van city travels back in may

In may of this year we, mom and dad and i went to vancouver. We flew to clagary, we stayed there and ahd a tims coffe and stuff (i took out my camera and took a few photos of the gates outside woth westjet 737s taxiing along and then on to vancouver. During the taxi out to runway 34 i think there was an unusual a319 that not seen alot, it was the TCA a319 and it took off ahead of us at calgary and landed ahead of us at well you giessed it vancouver....and then we passed the air north 737-200 (havent seen those around for 8 yrs+)  Our plan was to go to whistler for the afternoon and maybe night. So we got the rental car (ford explorer or something) and drove north on the highway 99, and headed for whistler

on the way there we almost got on the ferry and told the guy we got on the wrong eit and it took us to the ferry and we asked what we do in such instances and he said just take a right where the cars are and keep going to the gate...gate opens and we are back on highway to whistler...so after 3.5 hours on a plane and a 2.5 hours flight to vancouver wchich ould have flown right over my old neck of the woods. After sitting for a while and not eating much more than lot of coke and pretzels our stomachs needed some more sustanance so we stopped at a town called horsehoe bay and almost got lost trying to find the town so we asked some stranger how to get into the town. and she said turn around  and go back to some street (we were off the highway at that point) and after we asked her for directions we asked if she was always from this area and she said ive been living here most of my life but i was born and raised in a small town called shakespeare ontario (my jaw nearly dropped)

so we went into the town of horshoe bay and  went and watched the ferries leave and come back and everyone was feeling hingry so we went to this place called C Lovers and its a fish and chip spot. we ate some fish and then heaed to the car and kept driving...we stopped at a place called shannon falls. stopped for a few minutes and then kept going and didnt stop again for another 2.5 hours.

Arrived in veeestler (strong german accent needed for that word). drove to ski hill to see what it was like , mom and dad was there in like 1972 or somthing like that. But i t was cool. skiers still on the hill. then headed back to the hotel and signed in and looked at the room and mom and dad  went down to get some liqour or wine etc...and i watched tv and wasnt really interested in going anywhere so i was a litte homesick and jetlagged so i sat down and watched some news...


net morning we had a plan to go to the ski hill and ride up chairlift for a tour of the ski lodge at the top, condiitons were favorable for skiing but not for walking up in jeans or ski pants and no hats or warm gloves (good thing that we had the cover of the charlift down...got to the top had some luch...

then headed back down the chairlift and back to the hotel...packed up and drove to our actual place or reason were here and got our bags out and walked to the room and then everything started to get amazing. Instead of getting all my stuff put away or unpacked was awatching all these planes fly over...

and then most of the week dad was away at his conference and i spent most of the days outside walking around the grounds and exploring while keeping my eyes into the sky for planes... i was watching the planes from the window, downstairs by the dragon and other places...had my radio and laptop and flightradar24. so i saw alot of alaska dh4, ACA a319's and md-11, etc etc...

lots of boats, lots of ducks and birds and plenty of chickien fingers at triple-os!!

at the casino i won 10 bucks but if you do the math it wasnt very much...put 5 in get 3 dollars back {2 out) put in a 10dollar bill and get 8 dollars (3 reall dollars)

I met a guy named randy who flies with this virtual buffalo airlines and met up with  him at java jacks and we had some coffe i offered him to buy him some coffe but he said no thanks and bought me and him so tea....(i do have to pay him back sometime). he met my mom and dad and then we took some photos and he left and we left on saturday and headed back to calgary and drove to canmore and stayed with my bro.

went for walks around canmore and banff  and then after the weekend was over we went to calgary airport and dropped the car off and since our flight didnt leave for a few hours we went into the molson brewhouse for lunch and watched some 737's and a319 (no wonder i fell in love with them)

and then we boarded for london and we came home and was different temperatures than it was in banff and all those days in van city...amen!!

next flight/trip to ottawa a few weeks ago!!

From Crazy Larry in Banff

Plan: To cycle across Canada with Goal Zero Power Solar Panel powering my laptop and phone (Windsor,Ontario > Banff,Alberta) like the movie Forest Gump Style allowing everyone to join in...visiting SkateBoard Parks along the way...talking in schools about making healthier decisions / smart food choices / why every choice counts in life / uplifting and full of humour and high energy - how Cancer can affect many family members and friends(the ups/downs) of Cancer including costs and NEW treatments available = making smarter choices than ever before.

This trip is allowing FULL disclosure of the entire trip via LIVE Web Streaming /GPS LIVE tracking. F.B messages/emails/blog updates/LIVE Video Footage at SkateBoard Parks.
Live Video's/pictures will be made by the kids at SkateBoard Parks for souvenirs of their fun efforts encouraging them to stay away from choosing drugs,drinking and making a difference in society will be and 'can be' the Hallmark of their ways!
NOT just wishing they come in 1st, 2nd,3rd.
Talks that we all can have fun staying healthy will be highlighted with some FUN music.

Meetings with town/city mayors, Fire Chiefs-firemen and women, Principals of schools, teachers, Police, RCMP will allow help me to bridge the gaps of kids/youth connecting with adults that we trust so blindly. Trusting that they will do deeds and doings that are honourable, sound in principle and morally right, and at least for the betterment of our health.
Folks and friends ~ I need to get ELLEN Degeneres TV Show plain and simple.

ELLEN needs to understand how many lives will changed!
I need lots of people to explain to her that with some High Energy Announcing abilities/positive talks about beating Cancer/Keeping kids-youth updated with current knowledge that there is 'much' that they can do as individuals in a forever changing world and with my Custom-made SHURE Axient Announcing System with Custom-made designed Speakers I can impact them even more!!!
Time to harness some goodness and bring out the STAR the lies in each one of us!
Mom's illness will not go unnoticed.
The event name: Today I Ride for You will be for ALL to ride for someone they love,care for,or has past on.
We 'Can' do this;if we come together to help each other.
*** For more information on how you can help Crazy Larry's Today I Ride for You please email him at www.crazylarry.ca
While visiting please feel free to write in what your thoughts are of encouragement towards this paradigm shift about to take place that includes 'you' as individual friends.
Together 'we' make a difference.
