Okay, this is day 2 of attempting to navigate this blog thing. I am a technical moron so I am having serious difficulty getting this thing up and running but I shall press on. I want to blog on my motorcycle tour of the Western Front in June/July so this is practice.
I hope to keep everyone apprised of my trip as I go, what I’m seeing, what I’m thinking about what I’m seeing, photographs, video and actual history from the 1st Brigade C.F.A., Canadian Field Artillery of which John McCrae was a part from 1914 to 1916.
In other news I’m just about finished the book, The Golden Spruce by John Vaillant. Excellent book. I have always thought of Jon Krakauer as about my favorite non-fiction author but this guy is just as brilliant a writer. He has woven in the mystery of an eccentric, fascinating and tragic character, Grant Hadwin; logger, survivalist, activist and a lot of interesting history of the Haida people and their homeland and the logging industry in the Canadian northwest. I highly recommend this book.
