Gracias Golden Ears Fondo

So last Saturday, my mate Seb and I go rolling in to Peace park at the southern tip of Coast Meridian road on the banks of the the Pitt River. We were there to attend the inaugural Golden Ears Fondo. Race 1 in a triple crown race series. The other 2 being The Cowichan Crusher…

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…

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…

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…

Towing the Line

Well. I must confess. Between having a newborn and starting a new job, some parts of my life have taken a hit. It has been a learning curve that has come fast and hard, and I wouldn’t change a thing. Though I have had to slow down my frequency of trips and activities, it is…

Colliding Worlds

Well folks, it happened! My wife gave birth to our first child. I am so excited to start the next chapter of my life..and parenthood. Not too many weeks ago I was researching which crampons to buy and what mountaineering boots would work best, now we are going to “Baby Days” classes. Haha how quickly your…

Processing Time.

Grizzly Bear’s “Yellow House” Album is playing and I, sitting on my kitchen floor with coffee in hand am processing. For me this is common. This is my spot. For others it may be yoga, painting, or meditation and such. In this crazy 24/7 life that we are all breezing through at lightning speed I…
