Getting ready!

A while back I bought a second hand canoe from a friend. I was thinking of getting a nice lightweight one, but the budget just isn’t allowing that right now. So here I am with this new-to-me canoe! A friend had asked me if I had checked yet to see if it floats. Of course… Continue reading Getting ready!

And now for something entirely different.

This blog was originally started to motivate people with physical and mental disabilities. I think this counts perfectly because last night I attended a show in Brantford where two people spoke about the challenges they face with brain injury. I had seen Melanie’s show at a local comedy night before, and already knew she’s hilarious.… Continue reading And now for something entirely different.

Geocaching fail

After waiting months to come out of my long winter hibernation, it seemed fitting to snag some geocaches to have a nice excuse to get out on the trails again.

I’m not really a history buff myself, but I have to admit, it was really, really cool… Continue reading Canadian Canoe Museum

Wolf Lake

It’s been a relatively quiet summer; at least as far as any writing goes. I’ve been enjoying tagging along to help hide some paddles for the Paddle in the Park Contest. It’s been a blast! But obviously I haven’t been able to share any info about any trips until after the paddles were found. This… Continue reading Wolf Lake
