    Enjoy the holiday.

    What are you doing to celebrate it? What's customary to do?

    Hope you all have a good day!

    I was only in Canada once for the celebration, it was a long time ago in Ft. McCleod, Alberta. Lots of mounties on horseback, candy floss, beer, dust and generally a good time for all.

    Due to the strike, Canada Day festivities in Toronto have been cancelled.

    As an American I think Canada is the cutest thing (jk), I'd love to move to Vancouver but I'm afraid I have nothing to contribute. Seriously though, I am jealous of the healthcare and other things you have over us.;) Have a great day!:)

    I hope you have a great Canada Day Duff-Man. Doing anything to mark the day?

    Perhaps you could share some Stomping Tom or Tragically Hip with your new friends.

    Happy Canada Day from sunny Los Angeles!

    I'm going to bbq some meat and vegetables, listen to some Sam Roberts Band, Joel Plaskett Emergency, and The New Pornographers, and hang a Canadian flag over my balcony in celebration.

    Oh yeah. Beer. And drink some beer.

    Isn't it fitting that the first day of NHL free agency is on the same day as Canada Day? :D

    I miss you T-Dot.....

    Happy for some, not for those of us working part time jobs in the Rideau Centre though!

    Have a great day all you Canucks on the forum!

    Then what was I doing today? :confused:




    Eat bagels, listen to alternative rock, apologise for no reason, eat doughnuts, stroke a beaver, smoke some meat, enjoy not being Americans, talk about portaging, and grow facial hair.

    I'll talk about portaging! Ever done the Dixon in Algonquin? That was a he'll of an experience. 5 km with a canoe on my back!

    Ah......…

    I don't remember, although if I did, I'm sure I'd remember!!

    The longest I normally do are like the 2 km ones, but difficulty really depends on whether there are hills involved. I think I've done a 3 km portage, but there was no massive incline, so it was only "very difficult" rather than "impossibly difficult". :p


    I just went on a hike through Killarney. In terms of horizontal distance, it wasn't much. However, Killarney is far worse than anything Algonquin could offer. :( It's all hills, and the entire thing is rock.

    Awesome. I haven't been to Kilarney, and now that I've moved to Cali, I doubt I'll ever make it there.

    I haven't been to Algonquin in years. I went on some amazing canoe trips through that park.

    There is some good hiking around here though. I'm thinking of taking a trip to Joshua Tree in the fall for a couple of days of hiking. Plus, there are a few places around LA (within 20 minutes from me) that are good for a couple of hours of hiking (Runyon Canyon, Temescal, Topanga).

    Duff-Man says...nothing special yesterday aside from a few messages to/from my ol' Canadian friends. It's a holiday weekend down here of course and we're heading up to southeast Utah and the Natural Bridges park, then over to Colorado and the Mesa Verde park - both excellent places for photography...I might pack a little Stompin' Tom cd for the drive - that'd be good...oh yeah!

    That's great. I went portaging in Algonquin 6 years ago, but I haven't been there since because this is actually the first time I've lived in Canada since then. ;) I may be moving out soon, so I'll have to enjoy Toronto for as long as I can while I'm still here. :)


    Oh, for Canada Day: We went to the free Constantines concert at the Harbourfront Centre, which took place at 9:30 PM. Before that, we were hanging out in the area, which has been completely re-done. It's quite a fantastic place to go now. :)
    We also went to the distillery district, where all the breweries and artists are. :) Most things were closed though, so we just ate food, walked around, sat outside at a patio bar beside the lake, and chatted a lot with my friends.
