    [–] Travelers of Reddit, what place DID live up to the hype? hikingguy36 10 points ago in AskReddit

    That is where we were too! Left Cape St. Mary's heading for St. John's during a crazy storm, cold, high winds, rain, you know typical NFLD weather in June.

    It was you Islanders that made my visit there great. Our trailer had a breakdown, and I swear half the island came out to help. Including people with hot soup to warm up the crowd! It was a day that went from bad to almost fun. A great trip story that I love to tell.

    When I went it was the windiest and foggiest weather I'd ever seen. I went in to the visitors center to use the bathroom, came back out and it was sunny and calm.

    From Canada myself and that was the big difference I noticed when in the States. All of the guys there are posturing in bars and such.

    Just shut up and get a pint and your skates, eh.

    [–] Whats a big industry secret that isn't supposed to be known by the general public? hikingguy36 4 points ago in AskReddit

    I wish they threatened to hang up. Usually they ask for my supervisor or manager, who has much bigger things to deal with than their dumb asses.

    Enjoy! I hope you have better weather on the Dingle than we did.

    I was there this past June. Great city, lots to see and do, but I also highly recommend renting a car and touring the country, it's spectacular. Hiking in Glendalough was definitely a highlight for me, beautiful area.

    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.

    [–] Homeowners of Reddit: when you purchased your first home, what item did you not think about that ended being very useful to you? hikingguy36 1 points ago in AskReddit

    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 55 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.
