No time for exploring the park today, we set off to Chris’ place downtown as soon as we got all set up. It took about 40 minutes. Rob and Angie were staying with Chris for the weekend. Angie was at a conference for a few days up at Whistler and Rob had gone with her—why not take advantage of free hotel and transportation? They had decided to stop over in Vancouver on their way home since it was our last weekend and there were a bunch meeting for drinks and dinner Saturday night. The main thing to get done this afternoon was to get the car transferred over to Chris and get insurance for him and cancel our insurance. We thought since we had our insurance with Coast Capital in Sidney that if we went to another Coast Capital Branch, it would be easy for us to cancel our insurance while Chris bought his. After checking on the internet for the nearest branch, we headed to the one on West Georgia only to find that one was not open Saturdays—the nearest open branch was in Yaletown so away we went. Once we found that branch, we learned that it did not sell insurance so onto another branch; this one on West Broadway. This was not going to be easy...we then learned that our car did not have the Air Care certification required by all vehicles in Vancouver. So the fellow gave us directions to the nearest Air Care Centre so we could get the test done. The test took all of 2 minutes and cost $45 but we now had the certificate in our hot little hands! Of course by that time, it was well after 3pm and all Coast Capital branches are closed. Okay, fine, we’ll just find any auto plan seller and get the car transferred over and get Chris set up...we’ll just have to cancel our Coast Capital portion later on sometime.
