Where to Take Orphaned or Injured Wildlife [video]

There’s this amazing place in Ontario called Aspen Valley Wildlife Sanctuary that rehabilitates injured wildlife and cares for permanent resident animals (those that are unable to be released into the wild for various reasons).

Recipe: Dehydrated Chickpea Curry (the best!)

I got this recipe from my sister-in-law (thanks Jennifer!). It is the best curry I’ve ever had. That’s a big statement, but it’s true. Others who have tried it, say the same thing. Now imagine having the best curry you’ve ever had, and having it at camp… oh yeah. I decided to take her recipe and…

My Camping Checklist

I’m about to embark on my first-ever solo canoe trip. I’m going for 5 days and waiting patiently for the ice to melt off the lakes in Algonquin Park. I plan to go the first week of May, so if the ice isn’t out of Algonquin, I’ll have to go to a different location. I’m…

2017 Outdoor Adventure Show (recap)

Organizers of the Toronto Outdoor Adventure Show put a call out for talented bloggers to help promote the show, so I sent an email and got a reply! I want to send out a HUGE thank you to Kayla Hlywka for giving me the amazing opportunity to promote the show, give away tickets and connect…

How We Plan Canoe Trips (2017 Map and Flap)

This year was the 2nd Annual Map and Flap at The Camp. What is the Map and Flap? Well, it’s a weekend where friends get together and plan canoe trips for the season and spend a good amount of time next to the wood stove and outside. For those who live in Ontario, you know that…

You Have to Watch These! (Superior-related Canoeing Videos)

With the canoe season winding down (unless you’re an avid shoulder season camper or you have the tent and gear to winter camp) then you’ll probably be spending a lot of your time daydreaming about the next time you can get out. If you’re anything like me, you’ll spend the next few months searching YouTube…

Recipe: Dehydrated Crackers (Super Easy!)

As a gift for letting my friend borrow our Excalibur Dehydrator, she made crackers and gave me some to try. I fell in love as soon as I took the first bite! These are soo good. The smell is unbelievable when they’re fermenting, and even more delicious when they’re in the dehydrator. 

Celebrating Autumn at the Leslie M. Frost Centre

Changing seasons isn’t a date on the calendar for me, it’s a happening. Over the past 2 weeks, I have noticed so much change in the leaves here in Muskoka as well as the weather and temperature. On Saturday, B, Banjo and I decided to celebrate autumn with a 9km hike at the Leslie M. Frost…

Recipe: Dehydrated Mexican Lentil Stew (My Fav!)

Hands down, my favourite meal to dehydrate and eat out in the backcountry. I’m not sure why. Maybe it’s because it weighs practically nothing, but it’s full of protein-rich red lentils. Maybe because it has the word Mexican in it (Mexican flavours are my favourite). In any case, you have to try this!

Birds of a Feather – My Collection

I’ve been after this book called A Guide to North American Species: Bird Feathers by S. David Scott and Casey McFarland. It’s a fantastic book that shows you how to identify what bird the feather came from and what kind of feather it is. My awesome in-laws bought it for me for Christmas.
