Phil finds to his chagrin that others have also come to his dream spot and put up motels and so on and so forth.

(Strip Number 1059, Original Publication Date, 17 July 1986)

Panel 1: Now that they're about 6 miles away from Parry Sound, Phil tells John to turn left when they reach a dirt road four miles ahead.

Panel 2: He goes on to tell John that he's gonna love this spot because back when he was there last in the mid seventies, it was virgin territory and nothing but bush.

Panel 3: Before John can yell "HEY! PHRASING!!", they come to what used to be Phil's paradise and is now a bustling tourist spot with motels, bars, condos and so on. Phil reacts by suggesting that perhaps it's changed a bit since then.

Summary: As I said yesterday, I thought that this arc was going to be a sort of echo of Jim getting his BVDs in a bunch because he didn't feel like admitting that everyone knew about 'his' fishing spot. I'd expected Phil to spend the trip grousing about how The Man should have consulted him before developing HIS paradise.
