    Hi JD,

    I'm in Kitimat, at the head of a 60 mile system of channels from open water a tad down the coast from Prince Rupert and 32 miles south of Terrace by road. I call it the little town that sucks that's perched on the edge of Paradise

    If you come this way let me know...maybe I could point you in the direction of some plum spots.

    That would be ever so cool. I'll stand the first pint!

    Won't be this year, we're doing a three month trip chasing (successfully, we hope) fall color from Montana/Wyoming southward to the Four Corners area.

    But in 2012 we'd love to get to Goldstream PP for the salmon run in late Oct. or early Nov.

    A past colleague of mine teaches in Kitimat but not sure if she is still there and a very good friend of mine lives there and raves on and on about the place. One day I'll get up there...

    Hi Evan!

    Todays tip...cut tennis balls in half then cut a hole in the middle to stuff onto the bottoms of your tripod legs. Put the concave side facing down. Now your tripod legs won't sink too low when working in really deep snow.

    Thank you, thank you so much. Please leave your gratuities in the bowl by the door on your way out

    Wicked ice cleats;

    Baby pig mat (also comes with a thermostatic control);

    If you do come up here, make sure you drive down the Skeena River to Prince Rupert. One of the most amazing drives on Earth.

    I don't play the piano, I don't have a beard and I listen to AC/DC in the darkroom. I have no hope as a photographer.

    I have always thought of it as a quaint little drinking town with a fishing problem
    One of these summers I have got to venture north and take a month or so cruising the inside passage. I just seem to get stuck in the Gulf Islands every summer and don't want to leave.
