    I've had this hankering to take a trip there for the past year or 2. Even got the wife half talked into it. :D

    I looks beautiful. They say there is no (govt) road there, but I guess there's ways of driving there. Be a nice Inagural trip for my K5 :eek1:

    Just wondering if anyone's been there and what they thought of it?

    That's a heck of a drive, you should stop and visit some of the Canucks while your up there. Looks like a great trip to me.

    Why don't I just come to canmore, well, for one, YOUR there, I certainly wouldn't want to bump into YOU. :rotfl: :rotfl:
    Second
    Population Density:
    Nunuvut: 0.0156/km²
    Canmore: 504.1/km²



    If there were a job for me in Canmore, I'd be there in a heartbeat, trust me.

    You don't need a job in Nunavut. You just have to give the half the meat of your kills to the local Inuit.

    I'd move there, but I don't think the wife would go for it. Just want to visit Nunavut.
    Canmore, I might be able to talk her into. :laugh:

    Alright Can-Can,
    so what's that Castle looking structure there? That looks like an expensive taxpayer project.

    Ahh...mostly all Canadian Forces jobs. They probably don't want Americans.

    My house is just outside the bottom-left corner of that pic.

    BTW, that is indeed the Banff Springs Hotel. I saw it with my own eyes just yesterday, and two days before that. Some people spend thousands of dollars to come to Canmore and Banff- I get paid to be here.......:D
