But Ged, you get to pass through our country speaking Canadian without so much as an "Eh?".

It's just not fair! :lol: Edited to add a smilie, so I don't seem like such a troll!

If you are not living on the edge, you are taking up too much space!

"Could do better if he tried!" Report card comments from most of my grade school teachers. Sadly, still true!

Gary,
Oh, I probably drop a few "eh's" here and there along the way.

It's a fair trade for the "Uh huh..." replies I get stateside to my "Thank You's"....instead of a normal "You are welcome" ...

It's kind of a guttural grunt....

P.S. Say hola to Bailey ;D

You should be mindful of all the brochures, tourist magazines and free maps that you will find everywhere and be open to changing the itinerary. Don't overlook popular places - they're popular for a reason. E.g., Moqui Cave is an interesting stop. You need a permit for the Wave. Paria Canyon is a great backpack - any overnights, or just day-hiking? I believe you need a permit for Paria now, but epic slots. If your vehicle can take some 4WD type terrain, you should drive to the end of Hole in the Rock Road and do the hike down to Lake Powell. Stop at the Visitor Center near Fruita for Capitol Reef/Waterpocket Fold, San Rafael Swell - a lifetime of hiking trails, canyons, pictographs. Green River is the gateway for river raft trips, or even 1/2 day float - a must-do. You've already seen Bryce NP? This is a huge area, and most summer tourists hit the major Natl Parks and easy access campgrounds. Know the BLM, federal lands where you can boondock (everywhere) to have a place to yourself.
