Woods of Ypres has posted a new tour blog online via Decibel Magazine. An excerpt from the blog follows:

Day 1 Thunder Bay, ON

Any hardworking band with significant mileage under their belt knows that tour is not vacation. Just two hours out of Sault Ste. Marie, the northern Ontario home base for Woods of Ypres, an inexplicable incident with the van’s hood broke the windshield, keeping us off the road for the whole day and forcing the cancellation of the first show. Missing one show is one too many, but some kinds of crises might be expected. They can and will occur, no matter what distance traveled.

“When you get to Winnipeg, you need to go to the water park there,” our talkative French-Canadian tow truck driver advised, “and stand at the bottom of the big waterslide, and chicks in bikinis will whoosh…come right off if it’s a ‘big pair.’ I had the best time of my life in Winnipeg.” Woods would never turn down friendly assistance—especially in those circumstances—but being packed into the cab of his tow truck, the other two guys being pulled along behind in the van, was miserable, knowing we would miss our first show and unsure if we would get to Winnipeg at all. However, as it turns out, moose carcasses found on the highway can still be put to good use, depending on if they were “marshmallowed” by a truck or not. Break down near Wawa, and Ghislain will tell you all about it.

Pushing on overnight to the second date in Winnipeg—the windshield still not repaired, moose standing in the darkness of Highway 17, and rainstorms... No tears here—Woods of Ypres rides.
