    Let's see. Lock Stock & Two Smoking Barrels got a mention. I recommended this one - http://www.manonwire.com/ and Charlie and Ewan got hashed about.

    I was glad our tent was far enough away to be snore free, but the real key was being upwind :evil

    To Liz and Greg - You both did a bang up job :clap

    I had a great time and the food was excellent!! I hope I didn't make too many enemies :lol3 :deal

    +1 on the movies - there were a ton mentioned and I remember very few with winter coming up I could use some diversion...

    Hey Kevin did Mitch make it home yet? Now there is a true ADV spirit and a great kid.

    Daggy thanks for the Alaska advise, I hope to be able to use all of it!! I'll try to get pic's up tonight if I can find some time.

    Thanks again to all, truly a great time. I hope this was the first annual :evil

    Mitch made it back in one piece. I met him in Pine City and gave him a pair of lobster mitts to keep his hands warm and dry. He continued down 61 and I headed over and picked up Government Rd. He rolled in a half hour behind me - all smiles and thrilled with his adventure.

    Wish I had thought of this song Saturday night:

    - My Girlfriend, Who Lives in Canada

    Ohhhh...
    I wish you could meet my girlfriend, my girlfriend who lives in Canada.
    She couldn't be sweeter
    I wish you could meet her,
    My girlfriend who lives in Canada!

    Her name is Alberta
    She live in Vancouver
    She cooks like my mother
    And sucks like a Hoover.

    I e-mail her every single day
    Just to make sure that everything's okay.
    It's a pity she lives so far away, in Canada!

    Last week she was here, but she had the flu.
    Too bad
    'Cause I wanted to introduce her to you
    It's so sad
    There wasn't a thing that she could do
    But stay in bed with her legs up over her head!
    Oh!

    I wish you could meet my girlfriend,
    But you can't because she is in Canada.
    I love her, I miss her, I can't wait to kiss her,
    So soon I'll be off to Alberta!
    I mean Vancouver!
    Shit! Her name is Alberta, she lives in Vancou-

    She's my girlfriend!
    My wonderful girlfriend!
    Yes I have a girlfriend, who lives in Canada!!

    Since this can of worms has been open ... Urban Dictionary: "My girlfriend who lives in Canada" is a lie invented by hundreds if not thousands of geeky 35 year old birthday boys who can't get any dates and don't want to appear pathetic. The geek will take pictures from magazines or the internet and pass them off as the "Canadian girlfriend". The "girlfriend can also be a spy, cowgirl, model, whatever. ( In this campfire story ... a soon to be nurse ...)
