I’m pretty excited about all the blog posts I have yet to write! I had so many adventures this summer and there just wasn’t enough time to write about every single one of them.

I can not wait to share them and hopefully get you excited about the places I’ve been and inspire you to get outside and adventure for yourself, and, share it with others! Nature is addictive you know!

I’ve got lots of fall trips, hikes, paddling and outdoor adventures planned, and in a few months, I plan to try #wintercamping for the first time and #snowshoeing!!!!  If you happen to write a blog on that, or have some posts or information on it, please send it my way!

I’ve also been given a new item to try on my next trip by my friends at Outdoors Oriented called the Go Girl ! Ladies if you don’t know what it is, you might want to,  and fellas, you might want to skip that post altogether! 😉   Along with the Go girl, I have tested some items from  #Thermarest, a sleeping pad and a chair, and the chair will be in a comparison post with it’s less expensive rival brand!  Follow back to see who wins that battle and which chair might be right one for your adventures!

Even though the camping season is over for some, I will still be adventuring and sharing all types of outdoorsy posts for you to enjoy and feel like you’re still out there spending time in  nature with me! They say spending time outdoors relieves stress so let’s relieve some stress together! I know I have lots to get rid of!

OH! I almost forgot!!!  A few weeks ago I was nominated by the lovely Alexis for a Liebster award.  If you haven’t heard of it, it’s an award for new bloggers and one of the conditions is that you must nominate 11 other new bloggers!  That list of Liebster Award nominees will be posted very soon in my upcoming Liebster Award blog post….  so stay tuned for that as well! SEE EXCITING RIGHT? 🙂

I hope you enjoyed my oddly short post and that you click that little follow button on my page and follow me! That way you will know when I post something new and you can make sure you don’t miss any stress relieving nature talk! 🙂

Happy Fall Adventuring!!!!

It’s gonna be awesome!!!!!  🙂

    Winter camping eh? I’ve recently signed up for a outdoor education with Humber college. A part the program is a course on winter camping.

      Sounds awesome! Will you actually have to do a trip for the class? Have you camped before? Thanks for the comment & reading!

        The courses are hands on with a winter camping/snowshoeing trip. I’m starting a backbacking course tomorrow and it has a backbacking Algonquin component. And yes I do camp. 🙂

          Wow! I had no idea you could go to school for that!! Lol. What are you hoping to accomplish with thee classes? Are they for personal reasons or professional ? Sorry. Hope you don’t mind the questions. I’m intrigued!!

            It’s a combination of both for me. I’m looking to upgrade my teaching credentials and also just because I want to. I’ve gotten back into camping this year after a long hiatus and I want more. Also the courses can be taken as general interest stand alone classes for those not interested in doing the whole program.

    That is really cool! Thanks so much for sharing that information for me! I am going to look into these courses. Just curious of everything they offer. Have a super day and hope to hear from you again! Cheers!

    If you’re looking for a fun winter outing you should consider Arrowhead. They have snowshoeing, skating, cross-country skiing and tubing. We had so much fun there last year that it was the inspiration for our first blog post. Though there is no winter camping at Arrowhead they do have some cabins that you can rent. We decided to give them a try next winter.

    Frontenac offers snowshoeing, cross country skiing and winter camping. It’s a beautiful spot any time of year, but there’s something special about it in winter. Details of our visit this past winter can be found here.

    Finally, Mew Lake in Algonquin looks like a great place for winter camping. We haven’t been yet, but are hoping to make it out come winter.

    Winter camping is a lot of fun. We’ve been doing it for years but we usually stay in a cabin or yurt. Last year, we tried tenting in Algonquin (with an electric heater because we didn’t want to go too extreme having a ten-year-old with us) and it was awesome. You can read more about this trip and some other winter camping stories here: https://gonecampingblog.wordpress.com/category/winter/ Just scroll down to find more.
    Arrowhead is indeed a great park for winter activities: snowshoeing, skiing, skating, a tubing hill and they have rentals. We spent a few Family Day weekends there. But it is becoming more and more crowded lately. A couple of years ago we spent over an hour just to get in. But maybe if you go on some other weekend or in the middle of the week, it will be better. We used to stay in a hotel in Huntsville years ago and two years ago we rented a cottage about thirty minutes away: https://randompiks.wordpress.com/2014/02/18/fun-family-day/
    They actually have camping cabins in Arrowhead but they can be hard to book. We’ve never stayed in one but I booked one in KIllarney for New Year’s so we’ll see. Sometimes Eventful has a great post about a cabin in Arrowhead: http://www.sometimeseventful.ca/2015/03/a-cabin-in-woods-glamping-at-arrowhead.html
    Other Ontario Parks, like Killarney, Algonquin, Pinery, Silent Lake, have roofed accommodations as well. You can try those if you want to stay in the park. Yurts have beds and a table inside but no washrooms or cooking area. Although the new camping cabins have microwaves and refrigerators. I like to stay in the park because that way you don’t have to drive anywhere and that way you can have a campfire, something you can’t have in a cottage or in a hotel. But as I said booking roofed accommodations can be hard since they go fast.
    When we miss a reservation window and can’t find anything in Ontario, we go to Allegany State Park in New York. Their cabins are lovely and it’s only 2.5 hours away. You can read about it on my blog as well.
    Hope it helps. Enjoy your winter camping! It’s really great, nothing like a campfire among the snow. And congratulations on the award!

    I don’t have any links to share but snowshoeing is a lot of fun! Two things I learned the hard way…don’t forget trekking poles (with the snow adapter on it), makes life so much easier, and wear boots that don’t have a long loose tongue (mine were worn enough the laces couldn’t keep the tongue secure so I was pretty much stepping through my boot every time, very tough on the muscles.
    I’m also going to do winter camping for the first time this year! Looking forward to it 😀 and looking forward to your posts on it.
