    What do you see when you look out front?

    by junkhead13 » Fri Jun 25, 2010 8:40 am

    As someone who has not yet had the chance to travel outside of the US (lack of vacation time and $$$ are my excuses), I find it fascinating that there will be metalheads from all over the globe on this cruise. I thought it would be interesting to see all the various places you guys call home. One way I thought that would be interesting is to just post a pic of what you see when you look out front (or back) of where you live.

    Here's mine. Just so happens that the only pictures I have looking from our front yard are from a space shuttle launch in early 2009. We live on the east coast of Florida about a hundred miles south of Cape Canaveral and have watched a few space shuttle launches from our front yard. The sonic booms when they land are always interesting... I always forget and think something has crashed into the house.

    Interesting sidenote, the yellow house in the center of the pictures was raided by the cops. Good old pot growhouse right across the street! :death:

    haha, sweet igloo looking wall you guys built there. Sometimes I miss the snow. I don't miss shoveling, warming up the car, and slipping all over the place though.

    Looks like a good party in the second one!

    Yeah that ice wall was there until april or so hahaha. I kind of hate winter here though.

    That was our university grad party.. we had something like 150 people in our 900 square foot (tiny..) house!

    The rocket launch in your picture is wicked by the way!

    It looked like you had gotten the hang of posting pics Debborah! I guess the problem is taking the pic and actually getting it off the camera before months have passed. That's the problem my girlfriend has! She has pics from more than a year ago that have yet to be put on the computer!

    Okay, I'm puttin' on my flame retardant suit now as I'm sure I'll get blasted for posting so many pics. I just went looking for one particular shot and couldn't find it but, during the search, stumbled on all kinds of pics I've taken outdoors over the years. So, like it or not, here's your tour of Vancouver and surrounding areas :twisted:

    ********************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************
    Now, actually just stepping out into my backyard doesn't provide much of a view. But here's one of some family and friends from the weekend I moved in here:

    Image

    ********************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************
    Walk a block or so and you start to see the mountains in the distance towards North Vancouver. That's my daughter and I. Shot taken near the Pacific Coliseum where the Canucks used to play and many concerts are still held.

    Image

    ********************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************
    Actually drive the 20 minutes or so over, up and into those mountains and ya get stuff like this:

    Image

    Image

    Image

    ********************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************

    On your way back down ya might stop near a creek like this. Typical camping view:

    Image

    Image

    ********************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************
    Go West instead of North from my place and you're heading downtown. This shot is from a buddy's place and is of the notorious Main & Hastings. One of the most cracked out neighbourhoods in Canada:

    Image

    ********************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************
    Another 5 minute drive from there and you'll arrive at 70KTons headquarters and be no more than a few minutes away from sights like these near English Bay:

    Image

    Image

    Image

    Image

    Image

    Image

    Image

    Image

    Image

    ********************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************
    Some of you may have heard of Stanley Park (Yes, named after same guy as the NHL's Stanley Cup - Lord Frederick Arthur Stanley or Lord Stanley of Preston). It's basically right on the edge of our downtown. Here's some shots from there:

    Image

    Image

    Image

    Image

    Image

    Image

    Image

    *******************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************
    Lastly, here's some random favourite outdoor shots of Vancouver, one of my daughter outside of the school she graduated from and one of one of my favourite places I ever lived (reminds me of Debb's place) :lol:

    Great pics. I love the mountain ones, especially that 3rd one down. Definitely looks like a killer place to go camping...

    Yeah, take a couple of Ireland. That's one of the places I want to go eventually, probably from my mom drilling the irish heritage on her side of the family into my head.

    The other is Peru (my dad's side).

    Gotta love being a mutt.

    On another note, how the hell do you delete a post? Not sure why my last comment posted twice.

    Agreed, I'd like to see lots of Ireland pics too!

    I don't think you can delete it once someone has replied below JH. Gotta catch those damn double posts right away. You can edit though and just change the text to say double post.

    Yeah it's pretty sweet out there! That's actually a wee bit closer to Rob's neck-of-the-woods (In BC).

    I generally only have time to spend a few weekends a year out there, but it's pretty sweet when I do!!

    In early December 2007, This happened right across the street of my apt complex (they were mexican) (cut and pasted from another board where I am known as Blizzard Beast)

    Blizzard Beast wrote:last night at around 7:30pm, the cops and ambulances and fire trucks were ablazed and I couldnt get back through to Admiralty after I ran to the video store in Mukilteo around 6:45. The road was closed. The sheriff had me drive around the long way to get home. But it happened on the street less than a 1/4 of a mile from where I live on the same street, in fact. :eek:

    LYNNWOOD, Wash. (AP) - One teenager is dead and two have been arrested following a fatal fight near Lynnwood.

    Snohomish County sheriff's deputies say an 18-year-old Snohomish-area man was assaulted Thursday evening by two other teens. The fighting reportedly began during an argument among several teenagers at an intersection in an unincorporated area near Lynnwood.

    Sheriff's spokeswoman Rebecca Hover says the man who was assaulted died late Thursday night at Harborview Medical Center in Seattle.

    Hover says a 14-year-old boy is believed to have hit the man over the head with a metal bar, and an 18-year-old man is believed to have stabbed him. Both have been arrested for investigation of second-degree murder.

    All three of the teenagers are believed to have known each other.

    Hey Chopper... I know nothing about macs but I just post my pics to www.photobucket.com and then link to threads. You can edit size and other features on the webiste so it's pretty easy and I'm confident it won't matter if it's pc or mac. GL
    So far at least, 2011, 2012 & 2015 were enough for me
