This shout out goes to you. I've been reading some interesting stuff lately about Icelanders mulling the possibility of using the Canuck buck as it's currency. Not a bad idea. Not sure if you go about it by referendum? But, years ago, I believe it was the 1970's, Canada had a chance of buying the Turks and Caicos (I'm fuzzy on the details) so we would have a place to "frolic in the sun" on our dime, instead of using the US $. Don't know who shot that idea down, but it would have been nice to go to some place warm and sunny in the winter on our dime. SO ICELAND think about it....our petro dollar has some legs in it (looks like the oilsands of Alberta gonna go through the Oklahoma pipeline to the refineries in the Gulf and exported) since our "heavier tar sands" suitable for diesel which is great for Central and South America and beyond. So welcome aboard if it ever goes through and you can plan a coast to coast cycling trip.
