Look Oot Canada...

...here we come!

Tomorrow, we're going to rendezvous with the guy I work with who has a sweet-ass 44' sailboat. Each August, he takes it up to the North Channel, a series of rocky islands along northern Lake Huron. He's been doing this for 20-some years and knows all the little nooks (he's still working on the crannies). It's supposed to be beautiful and very remote. HERE is a photo site dedicated to the area if you're interested.

Sadly, we won't have the wit, wisdom, and mad mixology skillz of everyone's favorite maritime bartender, Ted Lange.

Tobermory's as close as I've come to the North Channel. Really gorgeous geography. Enjoy your time.

Why do I hear the Gilligan's Island theme song playing in the background?

Gopher is on the lido deck and he's not happy.

Sounds like a great trip, have fun.

I'm with Doc. Are you traveling with a millionaire and a movie star by any chance?

Have a great time!

bloody damnit, Ted's not there?? I guess you'll just have to stick with homemade hootch and 211... Pound back enuff stuff and you won't have to worry bout much o' anything.

Hey when you get back, can you shoot me that Bobby Darin song? I was unable to find it (I got everything else).

Just use the email on my profile.

Thanks, and hope you had a great time (as is required when drinking Molson).

This sounds like fun! Canada is always a hoot! Oot... Out... Nawhh, it's not going to work this time 'round. Needs more practice.

Make sure you get your "Canadian" down pat before you get there. They might recognize you as American and steal your circular sliced ham, call it bacon, and claim it as their own. In which case, you can steal their healthcare and claim it as your own.

Nice coming across your blog!

If you were a real patriot, you'd claim those islands for the US of A.
