Yeah, yeah -- but Jamie Browne does a heck of a lot better on "reality history" than those PBS weinies do. he has a whole series -- of which Pioneer Quest was the first -- there is also "Klondike: Quest for Gold" which was about doing the inland hike to the Klondike gold fields; Quest for the Sea, which is about living in an east coast fishing village cut off from all civilization, and Quest for the Bay, in which a group of eight people take a fully loaded (until it tips) York boat from Winnipeg to York Factory on the Hudson Bay.Cabin Fever said:It's a bit spendy, but remember the costs are in Canadian currency, so they're only about 10 bucks a peice....right?
It was done in Newfoundland -- a place called Hay Cove. They had to handline six tonnes of cod to pay the "company man" at the end of the season -- it was really amazing.Mel- said:that quest for the sea really sounds interesting! it was on the east shore of canada? Where at?
