A Tip of the Hat to our buddy Gerard!

I was going through GoogleCar screen grabs I forgot I did almost 2 yrs ago.

I GoogleCar drove to "The Curve" and then I hit the frontage road and caught our buddy Gerard in Action!  RIP my friend!

Wow......that is so cool Mike. 8) The Province should put a marker there describing Gerard's activities. :)

That is awesome IST. Way to go getting a shot of him in action. It's little things like this that remind me of why it's all worth it. To anybody else, this would look like an average picture. But it gives me a glimpse inside a man and his inner element, doing what he loved. Thanks for sharing.

A couple years ago the thought popped into my head...."find his spot on GoogleCar"  and that's what I came up with! :)

Here are a few more, with the address, so you guys can go check it out yourself on the map.  It's times like this when I really appreciate GoogleCar.

It took me a second to figure out what you meant by GoogleCar lol, I typically refer to it as street view. Thanks for the address too IST, last time we discussed this iconic spot I saved a shop nearby, but now that I've figured out how to save exact coordinates on the map I have it permanently marked on my google maps. So I really appreciate your work on this. Definitely gonna make the trip up there eventually.

It's funny, seeing him wading through the weeds would normally be a cause for concern to anyone else, but there's no place I'd rather be. It's the perfect spot. Glad Gerard found it.

Also in case anyone else needs help, finding it, here's a direct go-to link:
