Kids in the Hall - Voyageur Fur Trappers

In my youth I loved watching the Canadian television show, Kids in the Hall. Over the years they put out some pretty weird yet funny stuff. A great example is their take on modern-day Voyageur fur trappers. As somebody who works in a cubical farm, this really hit home. Good thing I don’t need to wear a suit...

Before we get to the real history lesson below; a pre-history lesson. This little clip is from Season 2 Episode 2 and aired in Fall, 1990.

For sale: double sleeping bag

Even if the sleeping bag was free I don’t think I would take it.

doritos as kindling

This little nugget of advice could save your life if you happen find yourself car camping at your local state park and run out of kindling. That being said, it would be a real shame to waste those Doritos on a life-giving fire.

I found this handy little tip on the greatest website of all time. Make sure you check out 99 Life Hacks to Make Your Life Easier. You will thank me later.

I’m not sure what the rules are for lifejacket use because I’m pretty sure somebody could argue that they are really just swimming.

The real thing to sort out is to figure out how to teach people to kayak from this baby. I'm positive my effectiveness as an instructor would go way up.

Depending on your options, the HotTug ranges in price from €8,950 ($11,700US) for the basic model to €16,450 ($21,500US) for the top-of-the-line version which comes with a stove and electronic motor.

The HutTug

According to the website, you can cruise around your favourite lake for about 3 hours that is, after waiting 2.5 hours for the wood stove to heat the water.

Note to HotTug: I’m totally happy to do a review of this if you can ship one to Toronto. Call me.

That’s A Serious Fire Ban! [Photography]

Two quick camping tips:

Fire Ban Sign

If you are planning on going camping this weekend only to discover there is a fire ban, remember that some areas are even worse so don’t get too upset. Also, don’t piss off your camping neighbour next door and they might do you a favour when the rangers come by.

Best camping neighbour ever.

I know times have been tough on banks and they have branching out their marking to niche audiences but I think this is taking it a step to far.

I’m not sure if I should be insulted or not that they decided to put pillars around the ATM. How much damage can kayaks really do? Come on!

The New Injury Prevention Rule for Paddlers

I can speak only for myself but I think that we would be less likely to get injured if we implemented this rule for regular paddling (or at least for rock hopping, surfing and other general shenanigans).

If you can't see the image above it says, "Rules: You are NOT allowed to do ANYTHING that begins with the words, Hey Y'all watch this!".

Blogger and friend of the site, Bryan Hansel from is currently taking pre-orders for an awesome t-shirt he got designed.

You need to purchase one of these shirts. Just think of it as a public service announcement for your friends to get prepared because when our zombie overloads finally descend it will be too late for everybody.

This whole zombie swimming thing originally came out of a post I did back a year ago where I fantasized about somebody making a t-shirt so I’m glad Bryan came through for us. Shortly after I posted the original article, a paddling/hiking shop in Kitchener,Ontario got famous for 3 minutes when their store marquee was featured on the Fail/Win! Blog.

Bryan’s black t-shirts with white ink are selling for $16.99 with $6 shipping to U.S. addresses. If you live outside the U.S of A, contact Bryan and he will let you know shipping costs.

Order it here.

Whitewater Kayaking Newspaper Ad

Not sure who picked this photo for the newspaper advertisement but I’m glad they did. It totally made my night.

The photo caption says: "Kayaking doesn't have to be all adrenaline all the time. On Virginia's Eastern Shore you can combine wine tasting with a gentle kayak excursion."
