Fundy take on a traditional stag

Friends of ours hosted a uniquely Bay of Fundy-themed stag party last week: mud sliding and river rafting the tidal bore on the Shubenacadie River. I've known lots of people who've done this adventure for no reason but it's more profound as the framework for a ritualistic event such as a stag. Something kinda testosteroneish about fellas pushin' each other around in the mud and throwin' each other overboard. Typical of many stags, the event was captured on camera, so I'm pleased to share these rare glimpses of this Fundy-style, pre-nuptial male bonding ritual. Dude: the flying mud slidin' man is awesome - Thanks guys!!

P.S. that's not chocolate milk they're in - it's the silty, warm Shubenacadie River!

This was a great way to kick off our stag. Also, the alcohol permitted (BYOB) and free all-you-can eat BBQ afterwards was great! I highly recommend it and can't wait to do it again.

I love that pick of us rescuing Jason out of the water. This was a great time, can't wait to do it again.
