From Whither Comest Thou Moniker?

Tons of people have been asking me "Dwayne, what does 'the canoe guy' mean? Isn't that a strange, and even inappropriate (not to mention disquieting) label to slap upon yourself? It has nothing to do with comics or Jonah Hex. Please, pray tell, from whither comest thou moniker?"

It's a long story that can be understood by visiting my other blog that I had long before this one. Everything you need to know is here, just read from the bottom up.

Now ya know.

Holy Guacamole! You have to pay a fee to use a canoe in Oklahoma?

Well, fry me for a doughnut.

Here in lovely Connecticut, we go rafting in innertubes, kayaks and canoes, and nobody bats and eye. The government is too busy trying to up our property taxes to worry about canoes.

Yup, ya have to tag it like a boat or a kayak. Some states (like Missouri, you don't have to tag the boat but you have to tag the motor.)

Geez, I hate to think how much my gunnel-jumping escapade (years ago) would have cost me if Indiana required similar fees!

In California we have pretty strict rules about rafting down rivers and such. Especially down theres in Mexico way
