    We get to Huntsville about once every one or teo years now. Back then we made fun of the Main street, the whole 300 foot strip. But we were city folk.

    I was really young, likely around 5 years old give or take. We stayed in a rented cottage on some river somewhere (I'll have to ask my dad exactly where?) and occasionally on a Saturday night we'd go watch the bears at the local dump. It was great fun as a kid, being on the water swimming, fishing, lots of room to ride bikes, play ball, games, etc. I always remember Hulatuck's garage (sp) for some reason? Obviously my dad had to go there a time or two for some reason or another, but it always seemed to come up in conversations?

    Wow! Not good. Any rain up there last night/today? We've had a good soaking here today in Oshawa which started last night.

    We went out in the boat yesterday and had a great time. Cameron was a little choppy early on but got better as the wind died down. There's a couple nice cottages on the river for sale and doubt they'll be on the market very long

    About 35 minutes from Huntsville just off the Seguin trail is where we are. Not on a lake but 5-10 minutes away from a dozen different lakes with no real traffic of people and boats.

    Visited that mill in 88 as part of my orientation with KC. Area was quite a bit different than today, was a one horse town then. We were laughing at an EE who had just put in his transfer there, but I think he made a smart move.

    I love Huntsville. Spent a few years of my youth there when my Dad worked at the Kimberly Clark facility helping build it. Looks like you've got a great spot, Reevester.

    Beautiful day at camp. Spent most of the morning and afternoon on the deck watching the kid play. Had to run into Huntsville for a new TV and some other shit. Went to the lake a while ago and had a great swim. Not leaving till Wednesday.

    MNRF officials say the fire that was 100 hectares in size Thursday night and is at 384 hectares as of Friday afternoon. The ministry is also recommending that local authorities also order evacuations across the Key River, where the municipality of Killarney begins on the north side.

    Great PM quotes PMs Speech: “I am a Canadian, free to speak without fear, free to worship in my own way, free to stand for what I think right, free to oppose what I believe wrong, or free to choose those who shall govern my country. This heritage of freedom I pledge to uphold for myself and all mankind.” – John G. Diefenbaker --- “Canada is and always has been our country. We want Canada to be true north that is as strong and as free as it can be in every way that matters – the best country in the world. That’s why we’re here, that’s why we strive, that’s why we serve.” – Stephen J. Harper --- “The fact is we work uh… the… sorry, let me just try to reorder the thoughts.... I did not grope her” – Groper Justin P. Trudeau
  23. Now that my son has his G2 he now wants his own car. We are looking for a full size sedan (way cheaper to insure!) like an Impala or Monte Carlo or something similar. I have looked at a few Impalas and 1 Monte Carlo but all I have seen have issues of some sort., price being one of them. We are interested in something around the 2004 year to 2011-12 with low KMs, if possible and not really looking to spend more than 5 Gs but will entertain something if it is exceptional? Color isn't important but something that is in good shape and will be reliable to him is. I preferred a certified one but depending on what it needs, an uncertified one may also be acceptable. I have looked at both Kijiji and Autotrader and have seen a few but I thought I'd see if anyone knows of one for sale or one coming for sale that you think would fit our needs. (Durham Region/GTA preferred but will travel for a better deal) Thanks.

    Ok Fail, Hwy 11 and hwy 69. Are you happier now? According to you Webers was the only burger place in Ontario! There were no small mom and pop restaurants that served hamburgers on any road or highway in Ontario before Webers in 1963. Thank god for Webers! What an idea they must have had! You idiot Fail!! There were alot of restaurants along 11, 12, 69, 169, 27, 35, 7, 41, and whatever road to small towns existed. Webers did not invent the hamburger and sure as hell not the first restaurant on the side of the road. And alot of those small restaurants have closed up. Major changes that have changed cottage country and the north over the years are better fuel economy, faster travel times, better hydro service to cottages allowing refrigerators left on with food, better appliances, bigger box and grocery stores in city, etc. Even the Enroute locations take a big bite out of small business. Small cottage area stores that used to busle with weekend business of meats and vegtables see reduced business as better coolers and ice packs along with faster travel times allow cottagers to buy in big cheaper stores and take more north. The divided hwy changed alot of businesses also. And if you dont believe me look in South River, Sundridge, Powassan, Trout Creek etc. At all the old dying restaurants and store fronts. Webers survived and made a great business decision to buy the old CN Tower walkway. That is probably what saved their business as it allows service to two way traffic. Doesnt change the fact their burgers suck. But its the in crowd thing to do I guess. Stopped at Webers on way to cottage.
