June 12th – 16th Jeff: “You’re SO lying.” Dan: “Whatever. It’s not a lie if YOU believe it.” Jeff: “You can’t bullsh** a bullsh***er, Dan. That’s not how relationships, of any kind, work, unfortunately.” Dan: “I guess I’m just looking for love in all the wrong places.” – A portion of the ridiculous conversation that took place in a Mexican restaurant And as we looked up onto the horizon, Smithers BC beckoned us! What a busy week it was!
