I'm pretty darn sure that anyone of you who have been around here for a while will have realised how much I love the PNW, even though I have never been there. There is simply something about the place that speaks to me. Australia has nothing quite like it although parts of Tasmania could be said to be similar but the closest place which really compares would be New Zealand.
Finding fellow rodents and their sympathisers is an easy task wherever one travels though one has to admit Nth America has some of cutest , but yep the Wombette can be more fun.
Nonetheless while she really liked Faster's pics I did hear a couple of 'damn that looks cold' comments.
At least she could see that occasionally it does stop raining.
Draft issues?!?!!? what are those?!?!!? There are places here that you can put your bow up to a cliff, and still have 200' below you! There are some issues here in this part of NA, but being as the area tween Vancouver Island on down to Puget Sound here in Washington was carved by glaciers that would upwards of 5500-6000' in depth, a 6.5' keel is nothing!. My next mid 30' boat if I find the one I like, will be in the 6.5-7' range. You can go aground in some area's, but generally speaking, depth is not an issue.
I think you would find plenty of moles, mountain beavers, a marmot or two or three around here that you could covort with, and be plenty happy. Altho the Mrs wombat is probably more phun!
