EIGHTIES GARDIN TNT - INTRODUCTION

In the mid eighties, my wife and I purchased a summer cottage beside one of the thousands of lakes that dot the landscape of North western Ontario.  Loon Lake - yep with real Loons - is a beautiful spot, about forty miles from where we were living in Thunder Bay.  It was about that same time, unbeknownst to me, that this little used Gardin TNT entered the storage stage of its life.  And of equal interest, the storage place was less than a quarter mile from my new/old summer cottage. The funny thing is, the original owner of the Gardin I and  got to know each other, back in the eighties when I first started spending my summers at the cottage.  He was my next door neighbour.

The Gardin TNT was the second nicest Gardin found, from the cosmetics point of view.  The other well preserved, in fact mint might be a better word, was my Gardin 400 that I stumbled upon while yard sailing one Saturday morning.  At any rate, the TNT featured here had seen very little use and then been stored carefully for the balance of its lonely life.
