(Strip Number 155, Original Publication Date, 27 July 1981)
Panel 1: We see the Pattersons huddled together on the vermin-infested couch; John reminds them that it's their last night there and that they have to admit that they've been a real family.
Panel 2: He then declares that it takes an adventure like this to keep them together.
Panel 3: As he warms his hands in front of the woodstove (which is the sole source of heat), Mike blurts out that it's the only way to keep from freezing to death.
Summary: Since it's fairly warm in Sioux Lookout in July, the idea that the Pattersons had to huddle around a woodstove to keep from dying of hypothermia is obviously due to one of two things. Either Lynn is pandering to the stereotype that Canada is a land of ice and snow or she simply hates camping. In any event, I don't think that the locals will give her any sort of award for promoting it as a tourist destination.
