lake.

I was getting good fore arm pump from Honey drop,Keener and Love that Route 66,finally manned up for the flow zone first time i hit the right line i went too deep on first booter and kakacked the second .That will never happen again those are butter.
Seen Silva up there filming ace hayden two days ago guess they left for air apprentice.

ROAD TRIP PLANNING, JASPER, KOOTENAYS, OSOYOOS.

There is a road from Kimberly over to Gray Creek that's cool, it saves you from going thru Cranbrook. Its about 80km on gravel. It was smooth when I did it a few years ago.

There is also a logging road from Rettalack to Sandon. We tried last summer but took a wrong turn, ended up on at an old mine and then drove up to the alpine before having to turn around. I would make sure you have a decent size truck if you want to tackle this road. I was in 4Lo a bunch.

The hwy thru Rock Creek is alright, so is the one thru Cherryville to Vernon.

If Arrow lake isn't too high there is an awesome user maintained camp site just south of the Shelter Bay Ferry called Eagle Bay.
