    You forget, Hyo lives in peaceful, law-abiding Canada.


    Oh, wait... you do too. :huh:


    Can't us poor, violence-ridden Americans have some fantasies? Like, how well-behaved and polite Canadians always are? Huh?

    Jayman also lives in peaceful, law-abiding Canada. Except Jayman lives in Winnipeg, which may eliminate the peaceful and law-abiding parts of it.

    Love seeing the pictures of you Daniel and your old man there Rene'.
    Thank you for sharing and from the look on the faces you all had a great old time. I hope to be getting to the USA in September/October next year so I might just drop in on a few of you too.

    OH, btw, love the Zap Zebra, I think that is the first time I have seen it and it really looks quite good. For some reason I thought it was more like a golf car with doors.

    I also enjoyed seeing the photos and reading the thread. I hadn't seen a Zap Zebra before.

    Daniel has the lithium battery pack in his Zap Zebra - and he has this piece of paper in the rear window that explains what an EV is, so that when people in parking lots are looking at it, they can get a bit of an education, too. :thumb:

    It's a cute car, and if we had off-street parking, I'd be looking at them more seriously for around-town driving.

    Awww... that just sucks, Mark.

    Not long after we got Rudy, I barely clipped a coyote - fortunately, the damage was so slight as to be unnoticeable (and I've covered the plastic crack with a Dalmatian spot...).

    It does make the heart sink, though. :(

    Yeah but, that's the side that meets the porcelain throne each morning and only lasts about that long. :nod:

    Daniel goes on MANY trips and has gone on at least two hiking trips this year that I'm aware of. I do happen to have some insider info on one of them.... and a picture or two...:) just preciously short on time these days.

    Ps. I didn't tell him I was going to post this. I hope he doesn't get mad.

    Awesome pic Octavia!

    Pictures like that I like to watermark with GPS Log/Lat coords so we can see with Google Earth/Maps (or use TinyUrl).

    About the pic, I see a healthy woman in her prime, and Daniel with a grin that says life can't be better than this !

    I wouldn't mind meeting Daniel, we'd probably have a hoot. For some reason, when he lived in ND we never hooked up
