    Miss ShawtyMiss Shawty - On top of a waterproof bag, put it in something you can tie to the boat. If the boat flips or whatever, you dont want the now waterproof phone sinking to the bottom of the lake.

    Ouu! Good thinking! I've never really gone in boats before, it's a whole new experience for me. :D

    :hmpf: I've never "needed" a waterproof phone before, so that isn't a feature I look for when purchasing a new phone.

    Does anyone check their credit online? I never have, and I want to check it. Would online be a good way or should I make an appointment at the bank?

    Thanks RC :)

    I've run mine (and my wife's) two or three times in the last 10-12 years. It's interesting, and worth doing at least once (assuming you've used/had some credit over the years) just to make sure there isn't anything on there that shouldn't be.

    I've run mine through both Equifax and Transunion. They're the two big names, and they can be run online, but you're going to need to remember some stuff from your past to run the reports (past addresses, loan amounts, etc). I think it costs around $15 or $20 to run.

    Pelican makes some good little waterproof cases for your phone, wallet, etc. They float and are air tight.

    I second the Pelican cases. You can find them at MEC (and other places).

    That's not bad! It's always nice to know where your credit stands, and what comes up when you go to apply for another credit card or a loan of some sorts... don't want any surprises!

    If you haven't booked anything yet, you probably won't find anything

    I stayed in Brackley, there were little Air B&B cottages behind the hostel for about $125 a night.

    Sounds like you need a few more pregame drinks?

    I ran mine through a site via my RBC account - it was free. There was a link on the page to check your credit online.

    Went for a run for the first time in a month at lunch today. My legs are going to scream at me tonight.

    I've been in Grande Prairie for the last 2 weeks. The weather has been great, aside from the smoke coming from BC over the weekend. It wasn't too bad Saturday, just made the sky really hazy and overcast-y, but it was pretty bad on Sunday.
    I'm going to be driving from GP to Surrey, BC on Thursday, and flying out of Vancouver on Friday. I've never been to BC, so I'm kinda looking forward through a bit of sight-seeing through the mountains.

    Checking out whatever route my GPS and Google Maps give me, and go from there. Any suggestions?

    I've done 9-10 hour drives a few times before. I know that this will be a few more hours than that, but just knowing that Friday night I'll be home for the first time in 2.5 weeks is enough to keep me driving lol.

    Also, as long as I get to my hotel in Surrey early enough to get a decent sleep before flying the next morning, I'll be fine. I'm driving a work truck that they're going to need in BC, so I'm being paid by the hour to drive/sightsee :lol:

    Here's a tip: don't go crazy on the drinks. Stopping every hour and a half for a piss gets annoying after the third or fourth time.

    I've got a pretty stong bladder, so I don't plan on having to take too many pee breaks.

    Right now that is the safest route and a nice view, the only downside is all the Alberta drivers on Hwy 5.

    Yup. Decent drive with nice scenery. I've done Edmonton-Vancouver and Calgary-Vancouver a number of times. 12hrs in a day isn't all that bad if you're in the groove. If you don't like driving, I suspect it's no fun at all...

    If you're due for a snack, the Bear's Paw Bakery in Jasper has great coffee/pastries/etc. There also used to be a fantastic mom/pop diner called Harold's right on the TCH in Kamloops. The burgers were outstanding. Been at least seven or eight years since I've been through though, so things may have changed.

    I suspect you'll want to pull your shirt over your nose driving through Chilliwack this time of year. The barns/farms can be pretty ripe through there when conditions are right.
