Big Country with a “Big House” History: Kingston Peniteniary

It’s all in the names. When first entering Kingston Penitentiary along King Street West, one enters through the north gate; a true testament to British and Crown authority dating from 1833. You can feel the overwhelming weight of history in all eleven and a half acres of the prison; the vast significance of the structure looking down on you from ten-metre-high solid limestone walls (complete with guard towers once housing 24-hour sentries armed with rifles).

Your One Stop Winter Supply Shop

Whether we like it or not, winter is coming. Let’s be real, George R. R. Martin 100% stole this phrase from Canada.

However, as Canadians we’ve also learned that winter isn’t so bad – so long as you know how to handle it.

The ’47 Ford Truck

‘The truck was in pretty rough shape to say the least with a lot of rust and had a different frame and a different engine underneath. About a month later I was out in the Guelph area and came across another identical ’47 Ford and you can appreciate that being a 1947 model, it was also going to be in rough shape, but I liked that it had a solid original frame, so I bought this truck as well.
