Going to Winnipeg...maybe?




The above is an obscure reference to a Canadian commercial from way back in 1994(23;P). About a guy who thought he was going to Hawaii but finds out(post takeoff) that he is indeed headed for the heart of the continent. I remember many oh Canuck's blurting, "Goin' to Winnipeg" for years after. An accident, a random change bringing him to the heart....

My Grandmother is planning one last get together as she has terminal cancer. I don't think of it as the last, but why would I question her at this time? Anyways she wants me to be there. So much so that shes willing to front some major gas money to get this poor fat alchemist there. My heart has some deep rooted....roots in Manitoba so returning is exciting in so many ways. I made some friends when I lived there last(1999-2000) and NOW I might get to meet Jake and/or Jim!

Jim, Jake, and Jon in the heart....WOW. Jake wrote about this a while ago in his post Galactic center temple here.

Anyways I typed in a direction search on Google Earth to see what path I may take to the Heart. Low and behold the first choice is one that made me feel like I'm in for a life changing event. Here's a zoom of the path...

The coordinates to "Indian head" ( 50° 0'38.20"N 110° 6'48.32"W )

Many people think it looks like and Ipod earbud in his ear. I dunno. I find myself going back to it. Even using it as a profile pic on Facbook or msn.
