4 Hours In Tulita

27 Aug

Me and Tim Querengesser are in Tulita, NWT – hometown of Naked Gun funnyman, Leslie Nielsen. Unfortunately, there is no monument or statue of him in his honour. We know this because we’ve been wandering around town for 4 hours now. Just taking a break before dinner. Not a lot to do here on a Friday afternoon but it’s quite a charming place – beautiful scenery and bustling with locals walking or four-wheeling around. The big hangout is the Northern Store. It is also the bank, coffee shop, home materials depot and the general meeting place. Anyway, I like it here.

    Thanks Pat for the update and lovely photos… wow, what an experience. Also…had no idea that Leslie N was from there…knew he was from Canada, but wow, imagine growing up there and becoming so famous… pretty f-ing trippy. Wild.
