So we went and were told they said all Idaho potatoes out of state...bummer!!


[huh]

I think she meant "sold".

So you can't find Idaho potatoes in Idaho.
That's would be like not being able to find maple sirop in Quebec.

See you are just like me....you can decipher my babble [B-o] 8O

I haven't had poutine in years.
I don't think that my digestive system could handle it anymore.

Hey C-Dot, where are the other photos?

I know I am totally stoked to see him skating Leeside and riding my Coaster

I had some yeeeears ago and I still don't think all off it is out of my system....and I don't mean cholesterol and triglycerides either. Only a good scraping of the colon could get it all.

Day 4- Seattle/Vancouver :D

Image
After yet another hellish drive through the night we got to Wild Waves park.

Image
For it being a sold property of "Six Flags" there water park looked very nice.

Image
One of the coolest waterslides I have ever seen.

Image

Image
Indeed

Image
wow....havent been on one of these before :lol:

Image
A wooden coaster made by S&S Mfg.

Image

Image

Image
looks...eh...decent

Image

Image

Image

Image
This is actually very fun, since every other one I have seen is usually up "up-charge" attraction.

Image
Credit...

Image
I havent showered the last day, and it was hot....so I figured what the hell.

Image
Closed coaster...

Image
Not a big deal it was closed, i have been on 5 of the same clones before...nothing unique.

Image
Looks like I going to get wet...blessing or a burden...

Image
Only got my face and feet wet....not happy :lol:

Image
Back to "Wild Thing"

Image
It was my friends 500th different coaster, signage with picture is a must.

Image
Back to Timberhawk.

Image
The ride would be better if the hills were lower so it would have some airtime.

Image
First traffic of the trip, going into Seattle.

Image
Theres the space needle...although the CN tower is taller.

Image
They had a windstorm here. The last windstorm I rode gave me bruises from the fucking metal lap bar. This one wasn't too bad.

Image
This dive hurts a lot!

Image
Heres the little dipper under the needle...just rode on 2 days earlier in South Dakota.

Image

Image

Image
You can just hear the people screaming "oh my boobs" "oh my fucking god my legs"!!!

Image
Vallet parking is good if you want to pay $40 :lol:

Image
We left Seattle and we were on our way to Vancouver!

Image
There it is!

Image
Heres a drive by pic of Playland. The park closes in 1 hour....shit....

Image
First priority!

Image
It was a fun "Miller" coaster. Although there all the same.

Image
Oh yeah...the "coaster" :D

Image

Image
I see airtime!

Image
I love the single position lap bars!

Image
It was a great ride! Stand up airtime on every hill, smooth, and I loved the layout.

Image
Although, there aren't any good places to get a pic of the ride though.

Image

Image
I wanted to ride this just so I can say I rode the "death" coaster that was in the movie "final destination 3"

Image
Ive only been on one of these before, I forgot how fun the Vekoma corkscrews were.

Image

Image
The sun wasn't in the best spot though for pictures.

Image
Theres the coaster again...I wish we would have been able to get a second ride on it though.

Image

Image

Image

Image
I was so tempted to ride it because it looked like a good program, but at the time I though we would be able to ride the coaster again.

Image
I saw this and said "I must ride the breakdance"! If I wouldnt have ridden it, we would have been able to get on the coaster again.

Image
Denied a ride by 1 train :(

Image
So we rode this instead, it was ok. Although I prefer the drop modes.

Image

Image

Image

Image
Failed shot :(

Image

Image
My friend got pissed, we found the park on accident while turning around and I barely got 5 mins.

Image
I WILL come back sometime in the future, I feel like i missed out so much.

Image
So after throwing a bitch fit with my friend we were on the road to Calgary...and we needed to exchange our cash.

Image
Oh pretty :D

Image

Image
We though we found a hidden credit because "go bananas" is a chain around Chicago that usually has a kiddie coaster...this one was just a playground.

Image

Image
I forgot which town this is, but it in the mountains off Hwy 1

Next update: Canadian Rockies, Calgary, Edmonton.

You ever think of studying engineering in university, allowing you to actually design real coasters?

The "Oh pretty" shot is Mt Baker, the flag looks to be in Hope, and the night shots were probably Kamloops.

I wanted to when I was a kid but I learned that there isnt a market for it. There are only a few companies out there and each company only has a few people behind the design. I would rather work in marketing for parks or ride company and produce 3D animations, videos, photos, and design layouts.

I do design on the side as a hobby though.

Image

Its something I do here and there. If anyone is interested I can set you up with the program I use.

We stopped at a Petro Canada there really late and had to use the window to get a soda. Well I had to call it "pop" so the clerk knew what I was talking about :lol:

How did you get to Kamloops, the Coquihalla Highway or the Fraser Canyon route?

I thought it was while we were on Hwy 1/ Hwy 16. I really don't remember. We just followed whatever the GPS told us to do.

If you did Hwy 1 to Kamloops it would be the Fraser Canyon, hope you managed that in the daylight, great scenery, going thru Kamloops in the dark was an added bonus.... :)

Yeah we went through it during the night. If I ever do that similar trip again, I am not going to focus on the theme parks. I mean, I will still probaly stop at some but not all. I just feel like I missed out on so much. If we weren't on such a time constant I would have loved to stop every once in a while and just look at some of the scenery.

One of the reasons why I kept getting pissed at my friend. He wanted to get back a day earlier and he didnt plan ANY time for anything but the parks. Everytime I wanted to stop he would say "well its my car, I want to get to the next park, I don't want to spend money on another hotel".

It would be cool to do the same trip with someone else who isnt only about the parks. On ANY other trip I would have been focused on just the parks. But on this trip, it was almost impossible to.

The tunnel is what we call Leeside, in honour of Lee Matasi that was murdered and a huge supporter of good skate parks. You should do a skate tour....wherever we go we make sure there is a skate park close by. Great pics CD...Thanks for sharing. [B-o] :rock:
