I left off in Part 1 on my beautiful site on Bentshoe Lake in the Haliburton Highlands Water Trails.  It was Saturday May 19th, and my friend Sean from Padding Adventures Radio was on his way to visit and spend the day in the rain with me, doing some kayaking, fishing and catching up. I collected some firewood after breakfast and waited for my friend Sean from Paddling Adventures Radio to arrive.  Sean had just [...]

The May long weekend was on the way and I had no plans. I decided it was finally time to get out and do a trip. My concussion was still lingering slightly but I had improved greatly and figured a quiet, easy, relaxing trip shouldn’t be too difficult.  I booked a site in the Haliburton Highlands Water Trails on Bentshoe Lake. I had actually done my first kayak camp of last year there and knew [...]

It was Sunday, February 25, Day Two of the Outdoor Adventure Show for me!  I woke up feeling very tired and already having a slight headache, I wasn’t quite sure if I should just head home, or head back to the show? After getting up and getting ready, putting some peppermint oil on underneath my Lure buff,  a.k.a. today's head bandage, I decided I would be good for a few hours.   I was very excited to [...]

Every year about this time I get super excited because I know that it’s almost time for the Outdoor Adventure Show! It is one of my favorite events of the entire year.   My first year attending was in 2016 with my mom, and last year was my second year attending.  It was last year that I said to myself, next year, I will be presenting here. So, this year was extremely special to me [...]

With months of anticipation, the day had finally come!  The Outdoor Adventure Show was in Toronto and I was ready to go! By recommendation of my friend at Ontario Trails, this show was a great place to network and meet contacts and with my blog CamperChristina.com still in it's first year, I wanted to make the best impression possible. I contacted my friend Stacey to help me design a logo, which would be used to put [...]
