There have been some big additions to the North Water shop recently. They're the strong silent type, and we love the work that they do. They include 2 x 40 amp Radio Frequency (RF) Welders and a 25 ton Italian built Beam Press.
My girlfriend Tori and I were more than a little nervous starting this particular portage. As if the slog around Burr Falls on the remote Fond Du Lac River in Northern Saskatchewan isn't tough enough by itself; there was a mother bear who was very likely in a protective mood and her two cubs standing were milling about right on the trail as we approached in our canoe.
