Simon the Bermi

Simon is from BERMUDA!!  I tented with him. He was so crazy. He smelled so bad and everytime he unrolled I couldn't breathe.  I loved that kid so much.

Keewaydin Whistle Stop

When you finish the Little Jackfish at the train tracks there is no town. Ferland burned down at the beginning of the decade. Since there is no longer a phone, to catch the train to Allanwater Bridge, you must flag it down. We had two flags that consisted of yellow and red bandanas tied to two sticks. One person waited in the rain that morning at the trestle with the red flag. The rest of us were down the tracks about 300 yards, with the yellow flag and the gear, where we estimated the train would finally come to a stop. When it came to loading, we were efficient and got the job done in a matter of three minutes. It wasn't terribly frantic, but a serious situation that needed everybody's co-operation. 

Off we were with date cake baked the night before for breakfast. Cody (John's dog) inhaled my piece when my back was turned.
