Hits & Misses: A Clothing Pull

For today's "Miss", you can shake your fist at George de Mestral. George came up with the idea of Velcro after removing burrs from his clothing after a hunting trip.

While it is a great invention, it sure can mar up technical fabrics. Forgot to do up the velcro on your bag? Hope you didn't want to return that baselayer or keep that scarf in pristine condition. I'm sure your pooch thinks this is a "Miss" too (or maybe more-so you, when trying to remove burrs)!

Hits & Misses: is a funny look at the awesome things we experience while enjoying the outdoors, while still laughing at the not-so-awesome. Share your Hits & Misses with us!

Snapshot: Lakefield Polar Paddle Canoe Race 2014

PolarPaddle20141.jpg

We captured a piece of Canadiana in Lakefield, Ontario this weekend as part of their Polarfest 2014 festivities, they held a canoe race. Since the waterways are frozen solid, the race was held down their main street. Two team members had to sit in the canoe (and wear a lifejacket... safety first!) while the other four members had to push the canoe to the finish line. Prizes were awarded to the best dressed team as well as the fastest team.
