No, but it is on the most direct route from Calgary to Chilliwack. Fortunately for Jim, he just flew over that.

Have not set one up yet but our trailer will be completed on 12/22. We will start traveling around Jan. 4th or 5th. We will confirm a pickup date with ETI after New Years Day.

ETI (Chilliwack) sits in a valley between two magnificent mountain ranges. Think Glaser NSP. When I went to pickup Ten Forward on July 3, there were still bits of snow on those ranges. Leah... one of Reace's an Tammy's daughters was escorting me around (getting the 5th wheel hitch put in my truck!) and I asked her if snow was common during the winter months in Chilliwack, she said definitely NO seeing snow was "kinda cool." So now you know what I know and maybe you should Google "global warming" or at least watch the 2012 movie "The Day After Tomorrow."

Safe travels, hope you catch a break in the weather. It's an awful long drive from Texas.

You will likely be there earlier than our Jan 26 date, and ours will be somewhat weather dependent, though towing a trailer on winter roads is really not much of a bother for me.

Yes. "Global Warming" just means that the average temperature is slightly higher (one degree is a big change). As a result, local conditions may be warmer or colder, wetter or drier, or changed in any other way.

I have no idea if there is a real change in the climate of Chilliwack; a single year means nothing in this field.

Best not to carry snowballs in your pockets when proclaiming global warming is a hoax.

A single year may mean nothing in this field but climate change, like all change, always starts with 'Day One', or in this instance, 'Year One'.

Still at the airport, the fight is delayed. Never really took many photos, will leave that up to Escape. Just did the planning thing.

Don't "fight" your way back!! Easier to take a flight.
Anyway, have a safe trip home!!!! Very very very windy here today.

Did you all see the available completion dates on ETI's web?
Jim is really quiet. Did he and Santa team up? Stockings filled with Escapes?
