Round 3 Go: Sunshine Coast Trail km 95-130 After last Fall, our 50km hike got Candace and I to the half way point of the sunshine coast trail. Tin hut mountain. It was a slog.

Putting together multiday trips, regardless of the activity takes careful thought, some obsessive packing, and a bit of stress. Surprisingly I have had a number of people say to me that they don’t know how to put together a multiday trip. Not knowing where to begin. So I thought I would lay out how I put together my adventures.. The Trip: What is my objective? Kayaking the … Continue reading The Process of Planning a Trip.
