I’m Fine, Thanks.

Those of you who know me well, know that it was only a matter of time before I put whats going on in my life into writing or on social media. The last 6 months of my life have been an earthquake of changes. Some good, some hard and some unresolved. But I’m fine, thanks….

It’s Not Goodbye, It’s See You Later…

Well today is my last day in Nepal. The entire duration of my trip was about a week shy of a month. This was my second time visiting this captivating country. I will be returning home with more travel wisdom, stories and memories than I could have imagined. I have looked forward to this trip…

Nepal 17′ Log

These are notes copied from my journal! I find it easier to transfer thoughts from there after a busy day. The wifi has been spotty – but now I am able to share. Enjoy! February 16th: Arrive in Kathmandu, Nepal  I’m BACK! Just touched down in Nepal and I couldn’t be happier. This place tugs…

Conquering the Cold Stuff

This week I finally got to try ice climbing! This has been on my bucket list for as long as I can remember. I’ve rocked climbed outdoors for the last 6 years and this was the next necessary move! My friend Steve was awesome enough to lend me his tools and some tips for my first…

Becoming a Brand Ambassador/Influencer 101

I’ve had a few messages lately on Instagram from followers asking about how they can become ambassadors or influencers for their favourite brands. In the age of Instagram, Facebook, Twitter and Snapchat – there is a growing community of brands doing advertising through social media. Having advocates for your brand is one of the best things…

We Could All Learn A Little From Bishop

At first glance, Bishop is your average, scraggly mutt. His hair is matted in sections, his finger nails are broken and discoloured, his ears are floppy and he’s going a bit grey. But when you take a closer look, you see more than just your average house pet. Looking at his head you’ll see some…

Mountaindarlin’s GoPro 101

Recently I’ve been receiving an overwhelming amount of private messages and comments on Instagram regarding my settings and which accessories I use with my GoPro cameras. I figured putting together a blog post was the best way to get some of my tips & tricks to the interested audience! I’ve compiled a list of the…

That Ranger Green

I’ve been thinking a lot lately about the colour of my Ranger uniform jacket. It’s nothing special, just a washed out green colour. But each time I look down at my sleeve or catch a glimpse of the colour in a mirror or the truck window, I feel this interesting sense of peace. I look…

DreamReal Video

It’s finally here! Check out the video GoPro made of my trip to Nepal:  

Went for the Mountains, Stayed for the People.

I’ve been home one whole day since my trip with GoPro to Nepal. I’m going to do my best to recap the trip without completely typing your ear (eyes?) off. Where to start… This was my first time heading out of North America (see previous post to find out why haha). I wasn’t nervous until…

Dream Real – NEPAL

In 3 days I will be boarding a plane on route to Nepal. I’m still pinching myself to make sure everything that is happening is actually real – GoPro is making my dream come true! I will be heading there to paint and explore some scenic villages. Although it is monsoon season, I am hopeful…

The Lone Ranger Meets The Games

The past week has been one for the books. The only way I can describe it is by saying it was like Disneyland with all your best friends…but better (and free). I hopped on a plane at 7 am last Wednesday morning on route to Denver CO for the Gopro Family Summit at the Mountain…
