A trip, before a trip

So a number of months ago, my friend Bryty approached me about a possible trip to go check out a mountain range north of Mt. Currie BC whose peaks bear the names of various “Lord of the Rings” characters. It is an area I have wanted to check out for a while. We began to…

A little closer…

Well They plane ticket has been booked! One step closer. This cycling trip is officially happening. Nice to get that part solidified and off my shoulders. Now becomes crunch time time for any edits to my route etc. I chose to ride Calgary to Vancouver (Richmond) over 11 days as apposed to 10 days with…

Goodies from KRAVE

Well I received my care package from the folks over at Krave Gourmet Jerky today. This will go along way toward the protein needed for the upcoming trip. Thanks you guys for the support! Cheers.

The Process of Planning a Trip.

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…

Winter Camp in Garibaldi

Making the most of your weekend. Time. These days it seems like ours is in limited supply, and how we spend it is extremely important. Though we all have life commitments and goals we are trying to achieve. I have found it equally important to take time to focus on doing the things that help…

Starting the New year on a +

Well here we are 2016! Another big year ahead (as it usually goes). Currently I have some Backcountry trips planned, some cycling trips and plenty of hiking. I wanted to kick the year off on a positive, so rather than setting myself realistic or unrealistic goals that may or may not come together I decided…

When should you “Go it Alone?”

Trips. Travelling. Embarking on some new journey. We have all enjoyed these times with friends and loved ones, but what about when that changes… It is tough (for me) to jump out there on my own and see the world by myself. Maybe because I have always had a group of folks around me that…
