And these Bergie bits are 10,000 years old and so was the 1000 year old settlement at L'Anse aux Medows. It was just so sad that we couldn't have touched one even chipped one for our 150 year old rum to be cooled by it. The weather Gods just unleashed such a severe low that the local fisherman bellowed....NO...nobody goeth out there today heaven forbid!
Wanna come here when it's warm then come in July or August..but then it's only 20 some degrees celsius. Also remember this is the northeastern most civilized outpost of Canada. You must come..you'll get acclimated...Claude could build you a Hack that has all kinds of heated wear outlets. Claude's the man

Guys! I lived in Alaska, I know COLD
And since I have traveled all over this beautiful North America...well only BC and Alberta as far as Canada goes (driven the Alcan as well) and the dry [COLOR="rgb(65, 105, 225)"]HOT[/COLOR] deserts of the West and the brutal August heat of the WY and SD "Bad Lands; I'll take the cold any day!

But Elmer - "10,000 year old bergs" - just gotta make a margarita with some chips!
