On November 29th, In Canada, lol, I set out to paddle Lyons Creek in Niagara Falls, Ontario.  Yes, I was wearing snow pants, a very warm ski jacket and a toque, but I was going paddling and I was stoked!!! On Thursday I had gone to Outdoors Oriented and picked up a pair of Marmot Connect Gloves. Whenever I am at the store, I always get valuable advice from someone there, this visit was no different.

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 [...]
