Depression and Social Media

A friend of mine shared a very poignant video with me this morning. It’s a smidge long, but I felt compelled to watch it in its entirety once he started speaking. I’ve alluded to how I feel about this before, but I’m starting to think my focus on the blog was not what I’d originally… Continue reading Depression and Social Media

It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year!

No I don’t mean Christmas… or winter. I mean the time of year when camping season is over and gear starts to go on sale! I love shopping for camping gear. It’s not that I skimp on everything, but I really love it when I get a good deal on something. Don’t you? Here’s a… Continue reading It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year!

Chuck it ball

My aim is awful. Beyond awful. There’s been times I’ve tossed and tossed and tossed my rope until I was exhausted… and then just accepted that my food wasn’t hung high enough.  On my last trip I found this ball in the water and it’s been helping tremendously! What do you use to toss your… Continue reading Chuck it ball

Challenges and benefits

I’ve been having fun lately tinkering with videos.  I’m not really sure what people like… Videos?  Pictures?  Text?  I’m just going with what I like doing, and I’m hoping that it’s helpful somehow.  I plan on doing my thing regardless, being authentic and whatnot; but I always welcome feedback šŸ˜Š (and questions! I’m working on… Continue reading Challenges and benefits

How to bathe in the backcountry when it’s cold out

Are you ever out there a while when it’s cold and just can’t fathom going for a swim?  This is what I do… What do you do?  Do you have any good tips? 

Hike to the Crack

I think this post may just be all about the pictures. In my last post I decided to do something different and I featured each campsite I stayed on in a video. The hike to the Crack was so pretty, I’m not sure pictures or a video would do it justice. And besides, it was… Continue reading Hike to the Crack

A week in Killarney

Recently I decided to take the week off work to go to Killarney. I stayed for seven days and six nights. I had two nights on George Lake, two nights on OSA lake, and lastly two nights on Killarney lake with a hike to The Crack! (The Crack deserves a whole post of it’s own!)… Continue reading A week in Killarney

Rewards really are out thereĀ 

I haven’t really posted much about the latest adventure. I went on a weekend trip with David from The Passionate Paddler. Let me tell you… it was quite the experience! His trips look like they are always quite an adventure! Anywho… as we were paddling along, he told me to look over to my left.… Continue reading Rewards really are out thereĀ 

Trail review ~ Scorch Lake Lookout

Scorch Lake is located within Algonquin park. I’d been interested in taking a trip out to this lake for a while now after reading an old blog post about the lookout trail. This trip was more of a challenge than I’d really expected. I knew going in that it would be difficult. The portages alone… Continue reading Trail review ~ Scorch Lake Lookout
