    [–] Gord Downie has died hikingguy36 1 points ago in canada

    We did the same! It was a magical night. So much joy, and love, and sadness, all at once.

    I got bummed out when I realized what the monitors on the stage were for. I was upper level, so I could see the lyrics on a couple of them. Drove home the reality of his illness for me.

    They closed the last show in London with Fiddler's Green, and I'm pretty sure there wasn't a dry eye in the place. And there certainly aren't any here now :(

    I caught the London show, and I have to agree, in all the concerts I've been to, I've never felt a vibe like that. There are no words for it.

    Man, this one hurts. I have so many wonderful memories of time spent with friends and family at Hip concerts, playing and singing their songs. His voice was in the background of so many gatherings. Godspeed, you wonderful man. Thank you for everything.

    I have a gas furnace and water heater. Makes a huge difference in what I used to pay for electric everything. I had bills as high as $400 that are now $100, maybe $120 if I use my air conditioner.

    I'm in Canada, myself, right on the shore of Lake Huron. We get a lot of high winds and fluctuating temperatures in the winter, which can sometimes lead to power outages. We usually have one or two outages a year that last for a couple hours or so.

    Not very. There have been a few occasions where we get ice rain and high winds, and the power lines go down for a while, it's handy to have access to warm soup or a stew when it's cold and dark.

    [–] Guys of Reddit, what’s a traditionally feminine thing you enjoy? hikingguy36 58 points ago in AskReddit

    I joined a "yoga for men" class a couple years ago, still go twice a week and do it at home. Feels great, and all my stress is gone after.

    I was there in June. Walking up past the shops towards the tower in the craziest wind and rain, so bad that we almost gave up. Ten minutes later the sun was out and the winds were calm. So glad it changed, incredible views.

    36 hours by train to Red Lake Road from Barrie. Signals were messed up. Worst part was that I didn't bring enough to read, and this was before cell phones were common.

    [–] Big sunken boat in lake hikingguy36 1 points ago in interestingasfuck

    It's really beautiful in the winter, I try to go every year. Cold, sure, but definitely worth it. I don't bother going in the summer anymore.

    Before you get too excited, this is what it looks like at least 4 months of the year

    Also, here's a quiet day at the same place in the summer

    This seriously made a shitty morning a little better. I needed a good laugh.

    Well, you have to hand it to him, that was a very eloquently described shit.
