Invading Canada did seem to be a bit of an American hobby in the 18-19th centuries.

I accidentally invaded Canada by myself in 2008 when I got lost kayaking in the Boundary Waters.  1 1/2 inches to the mile is a confusing map scale!  Four hours and one thunderstorm later, moseyed my way back no worse for the wear.

One thing to note: Border guards have no sense of humor.

Nice joke for the cops with this no authorized night parking in the street...   You have done our evening hahahahaha...

OMG - I found pictures of @tgpumpkin's house on line!  Or maybe it's @Serge Darveau's.  I'm not sure.

They definitely do not! Definitely definitely not! The difference between state agriculture checkpoints and border checkpoints was pretty huge. Except for cruises. That felt more friendly, but I was also a bit younger for that one.

I can plead feasible ignorance.  As I was lost, I can’t definitely say I was in Canada.  I just know I wasn’t where I thought I was and headed south to get back. 

Some of the portages between the lakes up there are along the physical border. It’s pretty fun, trudging along in the middle of nowhere and stumbling along the little markers.

We have different ideas on what's fun. ?

What's the name of this plant?

A dogwood tree?

? Someone tagged me in this photo a couple weeks ago, since I think it's cute when dogs dig.. (Neither of mine do unless they've found a rodent that's hiding.)

Who wants chocolate? @Barb Bliss :) 

Wow!! That is a lot of work for something that would melt if I sat it outside right now with temperatures in the high 80’s. Looks yummy.  

Curious, what do you call a centaur with wings?   Don’t think that was in Greek mythology.

Could be Leonidas reincarned in Pegasus.  :):)
