    So as to not pollute my trip report thread, I thought I'd take this to the PAWN. I'm not a noob. :D


    but... here goes anyways. We're from Canada. The shit your president is spewing is repulsive. We opted to spend our holiday elsewhere.

    Makes perfect sense.
    We boycotted canada trips years ago after 4 truck loads of guys on a Bromont run were turned around at border for petty shit.
    The annual whistler, bromont, hunting/fishing/sled trips all were allocated elsewhere.
    The worlds an awesome place, with plenty of trails. Thanks for the trip review, looked great.

    You realize less than 50% of the country voted for him and most rational people don't like him. Also, those people who voted for him have been here for years (50+ in most cases) so why the issue now?

    Just come to Cali you'll be safe, we're communists here just like you comrade!!

    The only embassy that ever discriminated against me and robbed me of my money was Canada in 2003.

    Because they are out in the open now? I'd like to go to Germany, I don't necessarily want to be traveling around downtown Berlin while books are being burned.

    I'm a fan of boycotts. Hit them where it hurts. Money may be the only thing that the modern GOP has any empathy towards.

    Fine by me, there's already too many people here. We've got folks literally breaking down the doors to get in.

    I resend my statement. Cali is horrible, go to South America to spend your rubles.

    oh for sure. that's what made it a tough decision. but in the end, the opportunity came up to go to Ecuador, with a local guide who shreds and was going to organize everything for us (itinerary, lodging, transportation, logistics). the combination of those two factors is what pushed us in that direction. In the end, dan-o said it best:

    Also, a boycot isn't really effective unless you let it be known you are boycotting. I figured it was worth putting it out there that Trump was a factor in our decision-making.

    resend? or rescind?
