We are again having to take a short bypass on our planned writing journey; this time to a place that’s, according to their Facebook page, about 148 beer stores north of Toronto, Ontario (which, for the benefit of the less-geographically aware reader, is in Canada).
It’s a crazy place, where duct tape is more truly the coin of the realm than loonies, but we’re going to try to explain it all today...and in the effort we may even learn about a few things that really matter, like the unimportance of importance, and the kind of quality of life that comes from having a junk pile and a sense of adventure.
So grab the bug spray, Gentle Reader, because it’s time to visit Possum Lodge.
“You want to make it two inches -- or, if you're working in centimeters, make sure it's enough centimeters for two inches.”
Possum Lodge itself is in the remote north of Canada (right next to Possum Lake), but Lodge members live all over the place.
So how do you spot a Lodge member?
You’ll often find them out in the shed, sorting through the pile of junk, looking for a part...but you might find them at the auction, looking to buy a used police car, or out on the lake, fishing.
Lodge members typically have been with the spouse for long enough
