  1. Hey guys!
    Isn’t the Canadian comedian who played ‘Red Green’ real name Greg Smith? Enquiring mind want to know!!!????
    I loved the show as usual.

  2. Hey Oldbear
    Near miss, “Red’s” real name is Steve Smith. (Or so they say??) Haha!
    Loved that show too and would love to go ride some trails around Red Green’s home base at Possum Lodge! :0)


    • Beware this type of thing might go to Sven’s head. Soon he’ll be mentioning duck tape and secret weapons.
      Anyway Happy Thanksgiving from the Oldbear clan in the Missouri Ozarks.
      (That’s Oldbear [Fred] Mama Bear[Sue] and Cubby [sean])
