Nautical memories

The summer of 2005 was one of my best so far. I spent about 10 weeks of it in remote northern Saskatchewan in a geology fly-in camp (no roads or other people except the ones flown in with you). There were never more than 18 people in camp at a time and ususally there was just the 12 of us on the field crew. So, no radio, no TV, no movies, no video games, very limited music. But one guy brought a guitar and another guy was played as well, so if we were in camp one or the other of them was always playing. I have a long standing love of the Tragiically Hip so when ever they would take requests, thats what I asked for. One day the guitars owner discovered Nautical Disaster and our two guitar players began learning it. For the next 3 weeks or so all three of us (I provided the correct vocals) wandered around camp randomly bursting into Nautical Disaster, in the (outdoor) shower, the cook tent, our tents, on traverse, sitting on the dock fishing (they fished, I hid from the fish, but I'm sure the fish must have learned the song by the time we left). It was a really great summer, and part of it was the bonding and fun of learning Nautical Disaster. Thanx for the great music!
