I can't figure the place out myself, except that they have excellent coffee and you can find a four-star hotel in the ass-end of nowhere. No one has ever pulled a gun on me north of the US border. I like that.

Canadian Whiskey, however? Let's talk.
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.

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.

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.

Thanks. Looking forward to this trip!



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

How about this?



Oh right, you want folding.

Sorry.

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.
