Going to Chilliwack II

Not sure what time we can get there Ches but are aiming at between 2:00 to 2:20ISH
@ Escape.

Planing to bring mah kamerah

I had 2 inches of snow on my truck this morning and had another coupla hours worth fall while I'z @ work today...

There's a coupla good chow down places in town. One Oriental Buffet and a more family style restaurant called 'O's!! Weird name but good food.

The 'Wack also has a Costco ifn you're lookin to stock up on growlies.
O'Conner R/V is also nearby if you need anything Reace doesn't seem to have on hand at the shop!

Arrived in Chilliwack on Friday evening. Stayed at a local Motel overnight. We did some local shopping and had a good look around town. We meet Reace and Tammy on Saturday for trailer pick up. Doug Mager and his wife Sandy also came to meet us. I was hoping to spend more time time with Doug and Sandy, but next time we will get together longer.
We are staying two nights here for a test run. We are at present time doing the water proof test (Raining real good). Will post some picturies later.

We had a great send off from factory. Great people.

Thanks Reace and Tammy and Doug and Sandy.
