Default Texas vs Canada

My son and I are going on a High Adventure Canoe trek through the US boundary waters and into Canada next month. I'm looking for a picture/meme/slogan that I can put onto a shirt or hat that shows Texas' superiority over all things Canada....

Something good natured, that clearly demonstrates Texan bravado.

We are crossing the border in canoes at an uncontrolled access point, and will be camping in a Provencal park. I plan to leave a Texas flag flying in the park while we are there and will probably leave it there when we paddle away.
What have yall got for me?

You could make a T-shirt out of this. Pic says a million words, hehe.


In my experience Canadians are dumbfounded by our freedom to own handguns. Anything relating to all the handguns we have and that our wives have and that our kids have will also be noticed.

The only thing is, when you get there you will realize Texas is a dry desert dump compared to the beauty of that place.. And the fishing is incredible.......so be careful what you make yourself look like there. Don't embarrass us Frank...

Impossible. There is nothing dry or dumpy about Freedom.

A mesquite tree with one of those syrup taps & a bucket tied to it. Texas syrup is #1!

I would suggest you leave all that behind and just enjoy the experience at Northern Tier. The few people you meet on the trek will be less concerned about the shape of your hat than the great experience you have in the wilderness and the effort you make to leave it in as good of shape as you found it. Represent scouting well. Leave the other at home.

What part of Canada? People in Alberta, Saskatchewan, and Nova Scotia generally like Texans from my experience. Quebec, not so much. Quebecois hate everything.

Sounds like a great time. I like the Texas flag idea, but I wouldn't wear a shirt to antagonize them in their Country. I don't believe that would represent us Texans well.

Thanks for the advice and tips!
Just to be clear, this is all light hearted and meant in good fun. No political, or other serious, statements are intended to be made.

DRT, how many times have you done NT, and do you have any tips?

LandRover, did you do the trip with Scouts or on your own? Also, any tips for staying in Quetico?

Truer words have never been spoken. Don't get me wrong, I love that I am FROM Texas, but living up north and raising my kids here is a no brainer compared to the over crowded places in Texas. Granted I am from Lubbock, which is flat and uglier than a lot of TX. Canadians don't hate Americans. They are just dumbfounded at our political **** show.

Enjoy the trip and be careful!

Understood sir. I know it is in PURE fun. A baseball cap will say plenty.......lol!!! All of my trips were 40 to 42 mile circuits with about 12 to 18 portages..........a few were looooong! Never with scouts, I would take customers when I was with BASF and then me and my brother went twice. As you know: Pack Light, GREAT tents are worth it, gets chilly at night, YOU WILL CATCH FISH so don't pack more than the basics for food, BEARS are nosey, WOLVES has no idea what you are, light hiking boots and camp sandals are plenty, the water is cold, PICTURES do the place zero justice, Loons are beautiful, small mouth fishing is WORLD CLASS!
Wow, it is time for me to get back up there. My entry point was Ely..........with a stop at Gander Mountain for the best lures!

I have been to Canada probably 15 times and NEVER one disparaging word, encounter or even smirk! Definitely gotten odder receptions in Utah, Idaho, Wyoming, etc......lol! Quebec folks love that I am from Louisiana originally and speak enough French to get them laughing........mostly Creole but they get the vibe! Cool place for summer jaunts but they can keep their winters for themselves!!!!

We had two Treks in 2017. You'll enjoy it. A lot of paddling and portaging to do. Be sure to listen to your interpreter but don't be afraid to study the map and adjust the route if needed.

Same for me until returning from Eric's place in Quebec last year. We had a layover in Toronto that turned into a cancelled flight. We decided for a night on the town. All was good until the 3am ride back to the airport when the Middle Eastern Uber driver told me that "Americans need to get rid of all their guns". I said a lot of un-Christian things and my Uber rating is no longer 5.0 Stars.

Yall may disown me, but I couldnt care less about fishing. I've tried it dozens of times and its just never been fun for me.
I like going out in boats and sitting on a pier... just dont care at all about fishing. (probably because I suck at it)
Now I do enjoy offshore fishing, but thats about it.

My son loves to fish, so I'll be sure to stock him up on these lures and make sure we get his Canadian fishing license.

I gotta dig around and see if I can find my old TBH hat. I havent seen it in a while. The only other one I have is a memorial one that was put out after ToothDoc passed away. (I think it was him)

I can imagine the comedy when someone from Quebec and a Cajun start speaking French. Especially about cooking nutria, drinking homemade whisky, etc.

My three experiences crossing into Canada have been mostly negative. I think they don't like Americans and Texans especially.
