I am a cyclist, a downhill skier, a canoeist, an angler, and a geocacher. I also like to hike and portage. When I'm in the canoe, I find it hard to decide whether I'd rather be on open water or in a marshy river, but I know I want to be far away from the buzz of the city. I like to relax on a nice static camping trip, and I also like the exertion of a multi-day tour along a route. Honestly, if I'm in a canoe, I'm happy.

I have a few large wall-maps of Algonquin Provincial Park, Killarney Provincial Park, and the Temagami region, on which I am highlighting all my expeditions... I would like to eventually visit all the major lakes on those maps!
