You could say we predicted the pandemic.
Okay, not really. But while flipping through our archives, we did find a surprising number of stories that were pandemic-friendly. It was a striking reminder that, for us, home has always been importanteven when we werent forced to stay in.
For example, there's50 Reasons to Stay Home This Summer by Jim Sutherland in our May 1992 issue, including fresh corn, straight from the field in every province, feeling the earth shake at Skookumchuck Narrows on the Sunshine Coast, the 200-plus flavours at (the still churning) MacKay's Ice Cream just north of Calgary, andweirdlywatching kangaroo rats scamper around in Osoyoos.
there'sthe June 2001 feature on the best picnic-proof recipes (Roasted Fingerling Potato Salad, Smoked Chicken Salad Sandwiches and Grilled Mediterranean Vegetable Wraps made the list) and the roundup of local celebs championing their favourite Western destinations in the same issue (Rick Hansen was spreading rumours about Gossip Island, B.C.).
