1984 & 2020

I recently shared this on facebook & figured why not share here also... A photo of me in 1984, and a photo of me in May ‘20, in the same canoe, and in the same location (which I’d rather not be shared publicly, thanks).

That's pretty cool Justin. Hopefully more people will share their time traveling photos in your thread.

I think I know where that is. The backdrop looks awful familiar...

Thanks Pauly.
Yeah it was a little difficult to get the same angle being alone this time around & trying to balance my cellphone on a rock with only a 10 second timer. I didn’t really think it through all the way.

In 4 more years maybe I’ll try again for a 40 years later photo.

Thanks Mike.
Actually the fish from ‘84 I think is a Chubb or perhaps a White Sucker..?
This time around was a big ol’ fancy brook trout.

OK, I'll bite.

My first fish. A pumpkinseed sunfish, 1969



A few years later, same pond.

Oh man... Unfortunately for whatever reason I’m unable to view your photos.
Maybe you can ask Carol to share them on facebook where it’s easier...? 😉

Excellent!

There are many comparisons between 1984 and 2020 these days. Nice to have one of em that makes me smile !

Not only are the fish different, but the canoe is different. The second photo looks like a Scanoe where the first looks like a soon to be retired canoe. You had better check with George Orwell next time, Justin.

Ha yeah the “Blue Goose” has been re-patched & re-painted several times over the years. In the first photo I’m actually sitting backwards in the stern seat. I couldn’t quite fit my fat ass in that same position this time around so I had to settle for the bow seat instead.

Justin:

My father-in-law ran the Blue Goose Tavern in Clemens(just outside of Whitehall). It was located just off Route 9 along Blue Goose Road that forked to the left just after crossing South Bay bridge. The Blue Goose burned to the ground five years after he sold it.
He was one of the first to make hoagies and got his bread from a bakery in Rutland.

Thanks for sharing Justin. Photos tell a great story by themselves.

Thanks Ed.
Bummer that it burned down.
I always thought the blue goose was a cool name.
My old man used to do a lot of white water canoe races back in the day. I remember as a kid watching from shore as they ran the rapids and waiting for the Goose to come by.
