In Vancouver, we were staying with Graham’s cousin Darrell and his wife Tamara. We stayed for five days and once again it was nice to be in one spot for a few days with no driving. We did a lot of visiting and touring around in those five days with "Elmira" friends that now live in Vancouver and of course ate too much. The relaxing part was great too. The Vancouver organization was great to us and Darrell, Graham, and I attended the game. We sat way, way high up this time in the media section. Heights are not my specialty, but the view was great and after a while, you don’t notice how high you actually are. The Canucks unfortunately went down to defeat late in the third period and ruined our perfect record. We are now 4 & 1 for the home team. The official countdown is now at 5 teams down and 25 to go.

Graham's Game Report

Vancouver vs Nashville
Oct. 31, 2006
GM Place

The Canucks are off to a great start this year playing the majority of their games on the road. Tonight they fell behind 2-0 early in the game and battled back to tie the game in the third only to give up a late goal and lose 3-2. Nashville has not lost since the game in Chicago on Oct. 12. Their pre-season picks as favourites by experts looks to be well deserved. A very tough team to play against. The Canucks got good leadership from Captain Markus Naslund and great goaltending from Roberto Luongo. The Canucks look play-off bound this year.

Great to see the Snyder clan on their adventure to
find the heart of the Canadian/U.S. dream. Ok, Ok
that may seem a little lofty. How about seeing some great hockey amd visiting friends you don't see often enough.

Fun to share a few dinners and hear about your travel adventures.

Good luck on your amazing trip.

I just heard about your tour! What a great idea.

I wish I had known about it when you were in Vancouver and I would have helped show you around etc. If your trip takes any unexpected turns back here, Jake should have my contact info.

Good luck the rest of the way.
