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 need to start by saying that this post may not be for everyone - Guys, you may want to skip this, or, it may interest you just as much as the women, especially if you adventure with one of them. Girls, if you adventure, camp, hike, bike, spend a lot of time outdoors or in areas where bathrooms are not always accessible, this post is for you! A few weeks ago, I was at [...]

It was a rare thing for me to have free time these days, but last Sunday, I had the whole day to myself. I had honestly assumed I would be hungover as Saturday was Grape & Wine in Niagara, a festival many locals and tourists participate in revolving around drinking wine. I ended up waking up at 715am, and felt great so I got up and decided it was a good day to go adventuring, [...]

    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 [...]

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 [...]
