As many of you know, last spring I applied for Canada's Dream Job with Woods Canada.  The contest brought forward almost 4000 applicants and out of those people, I sadly was not chosen.  Melba Seto and Adam Kochanek were chosen and they were absolutely awesome! I followed along with the Woods Explorers every step of their journey and was so involved, Woods even sent me a set of Woods Explorer shirts for myself and my mom [...]

I woke up to a beautiful day, 15 degrees in mid November!  I had had knee surgery just over 3 weeks ago and I was feeling awesome! Last weekend I had ridden the Trans Canada Trail in Fort Erie and today, I was up for a new adventure! I shuffled over to my computer and clicked on the Trans Canada Trail website to find a section of the trail I could ride my bike on, that I hadn't done [...]

When you love adventuring and being in nature, it feels like your world is ending when it is taken away from you, even for a short time. As some of you may have read, it's been a huge summer of adventuring for me! Spring and Fall too!  I have loved every minute of it and it happened due to many reasons.  One of them was that due to a torn meniscus & ligaments in my [...]

I have spent most of this summer in the outdoors. I have camped, kayaked, hiked, cottaged, biked, backcountried, and done everything and anything to enjoy the outdoors that I possibly could.  Every minute I have had free, I have been on an adventure and it is has been simply amazing! I have had the good fortune to be given and loaned some different items from my friend Jamie at Outdoors Oriented which is my go to outdoors [...]

    On Saturday, September 5th, I had plans to visit friends in Woodstock for the evening.  Another great opportunity to explore a new section of the Trans Canada Trail!  I went on the website and checked the TCT Map.  I discovered a really nice section in Brantford, pretty much en route to my final destination, so I packed up my bike, lots of water, as it was going to be very hot today, and headed [...]

On Sunday August 9th, I left the TCT in Guelph and headed to do a section of the trail in Cambridge, in a somewhat round about way home. I was a bit tired from the night before, celebrating my friends wedding in Guelph, but had figured since I was already there, why not do some of the Trans Canada Trails out this way?  I mapped out a route to do the trail in Guelph, then [...]

Since I still have a bit of time to wait to go to Burnaby, BC and I love the @TCTrail, I figured Burnaby Street in Wainfleet would be a good place to start a section of the TC Trail for my bike ride today. I was very happy upon arrival to the trail. It was really easy to find it and I didn't get lost en route! YAY!  The trail is a bit more rural here [...]
