I certainly hope we are treated to pics and vids, especially encounter with hostile forces. Your Captain must have felt sorry for the Canucks and decided not to take out any Voodoos.

Now I lay me down to sleep.
With a bag of peanuts at my feet.
If I sould die before I wake,
Give them to my brother Jake.

Interestingly, there was a guy named "Shem McBride" going through the dumpster behind the Tim Horton's in Churchill. I double checked the name, and yes, the first name is just the same as one of the Three Stooges.

Somehow I felt that it fit.

I'm in Indiana and will fly home the day after tomorrow. It was an adventure getting out of Canada and back into the States. Canadian DefenCe Forces and the USAF were skirmishing along the border, using live ammo and live missiles. Our Calm Air turboprop flew right into the middle of all that. Fortunately, our pilot had flown missions in Gulf I, and he dodged all over and finally stuck a .22 pistol out the window and shot down a US F-35. The pilot ejected but I think he's gonna be in trouble. We landed safely in Winnypig after dancing all over the sky. Flying to Chi wasn't much of a problem except for that guy in the airport who asked me to deliver a package of muktuk to his sister at the O'Hare aerodrome. Customs didn't like the way it was leaking oily stuff and getting their nice floor dirty, so they took it away and ate it themselves. But we got back okay. Now I'm going to go to bed because I'm a tired little teddy bear.

I can't imagine being on a 29km long wave for over fours hours*. Gotta be in good shape for that. The river is "unsilting" faster than anyone had expected after the causeway gates were open. It would be gnarly to see hundreds of surfers riding much larger wave on a bore near a mile wide at one point but that depends on a lot of things, including the deforestation of the water supply grounds.

* I think that's what I heard one of the Californians say in a TV interview.

The Bore is a spit now but it has a new claim to fame. YT video link after the article.

Kevin Bissett, THE CANADIAN PRESS
Published Wednesday, July 24, 2013 6:57PM ADT

MONCTON, N.B. -- Colin Whitbread says his 29-kilometre surf on a single tidal bore Wednesday in the Petitcodiac River in southeastern New Brunswick was unlike anything he has ever experienced in his years riding waves.

"There's nothing like it in the world, so it's an experience totally unique," said Whitbread, who was caked in mud and covered in scrapes.

"I'll never forget this."

The tidal bores in the Petitcodiac River have increased in height in recent years since gates under a causeway that crosses over the river were opened in 2010.

Whitbread and J.J. Wessels say they rode the wave for two hours over the muddy river, where they were joined by other surfers as they approached Moncton's riverfront to large crowds who cheered them on.

Whitbread said while it was exciting, it was also dangerous and should only be attempted by experienced surfers with emergency crews for support.

The tidal bore results from the high tides in the Bay of Fundy, pushing water into the river and creating a wave about a metre in height.

"It's like a freight train," said Whitbread, 33. "You're catching a little tsunami tidal wave."

It's that kind of danger that kept Tim Adham from Nova Scotia on the shore watching the event with his daughter. The pair drove to Moncton with their surf boards intending to ride the bore but chose to take a pass.

"I might come back and give it a try when it gets more popular and there is some kind of contingency set up for if somebody gets hurt or somebody gets stuck," Adham said. "But for now it's just a bunch of extreme guys trying it out."

Adham said he got a lot of strange looks from people at Lawrencetown Beach, a popular surfing spot in the Halifax area, when he said he was going to Moncton to surf.

The tidal bores in the Petitcodiac River have increased in height in recent years since gates under a causeway that crosses over the river were opened in 2010.

There is a plan to replace a 300-metre section of the causeway with a bridge, which would allow the tidal bore wave and aspiring surfers to travel another 15 kilometres up the river.

Ben Champoux, Moncton's director of tourism, said he hopes tidal bores become a tourist draw for the city.

"It is a game-changer for Moncton and our river," he said.

James Upham of Moncton was one of the many people staking out a good viewing spot to see the tidal bore.

"That was one of the coolest things I've ever seen," he said. "I grew up in Moncton and remember when the bore was a lot smaller than it is today, and to see people actually surfing on it is exciting."

Surfing begins at 36s in.

The Bend.

The flow is from the right side of the pic. Note the green area. That was all river when I was a boy and it was a thrill to watch The Bore come up the river. The Brown trickle you see is the river now. It is known locally as The Chocolate River because that is what's left after The Mighty Petitcodiac was destroyed by greedy asshole politicians.

Salmon, trout, shad, seals, porpoise...

Over a hundred schooners anchored off the docks in the days of sail...

Huge warehouses, rail, roads... The Hub of the Maritimes...

Bastard politicians tore a chunk of history out of the hearts of thousands.

I had a thought today whilst watching the news. New Brunswick and Nova Scotia and the Feds are in talks with Big Oil to start offshore drilling in an area that, if an earthquake is produced, a tsunami could get my ass wet. I live just north of "The Bend" and I am sitting at about 35m above sea level. As it is, we have a tidal bore, albeit much diminished after a causeway was built which silted up a very wide and navigable river. It's made possible by the way the Bay Of Fundy narrows. There is a creek in a small valley right on the bend that runs not far from my house.

I would love to agree with that sentiment, A, but 'tis difficult. I once read: Find a picture of yourself aged 20 and one of you at age 40. Now go to the mirror- can you still tell me you don't believe in death??

And it all happens with the passage of TIME.

It is nothing short of a miracle that the Blessed Halls of Mom were gifted with the Presence of King Khandu just as she was approaching the Finnish Line. That's the border that separates Norway from Finland, where the five-dollar bills are a major cash crop, as it were. Obama missed a bet by not trademarking the face of Abe. Could have balanced the national debt right there! No Abe, no fins. No fins, no Finland,. Simple...

Depending upon my needs I will shop anywhere. Just this afternoon I was in the Walmart in Flin Flon, MB where seal liver was on sale. Naturally I picked up a couple of kilos for emergency fare, because you never can tell. I'm keeping it in the fridge in the dining room.

No aurora last night and probably none tonight. Cloudy last night and blowing snow and clouds tonight.

Did you know that if you go outside and whistle you can whistle up the aurora. It will come in all of its glory, but it will take you away with it. I learned this last night in a class on the aurora by A Noted Canadian Astrologer...er, Astronomer.

I'm tired. We went dog mushing is afternoon and I was on a team of seven, with an old and a young lead. Nice run, and I can now say that I was a participant in the Ididamile.

There are some things that I will go to WalMart for, maybe once a year, usually things like cough medicine or Sudafed. I feel like my IQ is slipping every moment once I drive onto the parking lot so I make my visits as brief and infrequent as possible. I used to be able to get these things at KMart, but KMart moved out of town - I'd have to drive 200+ miles to Abilene to go to a KMart now.

I went to (shuffle feet and stare at ground)... Walmart. There, I said it. A heavy burden has been lifted and the road to ridding myself of the guilt that gnaws at me in the pit of my stomach can begin. Well, after I go back Monday morning. I mean, red seedless grapes for $1.47 a pound? In February? In Moncton, New Frozen Brunswick? Friday is 'flier day' at Walmart and they sold out in an hour. The veggie guy I talked to said he had to tell (I was there at 11:30; they open at 8:00.) near 200 people the same thing : sold out >>> raincheck at customer service. I went to customer service, looked at the lineup, and left.

Now, I do go to 'that' store for Mum's lutiene (vitamin for the eyes) but that's justified as only they sell it in a 10mg dose. Oh yeah, the price is 1/3 of the other stores.
