The big escape

Well, I've been off the internet for a bit, busy making the leap back to Canada for a little summer vacation. Nice was getting so hot before we left... and I'm so glad to be back in Ottawa for the most lovely time of year.

Two days ago, we went running on a path through the woods and met a man who had just seen a bear. He was so scared that he'd called 911 -- which was unnecessary, but helped me give the Professor a great little clichéd re-introduction to my country.

We're preparing for a little "camping sauvage" trip, as the Prof calls it. I haven't been since I was a teenager, but I'm trying to look confident when I tell him how we'll deal with the bears when there's no 911 to call.
