Thread: OUR DEAR FRIEND HAS CANCER FCS

Then, we went back to the hotel for dinner, had a GREAT steak, and went to bed. The next day, we took off for Toronto, and had a 260 knot tail wind due to the jet stream at FL 400, and at one point, our ground speed was a blistering 600 knots! That's my fastest speed, ever.
I can still remember the view to the West, all of those snow capped mountains in the Rocky range. Wish I could have been there for the stampede!!!

Call me a wimp, but I'm glad it snowed on Sat. and not two days ago, when we dug in a geo loop.

I went there at 18 (the drinking age) and beer was .20/glass, I lived, loved and grew up at SAIT. My daughter now goes to UofC there and lives 2 blocks from where I did. They work like hell there, share and generally all have a good time.
I dated a girl from Brooks when I was there.....the bible belt.....damn....I learned a lotta new things.....
I also dated the daughter of the local penitentiary, that was intimidating....
Stampede is CRAZY.....women stripping right off in the bars, horses riding through bars.......you NEVER work a rooftop after 10am...yer too drunk to climb a ladder...."The quality you deserve is not expensive---it's priceless"

You would have good heat transfer with all your water!!!!! Do you ever chop 'em in after the ground is frozen???? One day we chopped through the frost for a header pit on horizontal bore job. That was the day the sun came out and melted the whole yard's worth of snow and guess where it ran???
Ice cold water, 3 feet of frost, no way to dig a drain. Had to bring a 4" pump and dig for pipes.

And on that day it very well may have been two inches.
