"You who this faint day the High North is luring
Unto her vastness, taintlessly sweet;
You who are steel-braced, straight-lipped, enduring
Dreadless in danger and dire in defeat;
Honor the High North ever and ever,
Whether she crown you or whether she slay;
Suffer her fury, cherish and love her----
He who would rule her must learn to obey.

---Robert W. Service

Waterspyder I reworked Two Roads many years back

“Two roads diverged in a Yellow Wood, and...”
having nailed another checkpoint,
I reset the bezel ring on my compass for the next azimuth, with a slight offset to the left. (short right leg, not political)
I took a bearing, crossed the road and re-entered the woods in my new direction.
“... and THAT has made all the difference”.

A good canoe does not merely travel across a lake or river, it glides along the interface between water and air, making hardly a ripple in passing, and is so silent that it blends with the world.

Jerry Dennis
