"you Have Poured Whiskey Into A Cowboy Boot And Then Dipped The Boot In A Glacier Fed Stream For Mix (Optional)"

Recommended Posts

The last time I was in a bush camp (1982 ..SEBJ ) the tavern was open 7am to 9am and 7pm to 9 pm depending of what shift you were on.........but I do remember some people of taking advantage of both.

 

Sorry Elvis, but SEBJ/HQ camps can't be considered "camps". These are veritable villages, complete with bar/pub/disco and all of the amenities one can imagine : post office, library, convenience store(where you can buy booze), credit union, travel agent, massage parlor (the legit kind, or so I'm told.) EM-1 even had a full sports hall complete with a full-size gymnasium, an indoor hockey arena and a five-lane bowling alley for Pete's sake !!! :blink:

Maybe now, but the SEBJ camps in the 70's were crap, HQ camps ++. It also depended if you were in a construction camp or an exploration camp.

Yup, no kidding Elvis. I don't remember massage parlours, libraries, etc at places like NBR1. Having said that, seeing one of TQ's 205 pull into camp with the whole back full of cases of beer to stock the canteen was always a welcome sight! I don't remember any of the HQ camps having a canteen, but they were generally better camps. Places like GB2 &3, and over on the Romaine River were better camps than that one just outside of LG2. Can't remember the name. Lac Denise maybe?
