Rain is inevitable. That it will ruin the day is preventable. Cotton clothing kills. It doesn’t wick sweat, takes a long time to dry and sucks warmth from the body. Leave it at home and instead bring clothing made from...
Generally, this time of year my camp gear storage area is littered with numerous full, half-full and possibly empty camp stove fuel canisters. I love how efficient and lightweight these (iso)butane/propane stoves are, but it’s quite annoying to try and...
A few years ago, I embarked on an overnight canoe trip in Wells Gray Provincial Park. For some, this might not seem like such a wild escapade. After all, there are plenty of explorers doing week- and month-long paddling trips, ranging...
