      • Sorry I can't be any help. You probably live closer to Vancouver than I do! Canada is REALLY BIG! Sounds like a wonderful opportunity, though.

        Now if you ever want to come to beautiful central Ontario, I'm all over it !!

          another question......... what sort of temperatures should I expect in Alaska mid may, and America may/june ???
          Ohio in May is generally very nice, at least the 70s to 80s F, but I will warn you that I have suffered through more than a few Memorial Day weekends where the temps were in the 90s F, last year being an example. Memorial Day is the last Monday of May, a federal holiday, so no post offices or banks or government offices will be available, and school is closed. Just be prepared for anything from 65F to 95F and you will be good. Also know that many, many towns have parades, so that will disrupt traffic in the morning. Memorial Day is the remembrance of all military members who died while serving in any of the branches of the US armed forces.

          If you are alive and currently in the armed forces, you get Armed Forces Day, which is the third Saturday in May.

          If you have served in the armed forces in the past, you get Veterans Day, which is November 11.

          Flag Day is June 14th, but not one of the big everything-is-closed holidays. Some towns have parades, lots do not.

          • I am sure that if we come across a parade CC we will just go with the flow, and remember our own fallen soldiers.
            I need to do some adjustments with the temps. I am not sure what 65F to 95F would equate to...... looking up now

            thank you

                Back in my teens, I used to read a lot of science fiction and horror. One story (don't remember the title) was about a guy who was stranded and started eating his own body parts to stay alive. Gave me the willies for years. :O
                Joanie, is the title "Survivor Type" by Stephen King?? I absolutely loved that short story.

                  • Hi Graycat. I looked up that King story and it looks like it was published first in 1982 which would be after I (and dirt) had graduated high school. But I can't find the one I'm thinking of by searching key words.

                    LOL Gwamma. I loved his books when he first gained notoriety. Then (and I don't blame him for doing it), it seemed like he was writing a book every 15 minutes. Still, Carrie and The Shining (the Jack Nicholas version) were both terrific books and pretty well adapted to movies. Christine and Cujo were pretty good books, but the movies sucked.

                    • Gwamma - the May cruise in Alaska is a crap shoot. It could be 50F and rainy or 70F and sunny. We went a few years ago and had sun everyday, the very next week it was rainy and foggy everyday. You'll love the trip regardless, amazing country.

                      Indiana will be beautiful! I really love May, it should be 70s or higher most days. Beautiful spring weather, later in the month starts feeling more summery.

                      Give us a shout if you'll be anywhere near Indianapolis!

                        Stanley Park! Gastown. Get a day trip over to Victoria on Vancouver Island and enjoy sailing past the San Juan Islands....sigh. Capilano, which is on the way to Grouse Mountain.

                          I especially liked the part where he broke through the door with his nine iron.

                            • Probably different all over; in jersey the rule is to suspend your use of judgment and to wait sheepishly regardless of circumstances whenever one has the Stop sign arm out.

                              When I went to school we all had to walk to one of a few different bus stops dotting the neighborhood. Now around here they roll up to each individual door of the kids on it- you can get stuck for one for 30 minutes on a mile of road.
                              "Ah, those endless forests, and their horror-haunted gloom! For what eternities have I wandered through them, a timid, hunted creature, starting at the least sound, frightened of my own shadow, keyed-up, ever alert and vigilant, ready on the instant to dash away in mad flight for my life. For I was the prey of all manner of fierce life that dwelt in the forest, and it was in ecstasies of fear that I fled before the hunting monsters."
