    And the beer sucks! (see John Candy line at a hockey game in the Canadian Bacon movie.)

    Any of you American riders coming up to Canada for the first time should first watch Canadian Bacon. :nod :rofl

    Hey! I take umbrage at the shitty music thing. I mean, Neil Young -- The Barenaked Ladies -- Enter the Haggis -- Bruce Cockburn -- Ashley MacIssac -- and lest we forget, The Hurtin' Albertans, with their song "It's Time to Switch to Whiskey."

    I rest my case. :lol3

    There's a lot of great Canadian music but in my opinion, it doesn't start with Neil Young.

    And - I didn't make that map, I just thought it was funny.

    Gosh, you guys are sensitive up there! It WAS funny.

    I guess I'm simply showing my age with an affection for Neil Young. Actually saw him in concert with Crosby, Stills, and Nash a looooong time ago.

    Would any of you have a good suggestion for a folding chair of some sort, that would pack on the bike easily? Links appreciated. :D

    Thanks. Looking forward to this trip!
    :freaky


    **Edit** And it needs to be able to hold at least 250lbs... That is about 120 kilos for our hosts to the north.:D

    5 gal plastic pail with a Gamma Seal lid or a Rubbermaid Actionpacker. You can sit on 'em and put stuff in 'em.

    Looks like a really nice solution, but... $139!!! For a folding chair?!?!?! + another $47 for the leg extensions. + Shipping? No wonder they are sold at the Aerostitch store. :eek1

    No weight limit noted, but I love my Crazy Creek. Bought a Hexalite model for last year's Roaming Rally.
