Tami! Called out- damn your right no canoe on "end of the world" I had it mixed up with that other french piss. What can i say, not a fan of that stuff :-) Haha I did get the translation right at least, hopefully those camels got filters.
The word “Maudite” refers here to the Legend of “Chasse-Galerie” a tribute to the early lumberjacks of Nouvelle-France. The legend tells of eight daring woodsmen who, during winter, yearned to be home for the Holidays. They conjured up the Devil and all of them pledged their soul in return for flying them in their canoe to their village. As they sailed across the moonlit sky, one of them managed to free himself from the pledge by invoking the name of God, which caused the flying canoe to come crashing down to earth.
It was Old Fernie Beer in cans that we bought from the package store in Radium Hot Springs to take back to the A-frame tourist lodge in Edgewater after we finished drinking at the National Park Hotel bar. We were not experienced beer drinkers, just pretty drunk from free beers the locals bought us in return for fighting a lame fire out in the damp woods.
