Always wanted to visit Vancouver, but never have.

If and when I go, I would probably go during the winter,
so I could go skiing as well.

Hope you have a good trip.

Yes, I recall you are a skier... not me, bum knees from college football days... it does look like a skier's paradise. We plan to drive the Sea to Sky (Canada Rt.99) from Vancouver to Whistler, and zipline up there. We wanted to go somewhere we hadn't been as yet... Florida Keys, Las Vegas to see Grand Canyon, Los Angeles, and Seattle were bandied about, but the connecting flights/and or mileage requirements didn't want to cooperate. A friend suggested Vancouver... looked into it and the place sure has a lot going for it. With the rate of exchange very much in USD favor, hotel and car rental rates are very affordable. Thanks for the well wishes...

You can easily score some weed there. Just look for Marc Emory's storefront, then look across the street, at the sizable park and look for the dealer selling to people in the park, very easy to spot. Price is a bit high for a 'dime' bag, but the weed is good and comes from the medicinal shop some blocks away, or as it's been stated, if you have a med card that dispensary will accept them from anywhere. Incidentally, there's a headshop/snackbar next door to Marc's place where everyone can toke up after 5pm. Smells like an Amsterdam coffeeshop on the street out front at 501pm each day=)

I fell off my bike while riding around Stanley park, and even so i keep good memories of Vancouver ;-)

It is a nice walkable city, with beautiful natural areas around; and yes, it stank of weed around the New Amsterdam Cafe.

We enjoyed a day trip to Whistler (we went in late summer). The road from Vancouver is quite scenic, and once there you can take a 'gondola' up the mountains and walk a bit around. When we went back, we had some drinks and a burger in a pub near the gondola, and they charged my credit card twice. I'm still waiting for a refund :-))

I would like to have had some more time to drive the Rockies, around Banf and Jasper.

Vancouver sounds like a terrific scene. I'm sure you could drop some cash there. Hotels have turned into a fucking rip off and annoyance.

There is also an OmniMax in Vancouver, Especially good when high.

http://www.scienceworld.ca/omnimax

The movie is displayed on the inside of a dome that you are in.
Look up, look behind you, left, right, it is all there.

Enjoy
