It's not over.

Not even close.

Shortly after Sir Willson ManCave's epic adventures were chronicled by the Men of Evergreen...this note and picture showed up at the Welcome Centre:

IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT REGARDING
WILSON

In the form of a note received earlier today -

...and so, this strangely beloved Willson-creature has indeed fallen into the hands of the one evil lord capable of his destruction.

But, this weirdo lord, unbeknownst to all but his closest minions, is secretly a master of 'both' the riddles of iron, the mysteries of the healing of all things dead, and micro-electronics - an "iron doctor" ... one could say. Alas, one day this "Iron Doctor" was advised and bewitched, through means of strong coffee, by his friend and peer, a maiden of iron curiously known by those who love her as Jogee? ...Jogee? Anyway, Jogee encouraged the doctor to "lighten-up" and now the doctor has oddly taken pity upon this Willson-creature who, …

The Life and Times of Sir Willson ManCave As told by The Real Men of Evergreen Willson was a real Caribou, a majestic Caribou, in fact. He once roamed the wild, but was killed in a tragic hunting accident…the body was never recovered, but his head was… The real story begins with Dalhousie Youth Group.

What to do?  The thought of leaving him outside for the next three weeks was complicated by the cold fall nights.  Trying to ignore him was not working either, so we Googled skunk and dog.  There are a lot of suggestion…
