    Beautiful pics, Cathy.

    From all I've heard and read, when Yellowstone finally goes it will have truly major global consequences.

    I don't know Washington state that well, but having lived in Oregon for some years I can certainly sing the praises of that state. Beautiful, diverse place and some neat people. A lot of people don't know that much of the eastern part of the state is either rather arid or even desert like with its know grandeur. I sure enjoyed the photos Cathy! Next trip see if you can take the time to see the Oregon coast or Crater Lake. Well worth visiting. AL

    Wow, this could become a favorite customer just for the scenery alone! If you're going to leave Florida in the Winter this is a nice consolation prize! - martha

    As long as you bring Tim Tam and take care of our two puppies while you are here, you do not have to pay anything.

    By the way, I do not drive over there, though. ME and the nature thingy do not go really together.

    You need to come to Pacific NW in spring or summer. It's beautiful.

    I'm from Florida, Naoki. Anything below forty is FREEZING to me. The last thing on my mind was ice cream

    This is a great customer. I'm not your normal sales person. They become like family to me. The folks up in the PNW (and I have about 20 locations) are the best people I deal with. Now Steve...he tries to be the "hard sale" type. He is a few years older then my son and has lots to learn about life. So I have no problems yelling at him. I always hug my customers. It is genuine and just a real me thing. At the end of the the three day meeting I saw him giving someone a hug. I asked him..have you ever hugged a customer before? He said, no, never but I think I've been missing out. I said Ah, yes, Grasshopper. You have much to learn yet.
    He is a pain in my rear! His wife and I are always giving him the biz, double timing him But a sweet guy and terribly funny.

Then, between the two, about 25mins south west, is Mt Kakepuku, a small cone. If you then travel about 40mins west to the coast, Mt Kariori dominates the horizon, and its visible from Hamilton too, just the top. It is about as high as Pirongia is. An hour north is a huge volcanic field, also known as Auckland City. Great place for the country's largest city isnt it?
    Jordy, I haven't had time to read all that you listed. As soon as I do we will discuss! Probably this weekend.
