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 [...]

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 [...]

On Sunday August 9th, I left the TCT in Guelph and headed to do a section of the trail in Cambridge, in a somewhat round about way home. I was a bit tired from the night before, celebrating my friends wedding in Guelph, but had figured since I was already there, why not do some of the Trans Canada Trails out this way?  I mapped out a route to do the trail in Guelph, then [...]

On the morning of Sunday August 9th, I woke up groggily after celebrating my friends wedding.  I was in Guelph and therefore had brought my bike, deciding to do a portion of the Trans Canada Trail here today.  I got dressed, packed my backpack and headed out on my way, deciding to start the trail in behind Woolwich Street at MacDonell Street,  just a section down from the church where I watched my friends marry [...]

On Monday, August 3rd, 2015, I planned to go for a nice bike ride on the Trans Canada Trail with my mom.  A few weeks ago we were honoured with the gift of two #woodsexplorer shirts from @woods_canada to thank us for our interest in the Woods Brand and for my involvement in their growing online community.  They had asked to give one to my mom and for us to wear the shirts on our next adventure, and today [...]

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 [...]
