Methinks we have stood on the same spot, though for me it was almost 7 years ago in this shot. We did stay here too when we skied the circuit.

I know a lot of folks with Clipper Prospectors, mostly the 17' one though. Here are a couple shots of my bothers and one of their kids in them, on the North Saskatchewan River.

My best wishes go out to your wife and you dealing with this. You seem to have a good positive attitude, a must for a good outcome.

Having walked that journey in recent times with some family members and friends, I wish you the very best and am sending good thoughts to you, your wife and family!

Time, money & health. Rarely do I have all three working for me. The job gets more demanding, time slips away, and when I can finally break free, health issues (mine and the family's) limit what I can do. But I cannot wait for retirement as I have at least 14 more years to work and I do not know what the future holds.

I used to feel guilty about having my 19 but not using it as often as I want. No more. I go when I can. And I cherish every trip, no matter how short.
