I had to do a double take on that one. A wood burning stove, not a stove made from wood...

I'll second the pix also. Like Knunut, we were stationed at Goose Bay Labrador from '74 to '76. We also have many memories from that time and the photos take us back there .

As is the Command Post and the housing area we lived in. The Goose was a unique assignment and depending on circumstances, some despaired leaving while others counted the days. Now living in Texas where a day in the 40s seems chilly I think back to a time when -40 was common, but let's not hijack this discussion.

That would be Tim Horton's, right?

Safe journey!

Yes, Tom Horton's. it is somewhat of a national obsession up here.

We arrived safely at the campsite, despite the snow along the way. Weather is beautiful here, tucked in the mountains of western Newfoundland. The boys caught trout last night and were very excited. My father in law and I did we'll too. Here is a picture of the fisherman coming in from hauling his lobster pots. In the second pic he is banding the catch. The last is fresh herring frying for lunch.

I read that salmon was a good source of Omega 3 but herring is the king of all fish in terms the good oils. I guess the Norwegians have it right.

We will cook the lobsters later today. They were caught not far from the former USAF base Harmon. Anyone out there know where that was?

We will be there this summer. If you want to see and visit with a bunch of Airstreamers keep and eye out for the WBCCI caravan that is coming in July and August. 30 rigs, I think.

I have three weeks off - last two in July and the first week of August. Maybe we will meet up. The caravan you will be on was here two years ago and ended on labour day in Pippy Park. We happened to be there as well that weekend. Some friends of our we're coming to the campground to visit and not knowing our campsite number the didn't worry. How hard could it be to find the only Airstream in the province? Boy were they surprised to come around the corner and see 30+ silver trailers.

Here are the before and after pictures.

Well the first trip of 2013 has concluded. The fishing was not spectacular - only two trout - but the boys had fun. We did manage to score seven lobsters and my sister dropped by to give us fresh crab legs. So in the end we did well on the seafood.

Just as we were hooking up to leave the power jack quit working in the extend direction. Works ok retracting but I had to use the hand crank to hitch up. I suspect one of the limit switches is malfunctioning. A warranty call is in the immediate future.

Here is a picture of Barachois pond and Erin mountain. Nice park.
