In john's teenage years, he and his best friend worked on a farm picking ground apples and chopping fire wood. some of the author's best times growing up were spend fishing and trolling with his grandfather at Georgian Bay. It was to be out on the water, even if no fish were caught. About twenty years ago, John wrote the first episode of the series.
