Rewards really are out there 

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 there 

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

Lay bag knock off

​I wish I filmed the first attempt at this!  But third is better than nothing! 

How does a 100 year old tackle a ruff portage? 

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? 

My favorite places to hike

I was asked the other day if I knew of any good hiking spots around here.  When I replied saying that I would put together a list I had a few messages from people asking if I would share that. So I figured why not publish it here?  These are absolutely in no particular order.… Continue reading My favorite places to hike

Finding Nemo?

Today was the perfect day to get outside and go for a hike. My little guy started to get excited when I was packing up a few things to go, so I figured I would bring him. I’m realizing more and more these days that when the weather is really hot, it’s probably too hot… Continue reading Finding Nemo?

Follow the Sun

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

Long weekends

I think I’ll be guilty of this this weekend.  Somehow I didn’t notice that this was a long weekend. Once I realized I had some extra time, I checked a few places online for backcountry sites and almost everything is filled right up.  At least the places where I wouldn’t have to drive that far.… Continue reading Long weekends

Tree Top Trekking

​Yesterday a group of friends and I went to TreeTopTrekking in Brampton. We finished the five grueling courses as well as the huge zipline across the lake! This is my second time doing this and everyone else enjoyed it so much that we’ve decided to try and turn it into an annual event. It was a scorching hot… Continue reading Tree Top Trekking
