    Great photos and looking forward to opening him up for surgery. Of course I'll need to do a PT, PTT, CBC w/diff., CMP and cardiac enzymes. Oops, wrong patient.

    Well its a shame but I'm sure these Vostoks are made of stern stuff you know. I'm sure Vlad will be out and about again soon.

    Re: The travelling Vostok, who wants it?

    Okay. I toured Vlad around a bit more, but I realize I'm posting a bunch of pictures, so I'll just keep them to myself. (Unless you want to see more?)

    Anyway, I packaged the watch off to Daniel for repair. Hopefully he gets it soon and Vlad can renew his journeys.

    Svorkoetter is the next person in line, so if Daniel could send Vlad off to him when he's had has successful surgery, that would be great.

    Sorry again for making this detour. Although it adds an interesting wrinkle to the Traveling Vostok, it's a chapter I would rather have not written.

    Have a great day!

    Speaking for myself, I like seeing pictures of other places even when Vlad is bleeding awfully from large wounds on them.

    C'mon, Clay - let's see those pics!
    I'm loving this thread for seeing little bits of daily life from around the world
    Have you introduced Vlad to the local tipple yet?

    Re: The travelling Vostok, who wants it?

    Of course we like more photos from other parts of the marble.

    I assume tipple is a pub or drink.

    In dutch we have a tippel-zone, I sure hope it's not related to what OhDark30 means. Allthough I could understand if Vlad went there

    Re: The travelling Vostok, who wants it?

    Oops, sq100, I just checked that out!

    Tipple in British English is a rather gentle word for alcoholic drink. A friendly pub landlord might ask 'What's your tipple?'

    Probably best if he didn't ask a Dutchman that, though :D

    Okay... as requested, Vlad's visit to northern Saskatchewan, Canada.

    I live in a sawmill town, but the mill has been shuttered for the last 6 years. I live about a 1 km from the mill.

    I live about 10 km from Big River in the old town of Bodmin. There is nothing of the old town except some houses. That sign you see in the distance is "KM/hr", lest you think you stepped on to the Autobahn.

    This is our public dock. As you can tell the lake that Big River is named for, Cowan, is still frozen over. People will be ice fishing for awhile yet.

    What? Australia in Big River? Nope. We just have a friend from Australia who owns this shop. Great coffees and lattes at the Billabong, if you want to stop in.

    I didn't stop off for a "tipple", as I believe one of you referred to it as, but here's a pic of our favorite restaurant, Third and Main. Aptly named b/c, well, it's at the corner of Third and Main... I have a bit of a local reputation as a "teetotaler", so no beer muggings for Vlad, sorry. :)

    So that's going to do it for Vlad's northern adventure. He's on his way back to Pennsylvania, and then hopefully to return to his globe-hopping ways.

    Have a good day!
