The tradition continues as 13 human Gonzos and 3 of the K-9 corps
clustered at the new Fall River Timmies for hugs and kisses before going
into the wilderness. What started in early 1998 with a tramp around
Jack's Lake has remained unbroken.
What a gorgeous evening for a stroll as Fireball, I'm Selling Halifax,
Goat, IMAX, SpellChick, P*%$#K, Don't be Last, Viking, Harware Helga,
Ian, Brenda, Sungod, and Birder, Chesea, Printer, and Frosty drove out
the old #2 to Laurie Provincial Park, closed to the public for the
season, for a leisurely 5 km stroll around the perimeter overlooking
Grand Lake, finally deciding at which site we would have our fire and
begin our feeding frenzy.
With the temperature quickly dropping and a slight breeze off the water
we soon had a fire going and cuddled around the smoke. Then out came the
"metal" sticks provided by IMAX and weiners and sausages of every ilk
were coming out of the backpacks and were stuck into the flames. The
Sungod provided community Dijon for the crew and some of the more classy
ones even had buns for their weinies.
Since it was a "work" night, people had to go to work tommorow, an early
getaway (830) began with the exodus of the "classy Lassies", while the
"rad Lads" tarried behind to extinguish the flame.
Good friends, good fun, good memories, good night.
