Waterloo was long closed by the time I worked for Seagrams. All thier alcohol was made in Gimli, MB by then.

Probably the last picture ever, of Harju's store in Kasabowie.



When I went back, this is all I found. It made me very sad!

Yeah, I guess it closed up in the early 90's. Part of it burned down. Two of the original buildings are now condos, and another barrel warehouse is part of a think tank/school now. Seagram's was founded here in the mid-1800's.

A couple of the stills from Waterloo were re-assembled in Gimli, and are still in use today.

The actual bottling is done in southern Ontario. It was done in Gimli, but it was too hard to ship from there, due to breakage.

That was the picture, Finndian! I was standing right THERE. I'm pretty sure Kari took the pic, though!

Good times that I hope to repeat!!

HumVee seems to be missing from the pics. Here He is, the evening we could only find beer and pepperoni sticks for dinner.

Icebreaker 2007 - it was a beautiful thing.

One of my favorite memories, the campsite beside the old tracks.




And of course, Kari's call of the wild...Get up TnT, when it's time to go, it's time to go!



...and that truck camper is no Adventurer....THIS is an Adventurer




Kari, before he became an ex-pat, living on the run . (oh, and thanks for the chick pic!)




oh, and TnT's Barney suit should get some play too...
