I'm having some issues uploading the videos. Some are not completely uploading so I'm having to re-upload them.  >:(

I found out what the problem is. YouTube has a stabilize feature that I was using to take out some of the "bumpiness" of the videos. This feature is not working properly all the time and cutting the videos short. Therefore, I will no longer be using the stabilize feature.  ::)

The carriage belongs to our fearless leader Charlie Miller .... but the barrel mounted on it belongs to our group jointly. 

Charlie is the chap directly behind the gun with a finger blocking only one ear ... he is a retired artillery officer who is pretty much deaf in his right ear from that ... so he only protects his "good" ear ... ;)

That would be cool ... although this gun weighs around 800 pounds as it sits .... takes a minimum of three healthy men just to load it onto a trailer .... :(

... and I wouldn't want to think of what my gas mileage would plummet to if I had to haul it to Nebraska ...  :o

Crossing the border would be entertaining.  Even disassembled and strapped onto a trailer it would be obvious what you were hauling.  ANYTHING TO DECLARE?

We got that barrel from Hern Iron Works in Idaho - https://hernironworks.com/cannons-and-mortars/.   We had it shipped Coutts, Montana, on the border.  It was an interesting trip to pick it up ... drove into the US and then back a few blocks to re-enter Canada, once we had it loaded.  (Was going to say "loaded and secured" but the crate was strapped to the pallet it was on, and gravity alone was more than sufficient to secure the pallet in place on the rubber box liner!)

However, our crossing back into Canada was truly "priceless" ...

"How long have you been in the United States?"

"About an hour and a half ..."

"Do you have anything to declare?"

"Just a cannon barrel."

"Um ... er ... please pull around there, park and come inside ..."


We then got assigned to a middle-aged female agent who was convinced this couldn't possibly be legal.  We assured her that the barrel was really nothing more than a big, heavy lawn ornament in the condition it was in (... i.e. touch hole not yet drilled ...) and that even once it was rendered fully functional it would be classed as a signalling device, and would be completely legal.  She talked to just about everyone else in the facility (quite a few, this being a large, 24-hour border crossing), was on the computer for the longest time, phoned her superiors in Ottawa and also the Canadian Firearms Centre administered nationally by the RCMP (headquarters in Miramichi, New Brunswick) and finally came and summoned us back to the counter (we had been sitting down for most of this time) and, with a rather pinched look on her face, asked: "How much did it cost?" ... so she could do the paperwork for collecting the Federal Goods and Services Tax of 5% - there were no import duties, of course, because it was produced in North America ...
 ;D

Just the story of the first border crossing was entertaining!

Did you reply "just a cannon barrel", with a straight face, or that little Rattlesnake Jack smile we've all grown to love?

Great story!
