Same great stories, new neighborhood

After running it by Ben, he's going to let us move this thread to Shiny Things so that the folks who don't browse RF: Canada can get in on the action.


Thanks, Ben!

Cool2 Yellowknife Ice Trucking has moved to Shiny Things

Yellowknife Ice Trucking has moved to the Shiny Things forum so that those who don't broswe the Regional Canada forum can get in on the action.


And if you like the Ice Trucking thread, take a look at some of the other threads in Shiny Things. You'll probably find some other stuff you like, too.

I don't know which way you are headed either Ben but if you are coming down Hwy 97 towards Prince George, make a detour off the highway and come into Mackenzie.

But...are you sort of waiting or sort of patient?
Waiting: yes
patient: no

because this thread has been a "page turner"

I've checked in and lurked in this thread as part of my daily "rounds"

glad to get the latest installment! I LOVE THIS THREAD.

Hey Sean, I don't think I'm going to be going that way but if I do you can be sure I'll make the right hander into Mackenzie. Thank you!

A change (of venue) is a good as a holiday. To paraphrase a phrase.

Shiny Things wasn't getting enough traffic, so they're looting Regionals for material.

I kind of like finding hidden jewels like this in the regionals.

There is more to this site than the basement.....

Me, too. I have to admit I sorta stumbled across it doing an odd search and then got hooked.

There are a few threads every year that make my "best ever" list and this is one of 'em. It's like diving into a great book with outstanding pictures.

Thank you Chanderjeet! As I've said before, any praise from you is considered very high praise indeed!
