STAGE 3
 
Not as young, strong, or caraazy as I used to was.  I found out I could continue this annual trek, without the mosquitos, gnats, bears, heavy backpacks/canoes to carry...nor bogs to watch out for  :hysterical: on a "virtual" trip, with the miracles of technology! 
I DO love computers!
 
Now before you click on this link (always THINK before you click on a link)...an explanation.
 
This first page is fluff, but it I am starting you out with this link :
 
http://www.quietjourney.com/index.html
cuz they play the sound of a loon bird when the opening page loads...

(party talk) a familiar, favorite sound to hear when you are camping in this area. 

Once there, click on the guy paddling the canoe icon, for the "virtual trip" 

There are a few 360 panaorama's (short java applets...so hopefully you have removed your old java and have the updated to Java 1.5.0_07)...the sunset ones are  :thumbsup:

But when ya got time, join me on Trip#1 (slide show) and you will share with me what I have seen many times on one of these "real" annual trips.
It doesn't even take too long on dial-up.
 
And a parting thought to leave with you all:
"If future generations are to remember us with gratitude rather than contempt, we must leave them more than the miracles of technology.  We must leave them a glimpse of the world as it was in the beginning, not just after we got through with it."
-President Lyndon B. Johnson      on signing the Wilderness Act, 1964

Ripley, I searched high & low for those blue bouncing smilies today and couldn't fine them anywhere.  Maybe GR@PH;<'S will have better luck.  I can assure you, a four-balloon rating by Mitch is as good as it gets!

That OK...those OLD balloons and some other forum's tradition.  Someday maybe will will have a tradition like that at LzD, but for now we got plenty of smilies floating around this forum, and we are well on our way establishing our own Landzdown "style" heading in to year 2!!!!!!  :Yahoo:

Got their attention, eh? Those loon calls are a treat to hear  :thumbsup:  I think the only movie they were heard much in was that Jane Fonda/Henry Fonda one...On Golden Pond.
So you checked out a few sights of my annual camping destination...well, if you happen to know anyone living in Minnesota  :roll: you might want to ask and see if they have taken a trip up to the BWCA.  Even if they not the camping sorta person, it is a beautiful area to tour...for our state anyways  :lol:

Your post about bouncing balloon smilies got me thinking that I had one saved on my harddrive,from the OLd Lavasoft support  days.

Tarnak deserves a hand!  That which was lost is now found

Except I did something goofy with it -- It was my first smilie addition.  I'm going to see if I can do a fixie-uppie.  :)
