Family day weekend boasted record low temperatures in Ontario.  I decided to go camping at Mew Lake in Algonquin Park, in a summer tent, and at -42, it was a rough but surprisingly fun weekend.  There were many  circumstances that brought me to the Winter in the Wild Festival in Algonquin Park,  as I was expected at Macgregor Point Provincial Park.  Unfortunately, neither of my camping partners could make the trip, leaving me with two [...]

Somehow the thought of winter camping never occurred to me.  For one, I hate the cold, and for two, I don't really care for snow.  Every year when winter arrives, I hibernate along with many other warm weathered canadians who enjoy the other 3 seasons, but know that winter is a time to catch up on movies, tv series, cleaning the house, indoor DIY projects, etc.  But this year, somehow that changed.  I had been [...]

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 [...]

Nature is addictive you know! I've got lots of fall [...]
