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…

A Season of Mine

As most of you know, I have been laid off from work for the last 5 ish months. At first I was completely beside myself. What was I going to do with all this time? What will people think of me? Slacker? I got a job working for my Dad at the age of 12…

Winter Vibes

In anticipation for a great backcountry and front country ski season, here are a couple ski clips to get you psyched!  

Run On

I have recently teamed up with Topo Athletic  and Topo Athletic Canada to test some of their quality footwear. About a month ago, I received the Women’s Magnify shoe: $170 CA ($110 USD) My whole life I have loved running – from a young age, spending afternoons sprinting up and down our long driveway, to hours spent on…

PNW Micro Adventures: Chapter 4

Ahh, the first hut trip of the season: Saying a silent prayer that you remembered your booties, layering the long-johns and rehashing some wood splitting skills.     Feeling the cold air hit your cheeks as you head deeper and deeper into the mountains…     Feeling a sense of wonder with each glide.    …

Blurr Stuff: PASSIONATE, CREATIVE AND ADVENTUROUS

  I have recently teamed up with Blurr Stuff to try out some pieces from their clothing line. Located in Squamish BC – Blurr is an innovative company that keeps it simple. Their designs are a mix between outdoor function and trendy fashion – from climbers, downhill mountain bikers to trail runners – there is…

5 O’clock Somewhere: The Art of Relaxation

5 O’clock Somewhere: The Art of Relaxation As we drive towards our campsite we can see the snow, like sugar, coating the mountains ahead. With memories of warm granite on the hands, long days under the stars and many summer moments drifting by we are beginning the transition into winter. The adventure doesn’t stop it…

Spicing Things Up

In my previous post, 78′ Style Camping, I shared about the gem of a tent trailer we recently purchased. We have been waiting to have enough time to bring a bit of life back into it! This past week we did some minor renos to spice things up. Its amazing what a bit of flooring, staining…
