Friday Fogo.

We went canoe camping over the Victoria Day weekend

Fun was not had by all. 

Fun was had by none. 

I'm being intentionally vague about the exact details, because I have many new readers thanks to my recent online activities.  I don't really feel comfortable exposing all the details of my life right now.

Let's just say that we won't be going canoe camping anytime soon.  And Fogo is 100% on board with this decision.

  1. WAITAMINUTE. You brought your DOG canoe camping??? hahahhahahahahahahhahahhaha. If we brought Star, we'd all be in the water in about 2 seconds. Maybe 1.

    I went canoe camping once with a huge bunch of people and I'd say 20% of the boats flipped just b/c the people couldn't keep themselves upright. Granted we were all drinking people back then, but a dog in a canoe is like 10 drunk people all wrapped up in one.

    I'm sorry you guys didn't have fun though. You did give me a chuckle though. Sorry.

    1. The last dog was okay in the canoe. She didn't like it, mind you. But yes, bringing her was just one of many STUPID decisions we made. Maybe it would've been better if we'd brought alcohol?! Who knows.

  2. I'm with Fogo - and I've never even been canoe camping.

    Read your board on the seal hunt - very informative about the seal hunt and those who oppose it. Guess sneaking up behind a baby seal is a better photo op than standing in a slaughter house surrounded by non-cute animals. Would any of these people be so vocal if the culling took place behind closed doors rather than on an ice floe? I doubt it.

    1. Thanks. Someone accussed me of glorifying the seal hunt with that board. I think I did the opposite, by acknowledging that it's an industry in distress, but one that is no different from commercial beef or pork production. I agree: it the optics of the cute babies (who are EXEMPT from the hunt) and the contrast of blood on white ice that get people all upset.

      I'm not likely to go canoe camping anytime soon. I've too much to lose.

  3. Sorry that your trip was no good. Fun should be had by those who take off on a camping trip. :-/

    1. We'll be sticking close to home for a while now. And MAYBE doing some camper-camping later in the season. Once the memories fade.

  4. Oh no! I hope you are still speaking (barking?) to each other. I have never been canoe-camping or even regular camping...next time leave Fogo with us.

    1. Maybe Mr Wrath can just leave myself and Fogo with you? That sounds more pleasant. Actually, my first option would be to rent a cabin on a lake, and forego the camping aspect entirely.

  5. Yes, yes! Camping at the local hotel, that is how we roll. Next time you and Fogo are more than welcome to join us. Actually the cabin by the lake thing sounds real nice...all peaceful with hot water and soft beds.
