After 3 very large pints of a tasty yaletown ale and sleeping like logs again last night, our mission today was to buy a car and get insurance.
We hired a car from Alamo, walked about four km's to pick it up (much to cams dismay) and headed to Richmond's Vancouver Auto Liquidation Centre. 
We arrived at about midday and after meeting dodgy Scott, who must be the most uncoordinated, dippy used car sales man around (we were his first car sale after a week at work) we left at 5pm in complete darkness with insurance under our belt (not hard to get when going through a dodgy outfit like these guys) and a green dodge caraven aka people mover!!!!
It was a very stressful trip back to the city with AH and Cam following Jordan and I.  Me with no experience driving left hand drives on the left hand side of the road !  My AH even had a GPS in the truck with him but for some reason following me was a better idea...something about men and reading maps maybe or following directions from an electronic tracking device!!!!
Today we have totally blown budget and I am demanding a nice restaurant dinner tonight after the stress of today, but we have done it and taken that next huge step of our holiday...
