Well… With a little help from his mum of course! This is a different carrier I’m going to try with Goliath. He really loves his backpack, but he can wiggle and shift around too much. My kayak is super heavy and awkward, so I need all the help I can get to make things easier!… Continue reading How does a 100 year old tackle a ruff portage?
I thought I may try something a little different here. This last unexpected trip was so breathtaking that I honestly don’t have too much to say about it. I’m only sad for you that the pictures will never do this place justice. After the last post I wrote, about not having anything to do over… Continue reading Follow the Sun
One thing that really helps to get my butt out of bed in the morning, is when I’ve already paid for it. Recently I bought a kayak and found that it wasn’t all that easy to learn simply from watching YouTube videos. Who knew? And since I’m used to paddling a canoe, let’s just say… Continue reading Sea Kayaking
Second solo trip to the backcountry! What did you think I meant? This one was fantastic. Not that the last time wasn’t, but it was definitely much better. The weather was perfect, especially on the days I was paddling the kayak. Even the thunderstorm waited patiently for me to set up the tent and the… Continue reading Number 2 in the woods

But I have to admit, it bugs me. It really really bugs me. You see, I’d intended to talk about some… Continue reading I need a new name
Never trust that word is auto saving. And that’s all I’m going to say about that. Dang. I just wrote so much and it’s gone. Anyhow, I woke early today (June 9th) to head out to Kawartha highlands park for my first solo backcountry-ish camping adventure with Goliath. Problem is, I feel like dirt.… Continue reading 1st solo trip report – before setting out
Maybe the title is a bit much. But that pretty much sums up how I felt while I was out there. I’ve heard people say that it’s amazing or “Badass”, to venture out into the woods alone. I definitely felt as if I had a few great moments of badassery. Is that a word? It… Continue reading 1st solo trip – AKA Badass vs. Dumbass
