Tomorrow, we are moving off our Vancouver Island base and out into the British Columbia and Alberta hinterland for a few days. It’s highly unlikely that I will have ANY form of connectivity, mainly by choice.

BC and Alberta are highly wired, and even the small town where I grew up has a number of high-speed options to choose from, and my wireless roaming on Rogers Wireless should be seamless.

It has been five years since I ventured beyond Vancouver Island, and I am expecting more than a few changes, and some pretty substantial non-changes (hard to re-configure Roger’s Pass and the Rocky Mountain / Columbia River Trench in even 5 years). The small town of Golden, BC has changed substantially since the last time I was there, thanks to the addition of the Kicking Horse Mountain Resort.
