Beautiful Vancouver

I got some more photos from one of my friends of our Vancouver trip. These are the professional shots.

“You kids shouldn’t play so rough. Somebody’s gonna start cryin’.”

“Hang on lady. We going for a ride!”

“I’m rather embarrassed, General Solo, but it appears that you are to be the main course at a banquet in my honor.”

Okay I’ve run out of  movies that these pictures bring to mind.

The circus is in town! I want to see the elephants.

Doing a little bit of boozin’ with my buddies.

Geronimo! Into the cold Canadian waters.

Play hard. Work even harder.

Saturday we decided to go hiking in the foothills of the mountains to look for some waterfall, where you can dive into the water. I had no idea there would be almost twenty of us hiking.

Here are at the beginning of our 3 mile round trip hike.

We’re following the leader, the leader, the leader… Unfortunately the different leaders we had took us the wrong way twice. It turned out to be an extreme hike, lasting 4.5 hours.

We thought this helicopter was for us, but they were air lifting someone else off the trails.

Two of the jumpers calculating their jump. Yes, there is water down there.

Larry, being extreme. He better tuck those arms in before he slams into the water and bruises his arms.

The next day we really wanted to get out so, we invited some friends over. Tender Greens was closed so we went to the same pizza joint we always go to had a few slices.

We were having a good time having some drinks when I got a phone call from work. The office flooded.

This is after the water came down from half an inch in the entire office.

Paper towels that did their job. They absorbed water. Unfortunately there was a lot more water.

A whole mess of power strips that got messed up in the water. You can see one actually shorted and caught on fire, but fortunately there was water to put it out.

We spent all day using steam cleaners to suck the water out of the carpet. Finally the professionals came in with the big guns. We’ve still got a lot of water in the floors and walls, and we found out our neighbors got a lot of water through the wall we share.

We moved some of the employees out to one of the dryer rooms. It’s a LAN party!
