Unremarkable House, Duane Barry, Laughing Buddha, Alien Train – DAY THREE Duchovniacs Field Trip Vancouver edition…

FIRST OF ALL, GUESS WHAT DAY IT IS…

Happy 10/13 Birthday to Chris Carter & Mulder

Today was a wild goose chase on some levels with some amazing pay offs around the outskirts of Vancouver and a few downtown. Of course we mostly stayed off Twitter today to support . Not sure if it did any good because I did not even look all day.

The day started with a drive east to the unremarkable house.

We tried to find a way in but NO TRESPASSING signs and some intense fencing and moist swamps warded most of us away and snapping photos from afar.

I mostly stayed in the car, getting out just long enough to continue this stupid series LOL

Two of us got a little closer

But apparently the TWO occupants don’t like unannounced visitors.

After a short coffee break we were off Riverview Hospital. Which we are renaming DUCHOVNIACS HEADQUARTERS. This place is great. You really feel the presence of something dirty, or perhaps demonic. Mostly just screaming for a wrecking ball, if not for the many TV/FILM crews filming.

NEXT STOP – Lake Okobogee – Actually spelled Okoboji AKA Buntzen Lake

Unfortunately the lake, in fact the entire park, was closed. Single tear from two mini vans with 13ppl combined. We all shared that same tear.

The actual lake is called Buntzen Lake which is in Port Moody, just a few kilometers off David Ave. Starting to sense a pattern.

So we get back on the road and headed to Grouse Mountain, where Duane Barry brought Scully and Mulder Almost fell off the Gondola.

Up top on the peak there were bears.

No Scully here. Just #bears

A post shared by Walt Frasier (@waltfrasier) on

Sorry, here are the real bears.

Grizzly bears say hello #bear411

They even put on a show. Although I am upset we missed Breakfast with the Grizzlys.

We.just missed the band @colin_c_lee but enjoyed the Grinder at play #bear411

A post shared by Walt Frasier (@waltfrasier) on

Did I mention there was snow up there. The bears are days away form Hibernation. I’m still days away from putting on long pants.

I want to ski

So, while freezing, I drove the crew back to check out the venue for tomorrow night.

Too soon #duchovniacs

At least this time camping out for a great spot, we will fit right in with all the locals sleeping on the streets nearby. (No pictures of homeless here, but this area is rough, and a bit depressed).

After dinner…

And the best company…

We made him laugh

Then it was off to the Ghost train.

Here is my view of the X-Files display.

MULDER… SCULLY… SKINNER… #thexfiles

A post shared by Walt Frasier (@waltfrasier) on

Unfortunately my light actually made it harder to film clearly due to extreme fog – which may or may not have been fake as we are not far form the mountains here in Stanley Park.

Spot on #impressions #thexfiles 😂#vancouver #scully #mulder #skinner 👽

A post shared by Laurice (@lauricefattal) on

PS Reason the laugh on Skinner is due to this gem from earlier and the fact we are all very giggly tired.

 

Trust Karen and our reactions this is a must do thing in Vancouver this month. The production value was great. With 15 X-PHILES in tow, this was the week’s highlight so far.

Of course it was so cold no one saw my shirt today.

Ready for another day in Vancouver BUT is #vancouver ready for me #duchovniacs #hohw #thexfiles

A post shared by Walt Frasier (@waltfrasier) on

By the end of the day we were a caravan of three mini vans and SUVs with 16 PHILES / DUCHOVNIACS enjoying a very full day of THE X-FILES and VANCOUVER tourist stops. Guess what tomorrow is!
