Time to get my ass back to work.Off to Nunavut on monday,fly out of Calgary and overnight at Winnipeg monday night,then fly north eventually going to a float plane and then chopper to get to the camp(tent camp) north of Baker lake,tip of the hudsons bay and then north some.It's a 6 week job and I will be training some of the natives on the machinery. Were building a tank farm and a landing strip,looks like good fishing with every cast getting you a 2 pounder and the natives will take you out after work. 15 pounders are common and most are released. No cel service or net,plus its dry and a bottle of whiskey will go for about $150.00.


No trees though,not a one. 8O

Should go buy up a bunch of bug spray and get another Hudson Bay wool blanket. :wink:


I swore at one time I would never go back to the territories,now i'm looking forward to it,like a 6 week camping trip. I was told to bring lots of smokes also.

Any tips from the other bushwackers out there? Christ,they even told me to bring my fishing rod,I'm just wondering if I can bring toothpaste,6 weeks is a long time to go without brushing the teeth. 8O

Good money,will be able to take the winter off if I want after this. :wink:

Zigismund!

Well, whatever you need to do for kicks. Good luck, and don't look down on all of us.


(By the way, baking soda makes a fine toothpaste. ---They used to have powders before paste anyway. Just don't get carried away with it on your gums. Costs almost nothing, and the cap never falls off in your luggage.)
