My  band boys, Robbie and John, are on their way to the northernmost settlement in Canada  to play for the troops at Canadian Forces Station Alert

The base is on the northern tip of Ellesmere Island – latitude 82.5°N – just 834 kilometres (518 mi) from the North Pole.

Look how far away from the Island it is.  Farther than my blogging buddies out on the west coast!

So far that even Google can’t find the way . . . (Google Map, you disappoint me!:)

 

Just think . . . only 500 or so miles from the North Pole!

Which has me wondering – who are they really going to visit??

I know they said they were going up North to play for the troops,

but,

we all know who else lives up there  . . .

I’m looking forward to the pictures and the stories when they get home!

Happy weekend!

with love,
