Alister, Just use the full FB call, including the '26' bit - this will set you apart from your canadian counterpart.

which part you going to? I've been over twice! west coast, Vancouver and southern BC, also Alberta and Calagary,
VERY wierd driving through a TIME ZONE change! 100 metres up road your 7 hours behind, 100 metres the other way your 8 hours behind!

Remem there NOT Amercians! there Canadians!
they DONT like it!
PS watch out for the Bears! Im being serious!
have a GREAT time,
