    Careful now. Canadians sometimes have trouble living up to that reputation. -hehe-

    Incidentally and FWIW, Americans in some contexts are capable of playing extremely well with each other. It can be rather inspirational if you ask me.

    Careful, there's a newfoundland based company I deal with professionally that always seems to blame the customer first

    I agree some Canadians are not as friendly but most of us are.

    Can’t explain the newfies though.

    Nobody can explain Newfies. You have to see it to believe it, and even then...

    Capers understand Newfies (not matter how politically incorrect that sounds).


    Guys! The American buddies are not going to understand this Canadian version of 'us versus them'. Those that do might conclude that Canadians are not that much different from... Americans.

    Agreed. We are not that much difference. And also have similar mindsets.

    Ah yes, I should have clarified. It is less "us vs them" conflict, and more "I don't really know how to describe them to you...". Newfies are awesome, just different.

    Is it bad that I have to back pedal a bit? The company isn't in newfoundland, they're in Nova Scotia. Don't know why I had Newfie on the brain.

    Capers, Newfies, Bluenosers, Cajuns, Frenchies, Frogs... in Eastern Canada you can never be too careful these days.

    Joking aside, Nova Scotians are some of the friendliest, most hospitable Canadians you could possibly hope to meet. It is also an incredibly beautiful province to tour. If you have yet to tour the Cabot Trail that navigates the edges of Cape Breton, do it.

    Nova Scotia has been on my list for long time..... Somehow need to couple that with a boundary waters canoe trip.... cause it's a damn long drive from here.

    Minnesota-Ontario border to Nova Scotia is a 3-day hard drive. Two separate vacations perhaps?

    Wanna take a canoe on the wild side? Canoe the lower north shore of the St. Lawrence River/Gulf towards the border with Labrador. Beyond Natashquan you run out of roads. Wild. Never done it but have always wanted to. Atlantic salmon, sea-run brook charr, lots of other critters.

    I have canoed tripped the Pacific Ocean though. Specifically the Gwaii Haanas in Haida Gwaii. By comparison, the Gulf of St. Lawrence would be a calm piece of cake. Though with surface temperatures near 2C in some parts, a survival jacket is still a must.

    I still remember this one my grandmother told when I was a kid...

    How does a newfie tie his shoe?
    [Puts right foot up on a chair.]
    [Bends down and ties left shoe.]

    Ah, the good old days before political correctness and over-sensitivity drove the lowly but good-natured sensus humorus to extinction...

    I used to go to NScotia & NBrunswick for work but all I remember was the bar crawls. Everytime, till almost blackout. The facility managers would then somehow get me back to the hotel safe.. Those Canadians can drink, eh!?
    This is on the bucket list park tour! Gonna take some planning but hopefully next summer..

    not really standoffishness (LOL is that a word?? IT IS NOW!) it's more the fact that people don't want to listen and become jerks about it.... especially after reading the elite rompess room. LOL what fun that was, literal fun, and amusing... People claiming they "suck up cat dust" which isn't a thing (unless you have a sentra where the cats were literally built in to the exhaust manifold, stupid nissan)... I've been around nissan & their motors over 15 years now... I've built a couple VG motors and VQ motors... My VG motor is on E85 pushing 500+ whp.... but yet... people want to act like that... "sucking up cat dust" that's never happened to any other VQ motor... ever... and I've been around those since the 350z debut in '03... literally a million of those motors... never happened before. I got really tired of that mantra being pushed as fact when no one was posting cylinder wall pics or providing any evidence of it... people spending 400+ dollars on cats they don't necessarily need. I thought i made it pretty obvious with my low cost LED light sales I was here for the community, and to help as much as possible, but apparently some were blind to that... so it's w/e. I'll stay on the Z forums discussing high HP VG and VQ builds and stick with the xterra snapchat group we started, which is awesome. lol I guess it is standoffishness (new word.. call webster :) ). heh. good to see and chat with you too though Terry D!
