In the morning I packed up the rest of my stuff and then ran over to where Lee was staying and had a chat about Canadian trails and gave him my Bear spray and Bear bangs as I wouldn't be able to take them home on the Plane with me.

Asides from occasionally hearing people moving around above me and the hot tub being noisy at night until I worked out how to turn it off, the Condo I had stayed at had been pretty good. The Condo had a Bedroom, bathroom , living / Dining / Kitchen area and a big Plasma TV, as well as a handy washing machine.

Packing SUV

I Packed my stuff up in the car - which was a quite a long walk to the underground car park from the Condo, and then headed for Vancouver. The traffic wasn't too bad, but did get quite heavy as I headed into the suberbs of Vancouver, lots of vehicles were heading towards Whistler with bikes on as I drove along.

When I got to vancouver I went to a Costco and bought a few things which Clare had asked for , I then killed time by going to a large chinese Mall , before heading to the airport where I parked in the short term car parking and checked in, before dropping my SUV off at the on airport car rental depot.

The check in was uneventful, I was offered an upgrade to business class if I took a later flight, but as I didn't want to wake Clare up in England and she was going to pick me up from Heathrow so I declined the offer. The flight back was turbulence free and I managed to get a bit of sleep on the way back.
