So last week I saw bears 5 times in 5days, once a lone Black bear, another time a lone grizzly, and the rest of the time it was mama Grizzly and her two cubs... such amazing animals, and pretty chilled out compared to all the nasty stories I'd heard, they didn't even seem to mind when me and Wade were this close to them - sooo cool! there are people who've lived here for 5 years and havn't seen a bear once so we're pretty lucky.

Since my last blog I've just pretty much been working and partying, and syching myself back up for the semi-retired life... it was a long weekend last weekend so me, Kim, Paul and Jake went on a roady up to Jasper. was great to get out and about, I havn't got nearly as many missions in as I'd hoped over the last few months so it was cool to see a bit more of Canada. Apparently the Queen was up there that weekend too but we didn't see her - gutted.

Got my last few hours of work to go tomorrow, then i fly out to Costa Rica the next morning with Kim. So over work boots now, and the early starts... cant wait to get back to the beach and walk barefoot again. see you there!!!

Well I thought I was going to have to just leave Pos-c on the side of the road somewhere but ended up selling it on the first day I advertized it so was pretty happy with that.
