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 [...]

At 7am on Saturday, still dark outside, I got up and got ready to enjoy a long awesome day of hiking!!!  It was to be a beautiful day out and who knows how many of those we have left before that crappy fall weather hits us. You know the stuff, rain, wind, cold, damp, dark, dreary ....  weather.  I was dreading it, although giving me time to write posts would be a  big benefit of [...]

I have never officially hiked in Parry Sound until this Thanksgiving.  My good friend Katies family visits a cottage in McKellar, Ontario, every thanksgiving and last year invited me along.  Since I behaved myself so well, they invited me back again this year and I was super excited to be there! This year I had been adventuring all summer and was pretty much away every weekend, or already had plans to do something while at [...]

When I was a wee thing in my single digits, my family used to rent a cottage on Green Lake, Up North, Ontario.  LOL. My parents would spend alot of time fishing while we were there and my mom didn't like the boat so much. My dad and brother would fish in the boat and drop my mom and I off on the shore nearby.  My mom would fish and I would play in the [...]

Every year my mom and I head to Parkway Cottages & Resort for a few days at the cottage. It is located just outside the border of Algonquin Park and we spend lots of time there hiking and exploring the area!  I am not a time waster and when I am heading  out on an adventure, choose to use all the time I have available, like leaving at 4 or 5am to get up north [...]

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 [...]

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, [...]
