Packing for British Columbia

We had planned to go to Egypt this October, but with the political turmoil going on over there, we thought it prudent to change directions.

"What about British Columbia?" I suggested.  "Wouldn't it be nice to feel that cool crisp Autumn air again?  Hike in rainforests.  Wear a jacket.  Summer is lasting way too long down here."

"Can we stalk a grizzley?"

"Um.  Sure."

So my travel buddy and I traded our miles to buy two tickets to Vancouver.  I checked my handy-dandy weather app this morning and it is raining up there nonstop for an entire week.   I added a poncho to my suitcase.

"I swear, I don't want to hear any complaining.  This was your idea!"

Mimi suggested I pack the camo jacket I bought at Capela's in Kansas City last March.  I've never worn it.  It will be perfect to wear while hiking in the Great Bear Rainforest.  (Under my poncho.) 

See you in a couple of weeks.  Cold and drenched and happy to be back.  But no complaints.  I promise.
