route 117


On July 22nd 1793 Alexander Mackenzie completed the first known overland crossing of North America by a European. 

Alexander Mackenzie was born on the Isle of Lewis in 1764. At 10 years old Alexander emigrated to Canada with his family. At 15, he began working for the North West Company.

Alexander Mackenzie at 25 was a fur trader he combined ambition, resolve and arrogance and grew bored with life in a North West Company trading post. Mackenzie became convinced that Cook’s River, in present-day Alaska, could provide a water route from the Atlantic Ocean to the Pacific. Such a route — the mythical Northwest Passage — would provide a gateway to the vast trading markets of the Orient.

In 1789, Mackenzie’s crew — which included French-Canadian voyagers, his wife and several others — paddled off in a birchbark canoe from Fort Chipewyan in central Canada. Other canoes, navigated by Indian hunters and interpreters, followed behind.

Over 100 days later, however, Mackenzie’s entourage arrived back at the fort with details of another route to the Arctic Ocean, not the elusive Pacific. Though this first trip aided in mapping the northern regions of the continent, Mackenzie remained determined to find the “Western Sea.”

Therefore, on May 9, 1793, Mackenzie, with nine others, packed into a 25-foot canoe at Fort Fork along the Peace River for a second voyage. This time, he succeeded, and announced his arrival on a rock near Bella Coola near the Pacific……..

“Alexander Mackenzie, from Canada, by land, the twenty-second of July, one thousand seven hundred and ninety-three.”

Mackenzie became the first European north of Mexico to reach the Pacific ocean on an overland route, beating, as well, the American explorers Meriwether Lewis and William Clark who arrived at the coast in 1805.

Without the guidance of Indians, Mackenzie would have been unlikely to reach the Western Sea. While crossing the Peace River watershed to the Fraser, they suggested to proceed overland, instead of continuing on the hazardous Fraser River. Mackenzie returned with the westward route mapped 117 days later.

I’ve been trying to hatch a shiny Deerling using the Masuda Method some time now. Then I heard that Deerling could be found on Route 117. Intrigued, I flew over there.

Sure enough the Season Pokemon was there. I clicked it just to look. 

And the search level was 389! That’s the exact number of Deerling I have ever had in my possession. But just to test it I hatched another one. 

Then I checked the DexNav again.

 390 this time! This means that the DexNav levels up based on how many times you encounter the Pokemon! I don’t know what this means for shiny hunting, but it is a step forward in what we know about this puzzling little machine. Please signal boost this so that all may hear. Thank you. 


So, the day is finally here…

I am eternally indebted to one of my bestest friends Nabila for making the photoset above, she captured the beauty and subtle grace of my wife perfectly, but more importantly she is perfect.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank Kyoto Animation for giving me many reasons to cry this Valentine’s Day coughmatsuokarincoughcough. A thank you and kisses to everyone who believed in me, I couldn’t have become super powerful enough to destroy planets and make it to the top without you guys. 
But more importantly, thanks to all my followers for putting up with spams of weird things, and my rants in my tags and such. I’m always trying to improve my blog for the better and you guys following me and telling me nice and supportive things always makes me happy, you guys are the true heros not some nerd like me. 

Wishing everyone a happy, chocolate-filled Valentine’s Day, packed with cool space mecha fights and moe anime girls! ♡

–your fleet captain, Kiki

CLOSED STARTER: rosesliverpenrp

Hannah loved to travel, especially to other regions. There was always something new and exciting to see in such foreign places as well as meeting new people and pokemon. But for all her love, she still needed to travel home.

Walking down the familiar Route 117 on her way to Manville city, she beams cheerfully as memories of her adventures in her home region, Hoenn. She had been a mere 18 when she had collected all of her badges. Though she wasn’t strong enough to dare challenge the champion, she had a desperate urge to travel across the world.

With a wave from her parents, she had set out on this very route to travel the world and now, two years later, she was returning. And she had changed. Though her red hair was still in the tangled mess it always was in, her body had grown hard and fit from such walking, giving a sense of natural beauty no makeup could replicate. A traveler with simply a strap on bag, the clothes on her back, and a red glove on her right hand.

Spotting someone in the distance, she smiled as she hoped it was one of her friends, though she hardly doubted that would be the case. Still, it was best to simply say hello when in range.

I wanted to make this follow forever for my blog’s birthday but I couldn’t wait! All of you are my favourite and the ones that make my dash what it is :) Some also became my friends and make my day brighter whenever we talk!

Bolded: The blogs I like the most.
