Deep Men of the Deep

Shore leave...berthed for the night in 2008

Shore of Kootenay Lake

For 13 years I helped organize the annual Gentleman's Cruise-A-Palooza, which placed 10 men in a big vessel on the waters of Kootenay Lake, one of the most pristine and beautiful on the planet. Last year we toasted the final Palooza, choosing to end on a positive note (many fun years & all sailors alive, well and mostly sober).

Well, a few hardy deck hands decided they weren't finished yet, so 4 of us sail today on the Deep Men of the Deep journey. There will be eagles, mountains, deep glacial water to swim in, fish eluding my line...and
euchre (if you are from Ontario you will understand). Our vessel is the Cameronian, of Kaslo Shipyards.

Final days and nights of summer. Deep men. Deep lake. Shallow fun.

Humor IS a strong form of activism -

It's time to tackle ignorance with something that can't be beat - laughter.

Enjoy this video. A large screen will let you read the witty signs more easily. Don't be fooled by bigots and hate mongers. Remember what Jesus had to say about gays, " ...... ."
