A year and a half. Hmmm, I might have some free time by then to head south for a while.

The infamous Campsite #1 or Alternate 1 is open whenever you want it. Given the cost of its use, it really doesn’t matter where the $C is in relation to the $US other than the cost of fuel to get here. T-shirt weather here today!

That site is on my mind for sure, Carl. T-shirt weather here today too.

I will treat the Bloomberg forecast like a weather forecast. The further out the meteorologists guess, the less accurate they become.

I'll take the over on $.84 - commodities are exploding and Canada is very much favored by rising commodity prices. The rate right now is .79 and it was .74-.75 2nd quarter 2019 when I checked it daily to see when to send in money for a new '21. Ended up buying used.

I still look at the Canadian exchange rate daily but just for curiosity.

BTW, I'm generally wrong.
