Mark, Iím not going to tell you not to do this, but I will tell you to be prepared. Things for you to think about
: lots of grains, bread, pasta, peanut butter - food
for the body. Forget the salads.
- lots of mitts and socks. Not because they will get wet from the snow but because your body will expel moisture. Dry is warm, damp is cold. Change often when you go out and hang them up to dry when you get back to your accommodations.
- a good pair of polarized sun glasses.
- a willy warmer or 2.
- have a meet & greet with the local RCMP detachment when you arrive at your destination
. If they know your plans, they will keep an eye out for you. They hate finding frozen bodies in the spring and many want any excuse to go snowmobiling and will check up on you. Also, if you travel to town, stop by the detachment during your stay, and say: ĎHi, Iím o.k.í
- donít put your tongue on cold metal. It will stay there.
- donít eat yellow snow.
- do make lots of snow angels.
- bring lots of ebooks.
- and to keep this thread sailing related; if you put your boat on the hard
, make sure itís not at the far end of the yard. You'll want to head
south immediately after your adventure.
Have fun and keep us posted,
P.S. Iím currently in Saskatchewan after travelling through Alaska
, Yukon, NWT, and northern Alberta. Amazing wildlife - but itís the summertime - unfortunately most will be sleeping when you get here (except maybe the wolves and bison). Just checking off yet another item on my bucket list.
