Are we going to be put in the penalty box for not using metric terms in this thread?

Eh?

It sure looks tidal. We'll camp out beside the river before crossing, and someone will watch the water level during the night. They can wake me up after my bike is across and my one litre coffee is ready.

I think you've mistaken where we are going, Tom. The dining package with the complimentary spa visit and bike shuttle is offered only in Quebec. Wrong province.

I was going to say the river was 0.5 metres deep but I always use imperial when talking to our friends from the south.

That's good. We're a bit slow on the uptake. Basically, you're talking about a cubit, right?

How many fathoms would that be?

Just googled it, .5 metre is about a quarter of a fathom,.

Furlongs? Oh, wait, .0022. That's not very deep.

We're talking depth of water, surely fathoms are more appropriate!

I was thinking that I might bring a horse along, Steph, if I could finagle it through customs. Could come in handy. You never know when you'll need a horse. Besides Anton (AtlasEXP) was thinking of doing a film combining elements of Brokeback Mountain, Borat, April In Paris, A Clockwork Orange and Full Metal Jacket.

However, to appease out Canadian cousins, the official measurements of the trip are now fathoms, knots and nautical miles. It's all good. I can convert to furlongs if necessary.

As long as there's a complimentary knobby washing by a beautiful curly haired woman of Celtic lineage, I'm still in.

I think I can make it through a river of a mere 0.00008228941684665227 nautical league by myself, and I guess I can make my own coffee too. Man I'll really be roughing it eh?

Just watch out for Anton. He's a wicked smooth talker, and has a cool accent.

I think we can all brew some decent java and come up with something to eat of an evening. After that power slide you did on our last venture, I don't think you'll be at the back of the pack on this one, Tom.

Tim, thank you for bringing the horse. How many liters of ketchup will it require?

I don't do liters. Can you convert that to hogsheads?

Ok, Googled it. .00419 Hogshead equals one liter. Glad we're on the same page.

You could bring a horse but the newfoundland pony is the breed of choice on the island. Small tough working animals. Google it.
And DO NOT use the word ketchup on RTR. Actually it is a banned word and will not show up on the site.
