Sherman (Tank) Doucette is a harmonica player, vocalist and songwriter from North Battleford, Saskatchewan. He got the name 'Tank' during a 6-month fight for his life in hospital at age 23, after he survived an explosion.

Sherman has over 700 antique harmonicas! View some of them at his online Harmonica Museum.


Karl Lorch, of Spy Hill, began building snowplanes at age 19 in 1929 and created a Canadian legend.  He continued production from his garage until the mid fifties. His propeller-driven sleds helped conquer winter isolation in rural Canada until they became obsolete when all-weather roads appeared in the 1950s. Today, Lorch snowplanes have almost vanished from the Canadian Prairies save for a few parts scattered around farmyards.
Spy Hill,  Saskatchewan, is a community Northeast of Moosomin and Southeast of Yorkton.
The history of this project is well explained at the Western Development Museum.

The people of Spy Hill honoured Mr. Lorch before he died in the 1980s by putting one of his machines on a pilon where it still stands in recognition of his amazing achievement.


Whether is was the Lorch machines (those put together in farm shops) or the factory made machines, like the ones produced by Fudge, they all had the same ski width.

Several different models of Fudge snowplanes were produced at the Fudge factory in Moosomin. For more information on the Fudge Snowplanes, read on...

TransCanada Trail

Trans Canada Trail photo by Gear Junkie


The Trans Canada Trail, officially renamed "The Great Trail" in September 2016, is a cross-Canada system of greenways, waterways, and roadways that stretches from the Atlantic to the Pacific to the Arctic oceans. The trail extends over 24,000 kilometres (15,000 miles); it is now the longest recreational, multi-use trail network in the world. The idea for the trail began in 1992, shortly after the Canada 125 celebrations. Since then it has been supported by donations from individuals, corporations, foundations, and all levels of government. For more information on the Trail,, here's a good read from backpacking.com
