New Inspirations

So addimittedly I have been pretty non-existent lately though not completely off the radar. I have kept myself busy with an early April Trail race under my belt for the year and am switching gears into training for my upcoming 100+km Golden Ears Fondo (cycling) in just over a month. But… Truth be told, my…

Training season has started

Well I feel it’s officially time. Training season has started. A few races lined up so far. Both running and cycling. I managed to get out for a 80km ride yesterday with my brother which was good. We don’t often have too much time these days to put in a long ride together. The bike…

As it goes…

So as it goes. Our attempt at the Neve Traverse was halted by poor weather and high avi conditions. The weather pattern we had hoped for delayed itself a few days and the end result being that our window of opportunity closed for the time frame we had committed to the project. We will be…

Polarizing tides of Solo Travel

I woke up yesterday morning with this memory from my solo cycling trip in the summer of 2016. Going from Calgary to Vancouver. I was outside of a gas station on the outskirts of Kamloops BC. It was hot. That muggy kind of hot you can’t shake even in the shade of a tree. I…

The Season has Started!

It’s rainy here in the city, but for us winter hikers, skiers, snowboarders, and snowshoers, we know that means fresh white stuff in the mountains! I had a chance to get out and hike a good section of the Lions last weekend and we were hitting areas that were already waist deep. The Season has…

Processing Time 2.0

So here I am. Same paint on the wall. Same kitchen. Different album, and different time in my life. I was looking back this morning at one of my posts from about a year ago. “Processing Time”. It got me thinking about how much of a whirlwind the last 12 months have been. Having a…

Mount Cook 

Living out here on the west coast we are spoiled to have the coastal mountains in our backyard. Want to go for a day hike? Your about an hour away from world class mountains. Want a quick bag night? Take your pick of the many destination mountains available. Which is what we did… Mount Cook….

A Quick Bag Night

Well with the weather quickly changing from hot summer to a much cooler fall, and with Whistler already getting a dusting the other day, I figured its high time for at least on more quick bag night before we move into snow camping season. This weekend a small group of us are going to head…

The Next Episode..

It’s the first day back to school for many. The first day back to work for my wife and all the other teachers. All the impromptu summer camping trips have come to an end. All the parks and trails become a little more quiet as most peoples mindsets get “back to reality”. But this is…
