Many of you know BlairGowrie (BG) as a ruthless moderator here. Others know him as one of the wealthiest land owners in Canada. Others know him as the Squadron leader of the DangerDogz. Most of us know him simply as friend.

With the 7th Anniversary of the forming of the Dangerdogz approaching, I thought I'd share a visit I had with BG.

Earlier this year (ok, at the beginning of the year) I visited the great and feared BG at his winter palace north of Toronto. Long time visitors to this forum will know of his vast wealth and land holdings. This is no myth.

The trout ponds, the tennis courts, golf courses, wine rooms and so on. In fact, suicide bombers in Canada are promised a trip to BG's estate in the afterlife instead of the virgins.

I trekked up to BG's area to deliver a photo collage of his adoring squadmates from around the world. Though way late, I'd thought I'd share some pics with you.

The journey begins in the wintery city of Edmonton...and continues in the wintery city of Toronto.

Canada is a huge country as you can see. It is at least 4 inches across.

Toronto, is of course home of the Angus.

Angus...aka Cold_Gambler...is famous for two things. And reviled for one.

Famous for being one of the founding fathers of the Dangerdogz, and for being the most whipped husband in the Dogz. Reviled for being a lawyer.

Anyway, I met up with Angus downtown Toronto for the picture swap. Angus was kind enough to get the pic done up for free - after threatening to sue the framer for some made-up-on-the-spot tort. Angus, being part-Scot, of course simply pocketed the money we gathered for the pic.

We chose to meet over coffee at a local shop.

We hadn't seen each other for a while, so we had exchanged pics in advance so that we could recognize each other.

Angus:

Angus of course ordered an fair-trade, organically grown, union-picked dark roast. I ordered a chemically treated, subjugated-orphan, child labourer coffee bean picked de-caf.

We discussed politics of course.

Angus' shares his economic vision for Canada:

I explain mine:

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v289/jensenpark/apollo_11_tickertape.jpg

We further discuss the usual.

Kids (his kids used re-usable, environment friendly cloth diapers). We raised ours in disposables made from the fur of unicorns, purchased in cases made with old-growth trees.

Cars: I have 3, and I leave them running around the clock to keep the environment warm. Angus takes public transport and buys carbon offsets for each trip.

Environment: he has a tattoo of Al Gore on his arm. I have a tattoo of the Alberta Oil Sands on mine.

Wives: Angus discusses how beaten and whipped he is - and how much he is afraid of his wife. I discuss how beaten and whipped I am - and how much I'm afraid of my wife.

Common ground at last!!!

Handing over the pic, Angus and I pose for a photo.

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v289/jensenpark/203.jpg

We discuss how it is great to see each other again, and how we miss seeing each other on TS. We promise to keep in touch more in the future. I mention how warm the coffee shop is, and Angus comments that it is warm like the steam baths he visits, and maybe next time we could meet there.

There is an awkward silence and we both look down to avoid eye contact.

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v289/jensenpark/204.jpg

We go outside and both pretend that little conversation never happened.

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v289/jensenpark/205.jpg

Package under my arm...I continue my quest to get to BlairGowrieLand!

Having successfully accomplished the first part of my journey…the meeting with Angus…I move on to complete the mission:

Visit the one known as BlairGowrie and deliver the DangerDogz gift.

I consider the meet up with Angus a success as I made it without getting sued by Angus. A notorious tort-happy lawyer.

The mythical land of BlairGowrie starts about at the edge of Toronto. However, the land is so large that it is about a 2 ½ hour car drive from Toronto to the centre of BlairGowriea.

As I drive, I know I am getting close to the nerve center of BG’s empire: I spy some of the windmills used to generate power for his immense empire:

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v289/jensenpark/206.jpg

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v289/jensenpark/207.jpg

I spy a mail box on the side of the road! Alas, I am almost there.

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v289/jensenpark/211.jpg

Expecting to find his house close, I turn off at the entrance of BG’s driveway and sigh as I realize how large his place is.

His driveway goes forever. I sense what the Nazi’s thought as they invaded Russia. Cold, snow and tundra that stretches forever.

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v289/jensenpark/208.jpg

I travel by what is obviously a dumping ground for BG. Yet, still no house…

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v289/jensenpark/210.jpg

Finally – I sense I am close.

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v289/jensenpark/212.jpg

I pull up to the mansion and am greeted by attack dogs…in the distance I hear their master’s voice bellow a warm greeting: “get him! Attack, attack!”

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v289/jensenpark/214.jpg
http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v289/jensenpark/213.jpg

I am ushered into Castle BG and immediately am welcomed like an old friend. Once I pass through security at his front door.

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v289/jensenpark/265.jpg

Here I am arriving finally at the guest quarters…checking in.

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v289/jensenpark/264.jpg

There is a long walk from the entrance to the actual quarters…

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v289/jensenpark/267.jpg

After settling in, I present BG with the picture from his fellow squaddies.

Jim opens the package...

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v289/jensenpark/220.jpg

evaluates the gift...and the attractiveness of the squad

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v289/jensenpark/219.jpg

Expresses his critical view

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v289/jensenpark/222.jpg

stores the picture in an appropriate place

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v289/jensenpark/223.jpg

I relax with a drink in the guest lounge while I await the Castle’s Lord.

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v289/jensenpark/266.jpg

Jim set me up in Helen’s (his lovely wife) office to fly and was kind enough to pour me a shot of scotch. A ‘shot’ at BG’s is like everything at his residence: oversize. I am poured at least an 8 ounce pour. I comment to Jim that beer steins are not meant as scotch glasses. He calls me a wimp and heads back to flying.

Jim, Helen and I share a great evening of dinner and wine…and then headed to a friend of theirs…we get 10 minutes away and are turned back by white out conditions. The snow was so bad, Jim actually missed the turn-off to his house (after living there 12 years). Or maybe he was just drunk. Hard to tell.

Had a great nights sleep. If you have ever been in a spot where there is zero ambient noise, this was similar. No car noises, no planes overhead, no neighbours…absolute quiet. It was quite something.

Having slept at both Dubbo’s (from the Hellhounds) house and at the house of Painless (UK Dangerdog), I can say it was enjoyably unique at being able to sleep at a Dogz house without the host trying to crawl in and ‘cuddle’. Shudder.

Next morning I get up rested and head to the breakfast nook for a bite.

Then grab a quick snack in the guest nook.

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v289/jensenpark/202.jpg

Jim and Helen give me the grand tour…

The house is magnificent. After seeing pics of it, and hearing about it, for years – it was nice to see it for real.

Much was built by Jim and Helen from wood harvested from the land. Jim will have to describe the type of wood used…but it is spectacular.

How do you describe to people someone like Jim and Helen who built the place from scratch? “Oh, yeah…they are banking execs who harvest wood, cure it, cut it and frame and build a magnificent house themselves…just like all normal banking execs”.

A pic of the famous wireless tower through the stained glass that Helen did (the one that Jim DID NOT break…yet)

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v289/jensenpark/235.jpg

Had some snow overnight. About 8 inches.

My rental car:

How would I get out? Jim says he’ll get out the snow blower. I have visions of Jim pushing a snow blower to clear a few kilometers of driveway.

Should have known better.

“…this is a snow blower!”

from the ponds area…

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v289/jensenpark/258.jpg

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v289/jensenpark/253.jpg

I had Jim hold his walking stick to give you some perspective: he has one pond dug below grade from another pond. Jim will explain why…

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v289/jensenpark/255-1.jpg

This pond has a dock for swimming…unfortunately, the dock is underwater. Why? One of Jim’s eccentricities I guess.

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v289/jensenpark/260-1.jpg

Windmill that pumps water somewhere. I think for the heavy water plant…Jim was asking if I wanted to see the ‘yellow cake’ facility, but I was running short on time.

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v289/jensenpark/257.jpg

The infamous excavator that Jim almost went swimming with…

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v289/jensenpark/250.jpg

“of course I have a 80 foot wireless tower in my back yard…don’t you?”

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v289/jensenpark/259.jpg

Dogz…Bonny Clyde…great dogs.

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v289/jensenpark/256.jpg

Pond…(I think there are 5)

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v289/jensenpark/244.jpg

Guest cottage where I spent the night:

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v289/jensenpark/248.jpg

“What’s in the shed, Jim?” More tractors of course…stupid question.

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v289/jensenpark/245-1.jpg

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v289/jensenpark/246.jpg

Some wood that Jim has prepared. For a gallows or something. In the back, under the tarp, is an old machine that cuts the wood into tongue and groove. Jim can explain better.

Jim and Helen actually lived in this shed/garage for a year while they built the house.

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v289/jensenpark/247.jpg

We go by one of the golf courses (just the Par 3 Exec course…the Links style was too far to walk)

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v289/jensenpark/golf.jpg
http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v289/jensenpark/winter-golf-22.jpg

Tour done, I get in my car and head back to Toronto then home.

Another successful Dogz meet up accomplished.

A special thanks to my dear friend Jim and his lovely wife Helen for putting me up for the night. Wonderful hosts!

Looking forward to visiting in the spring!

Funny, I've only spoken to BG on TS but he looks pretty much just as I pictured him.

I vigorously object to your stereotypical depiction of Canada though, it's completely inaccurate for a summer jaunt to Ontario.

...Needs waaaayyy more snow and ice. Think the 'wall' in 'Game of Thrones' http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

I've traveled around a bit myself to visit squad members, great fun!

Really great to see this,
