Hello from the Canadian Rockies

My wife of 42 years and myself live in the Canadian Rocky Mountains, 16 km (10 mi) from Alberta and 55 miles (90 km) from Montana, in a small town called Sparwood. We enjoy trailering to parks, taking photos, hiking, and generally enjoying ourselves.

My other major (expensive) hobby is playing classical organ. I own a small 2 manual and pedal Johannus digital organ.

I have been a Pentaxian since 1960, when I bought a Pentax in a pawn shop in Vancouver, BC with a 55/2.2 lens. Added a 135/3.5 later, changed for a KX when the shutters wore out, bought an SF-1 because I wanted a winder for sports and could not afford an LX, bought an ME and FA 28-80 when my wife went biking with our daughter for 2 months in Europe. I bought the MZ-S and 24-90 when I lost the SF-1 to my wife. I guess I should never have left it at home while working in Chicago.

I was classed as a Die-Hard Pentaxian when I filled in the blanks on the web site.

Welcome to the board "Rocky". I'm sure you'll enjoy it here and you will find there are a few people from your area.

Perhaps a get-together one of these days!!!

Hi Canadian Rockies

We're sort of neighbors... living just down the coast a ways in Oregon. We love to visit BC. Welcome to the forum.
