First don't get caught.
I wouldn't try to hit all the states in one year as there's not enough time and that would be something you'd regret.
If your coming into BC try to not miss Vancouver Island as there are some beautiful things to do and see here.
You wouldn't by any chance be a semi retired dentist with a wife who does DVD production eh?
If and when you get up here contact us and we'll try to be more specific in what we would recommend that you see and do.
Oh and watch out for our resident Sasquatch, they are big and hairy.
