I have always wanted to do a winter backcountry trip in Killarney, but due to the tipi being so heavy and not having a clue where to go, I hadn't made it there as of yet. Over the summer, I had stopped in to visit the lovely staff at the office at George Lake.  I was doing a 5 day, 4 night solo trip and I had a few questions.  I got all the answers [...]

I have been trying to get to the Tim River for a few months now, but time and other plans just wouldn't allow it.  Well, to be completely honest, I attempted to go to the Tim the Sunday before, but after driving an hour to get there, I realized I had left my money at home, so I had to drive back home as I wouldn't have had enough gas to return all the way [...]

If someone had told me a year ago that I would go winter camping, or glamping, in this case, I would've said they were crazy.  Up until this year, it has never crossed my mind to even attempt adventuring in the snow, and now I have done it and am actually even camping in a tent for my next two trips!  Being in nature in the snow is truly magical and I now understand why [...]

After publishing my post on the Marmot Connect Gloves and finding the ones I had too large for me and not as effective as I'd like them, I spoke to my favourite outdoors store contact, Jamie at Outdoors Oriented.  He advised that the gloves did indeed look too big for me and he wanted to resolve the issue for me.  Hence, why I love this place so much! I went in on Thursday after work and Jamie [...]

On Sunday November 22nd, I went on a very chilly paddle on Richardson Creek in St. Catharines, Ontario.  The paddle was absolutely stunning and as I have this blog, I spent a huge amount of the paddle taking photos! (plus I just love it!)  Four hundred and eighteen photos to be exact!  As I take all my photos with my iPhone, I can not do so without taking off my gloves.  My hands started to get numb [...]
