Camp Bongopix – 80s Retro Camping

This is kind of interesting: Up by Algonquin Park (Ontario, Canada’s oldest provincial park, quite historical), there’s a new business, Camp Bongopix, that rents out cabins, and their theme is to recreate the 1980s cottage experience. They have rooms with N64 consoles and VHS equipment, and things look decorated in a pretty convincing 80s style. It’s a

Cinnamon Scrambled Eggs

I invented a new dish yesterday, although someone may have already done it. I’m not googling to check. The dish is cinnamon scrambled eggs. I was going to write out the recipe, but what it really boils down to is that you make scrambled eggs, but you put cinnamon in there. You have to stick

Ice Life Hack

Jeff’s Maps

I found a very interesting business yesterday, Jeff’s Maps. It seems to be a one person business, run by a guy named Jeff of course, that sells really good maps to a few hotspots in Ontario, including two of the big provincial parks (Algonquin and Killarney). He designs the maps himself, and adds a bonus information
