Dry Bags for camping, canoeing, kayaking, fishing, hunting

This is another one of those pieces of equipment that every outdoors enthusiast should consider a necessity. Let's face it we've all been out on a lake in a canoe or kayak, loaded down with gear, weather forecast said " Clear skies, chance of precipitation 10%". OK, well how do you explain the torrential downpour that lasted for four days, after we were already 10 miles from the dock. All our gear was floating in water; clothes soaked, electronics fried, food all soggy..........not even a dry piece of clothing. So now you can relate to what I'm saying.......I instantly took you back to that exact experience. With these dry bags which come in various sizes and configurations; it makes trips like the one I mentioned a bit more bearable. I now own numerous dry bags all suited to a different purpose; they're awesome!

Head Lamps Have Come A Long Way


The technology in todays head lamps is phenomenal; every outdoors enthusiast should have one in their pack. If you do purchase one, do your research and don't skimp on price. In todays market you get what you pay for......I personally use a 3 light unit and find it more than adequate. One of the best things about headlamps is the ability to function hands free..walking working, reading maps, fishing, hunting, hiking...........they're awesome

Suggestion for Mayor Miller

Let's ban all baseball bats, knives, hockey sticks, tire irons, golf clubs......oh and amputate every ones hands. Why? Well Mr. Miller all of these have killed people......needlessly and for no really good reason. I think its absolutely necessary to protect all the people who live in your "Safe City" from further potential personal harm. This is just an attempt to show you how ludicrous your thoughts of banning all handguns/guns in Canada. How many people get stabbed in Toronto on any given day? How many of them die? Do you call for all knives to be banned? Deal with the real problem...........

Innocent Bystander Shot In Toronto....Ban All Handguns

"I think it's time for every member of Parliament in this country to act," Mr. Miller said at a noon-hour news conference.
"Handguns kill people. They kill people who aren't involved. They're used to kill family members. And I don't think it is acceptable any more to have these loopholes in the law that allow so-called collectors to have them."

Come on Mr. Miller let's get a grip on reality. The problem is not all of the legally registered handguns; nor is it all the registered long-guns. The gun registry has proven to be the most expensive blunder to date; in fact if all the money spent on the gun registry had been spent on dealing with the real issues maybe just maybe I wouldn't have to be responding to your absurd comments.The problem Mr. Miller if you would open your mind is a social problem, a problem with the courts, a problem with the government in failing to step up to the plate and take action on violent criminals, violent acts and overhaul the youth justice system. I have been attacked in your so called "Safe City" by thugs, seven of them in fact who have continually harassed neighbors, visitors, children and the elderly. Yes I can refer to them as thugs, in fact "Drug Dealers", who openly deal drugs, use drugs and who are known to the police. In fact when I phoned the police that night, two officers attended; I was informed that not only are they known to police, but the police in your "Safe City" regularly have handguns drawn on them when they enter places of business and are required to back off until the "Swat team" arrives. By this time the "Thugs" have left via a back door. I for one Mr. Miller know the facts, and I'm hoping that you also know the facts, so get off your bureaucratic publicity campaign, and address the real issues and stop blaming law abiding Canadians for these terrible incidents. My thoughts go out to the families affected by these thoughtless crimes.
