Leave the moss and lichen on the roof. Some folks go to great lengths to protect their egg from the UV rays, and here you are with a green solution.

A "Persian" is an invention exclusively Thunder Bay - they are totally "AWESOME" mixture of too many calories and far too much cholesterol!

They are a food ( I use the term loosely) that cant be explained, only experienced.

I have had to restrict myself to a strict regime of one per month, which is difficult because I am sure there is some type of addictive ingredient baked into them.

Think donut, then think the BEST TASTING ICING COVERED DONUT YOU HAVE EVER HAD! That will pale in comparison to your first bite of a freshly baked Persian.

I am originally a Toronto boy and when I first came to Thunder Bay 30 years I was introduced to the Persian , as I too was one of the great uniformed and had never heard of them.

Be careful dear friends, once addicted there shall be severe withdrawal when you return to your hometowns

The Persian Man is one of the better spots to get them for sure

No Ann, you are not wrong! They are to die for! I was visiting a friend the other day and she had a couple of day old persians and decided to fry them up in a pan with butter! My Doctor ha had a conniption because my cholesterol levels skyrocketed ( have to double dose the Lipitor I guess)

I will not be replacing those items as my thrust is to keep the unit as light as possible.

I am encouraged that your able to tow yours -

Thanks
Personally feel a 1998 Chrysler Cirrus with a 2.4L 4 Cylinder, should have lots of power to pull a 1300 boler. Add a transaxle cooler for long trips, and trailer brakes though not required for a 1300 would be a good idea as for any load over 500 lbs. I am not an expert but HP will not be a problem (P.S. we have the newer larger Corolla)
Bolers are so light that it is more about the air we push while towing I have been told by more than one RV place

My wife and I were talking and watching the new rig in the mirror and generally enjoying each others company when we pulled up to a tollbooth. The nice lady asked where we where going and I told her. She then asked for our total length. i told her 34 feet and said "$156 please" At that point I realized we were about to go for a boat ride.

I live just a few miles from Horseshoe Bay and use the ferries a lot to visit with my family on the island. Over the years I cant tell you how many times people have asked for clarification as to where the ferrry they are on is actually going - even though the signage is pretty clear when you purchase the ticket and they do say over a load speaker prior to loading where the ferry is going ! On more than one occasion they have found out they are heading to Vancouver Island rather to Bowen Island or Powell River.......

Smile Rememberances

We drove through Thunder Bay when it was Fort William / Port Arthur in 1963 on our honeymoon.

We have lots of fond memories of that area, especially of Grand Portage where a meeting of Native Americans was interrupted by a newlywed looking for the rest room.

I well remember those black mosquitoes that like to drain your body of blood.
