    (Hopefully someone hasn't said this, as I hate repeating stuff)

    "I'll just go and have one"..... 5 min later "one more won't hurt" this could just keep going

      "This will be a great adventure"

      "I want a second opinion."

      Not really a last word type of thing but a favorite about death:

          "What did that sign back there say?"

          "Follow me, men!"

            A long story ....

            My favs so far ... Ooops and Uh Oh.

            Similar to the sign one above ...

            "That didn't really say the road was closed, did it?"

            Based on a true story LOL.

            To set the scene:

            A few of us attended the ski show in Calgary (so we're talking Novemberish) to represent the Marmot Lodge, where I worked. Jasper being a small community, and the Ski Show a big deal, there are always lots of people that go from all the hotels, various tourist organizations and Marmot Basin (the ski hill) My assistant manager, me and some young kid that worked at Jasper Park Lodge drove back in the hotel's van. We were headed home to Jasper by way of the Banff-Jasper Highway, or Columbia Icefields Parkway as it is now known (Highway 93). Most of which is through the mountains, starting in Banff, then Lake Louise, then turn onto Highway 93 and into the fun stuff. Especially when it's late Sunday afternoon and snowing.

            As we passed the park gates Brian, who was driving, and I (in the co-pilot's seat) both kinda looked at each other and said "did that say the road was closed??"

            Once you go through the park gates, you have a short time to commit yourself to the trip, or turn around and go back to Calgary for the night. Next place to stop is Saskatchewan River Crossing (gas/restaurant/cabins) out in the middle of nowhere. At this point you can turn east and go to Red Deer via Rocky Mountain House, or keep going north and eventually get to Jasper. Red Deer is 1/2 way between Calgary and Edmonton. Safer drive in the winter but hours and hours longer. (3 1/2 Calgary to Edmonton, 4 Edmonton to Jasper)

            We decided take a chance that the highway between Saskatchewan River Crossing and Jasper isn't really closed and to continue on. Once we were on the Highway 93 the road was snow-covered. Could tell it was going to be a hairy ride because on the first curve we started to see cars in the ditch.

            So we get to Sask. River Crossing and sure enough, the gate is across the road so now we can either turn around and go back to Calgary, or go the long longggg longgg way home and go through Rocky to Red Deer, to Edmonton and then to Jasper. We decided to try the Rocky route. Few minutes down the road we see a sign that says "Robb". We kinda look at each again and say sure, let's do it. Robb is very close to Hinton, which is less than an hour from Jasper. Cuts off all those extra hours. Problem - it's a forestry road! At least it stopped snowing. Oh did I mention that it is pretty much dark by now? In the middle of the mountains. On a logging truck road. Did I mention that it was REALLY REALLY REALLLLLLY DARK! That was a white-knuckle ride like I've never experienced before or since, with a few heart-stopping incidents of coming too f'n close to slipping and sliding off the shoulder, with one particularly horrendous corner where not all the wheels were on the ground!

            The young kid slept through it all!

            We finally got home about 1am.

            So those were indeed, famous last words.
