I wore mine in Victoria, BC...but since I was alone for my run...and camera batteries were dead...I have no pics...

Does it count if we wear our shirt in a city that is already inhabited by maniacs, but not where we live? For example, Dani and I are going to Halifax in a couple weeks...but live in Oromocto.

No I was thinking more of a maniacs-from-outatown sort of thing.

Where's Brampton, anyway? To me, the west end is Skydome.

Hmmm... what if you don't have a "hometown"? (military wife, RCMP daughter, AirForce granddaughter... ) My home is where I hang my heart! Even if just for a very short stay!

I live in Maugerville, but have worn my shirt in Oromocto and soon will in Fredericton. But that would be very much like the T.O. discussion, on a much smaller scale... :P

Oh! and I wore it in Beaver Harbour, NS - but there's no pic... :?

Yeah Trish, I'd have to say "the greater Fredericton area" would be our "hometown" I'd say anyplace that is considered a local phone call from your home is not "another city or town"

Mine has travelled quite a bit.

I ran with it in London, Dublin, Geneva and Vienna. It just went for a visit in Budapest and Paris. Next time I go somewhere, I will try to have a picture taken.

I don't think CAW gets to make the rules!!!! I have had enough of rules really. I don't run in either Bedford or Sackville, I do run across the bridge into (Dartmouth). So if i am there running, i just may snap off a photo. :twisted: :twisted: :twisted:

Well, my shirt has been to just outside Paris -- Ontario that is!! I wore it at the Run for the Toad at the Pinehurst Conservation Area last October! This is me with my friend, Christine. (Too bad I look like such a dork)

Well, Brendan, you do what you like...but technically you will still be in the HRM (Halifax Regional Municipality for the folks that don't know).... :wink:

And...I am not making the rules...Ironsides is....I am just enforcing them.

i missed out on trying the local beers, now that you point it out... i meant to have them when i went out on the town, but the guy we were staying with and his firefighter friends were buying us RedBull & vodka, and shooters... i guess i forgot...

but the corona there was just as good as it is here. and their local wines were lovely. i had a few tastings at the wineries.
