Random Terrace Adventures

A journal entry from: Terrace, BC

Here is my info-mercial on random things to do in Terrace:

  1. Drink beers at Craigs house ? although Craig, who works for Hawkair and got me to Terrace in a fine aircraft, has not quite moved into his newly purchased house yet, he is always down to invite you over to his parents house to have beers and watch hockey or stand-up comedy.
  2. Walk Ferry Island ? Ferry Island is an island (really?) in the Skeena river that you can go to and walk around. All through the trees there are carvings of creepy old men and various forest creatures. They are all carved by some dude, and I met him.
  3. Hike Terrace Mountain ? it is a big hill that looks out onto the city and the Skina river, as well as the surrounding mountains. Most people prefer to hike during daylight hours, but we aren?t that normal. We decided at about 8:00 at night that we should try to get to the top before it got dark. As you see from the pictures, we just made it in time. Needless to say we got lost on the way down, and it was well after 10:30 by the time we found John?s car.
  4. Squirrel Hunting ? if you have a squirrel living in your attic that drives everyone nuts scratching around and making the dog bark at 5am (like Berta did), the logical thing to do in Terrace is to hunt the little bugger down with a BBgun. Those critters are fast and hard to hit, but John is a good marksman (cough cough?after using up half the can of pellets?.ahem)
  5. Learn to weld ? self explanatory
  6. Extreme paper airplane flying ? it?s the new sport up here, you build some paper airplanes and see how fast you can fly them with a little help of your automobile and a straight-stretch of road.

That?s all folks?
