Adventure Bound

  The skydiving season trickled to a start this year.  Unlike other skydivers, I jump with some regularity through the winter, so for me it was a slow start to the season with sporadic jumping in March and April. Dropzones start Safety Days in May, which often marks the beginning of another season. Safety days are an opportunity for all experienced jumpers (or fun jumpers) to run through safety procedures and discuss… Read More

  I recently experienced the Niagara wine scene by bike – a pretty cool experience. I took my mom on a wine tour with Grape Escape bike tours for her birthday. This company appealed to me because it married being physically active with wine…I mean what doesn’t sound good about that? Our tour was on a Sunday afternoon and promised to be about 20km with four wineries stops. The beginning of the… Read More

  Last fall I discovered McCrae Lake while searching for an adventure activity near the cottage. The cottage is great, but I can only relax so long before looking for something to do. Fall at McCrae Lake was beautiful and led to my first HIGH cliff jumping experience – like 82 feet high! Spring at McCrae Lake did not disappoint.  McCrae Lake has a reputation for more rowdy campers because of its… Read More

For those of us that skydive regularly, jumping can be therapeutic.

It is a brief escape from the 9 to 5 and a wonderful way to recharge. This past weekend, a fellow skydive said “this is better than going for a massage.” A good way of explaining the relaxation that comes from jumping.

Fall has come and gone. The last few vibrant leaves cling to the trees as a crisp wind blows past.  For many this marks the end of our skydiving season. Some of us crazy people will visit the one dropzone that stays open all winter in the off season, but this is generally the end. I find I am reflective at this time of the year.  It was only September 2014 that… Read More

I have decided with the abundance of waterfalls in a short distance of me, I should get out and visit them.  I often forget about the places to explore in my own backyard. We visited Balls Falls at the end of August to find it completely dried up. The drought in Ontario has not only been hard on farmers, but many of the waterfalls in the area are suffering too. The falls… Read More

As I mentioned in a previous post, I came up with this great idea to take our horses to the dropzone (skydiving), ride down to the beach and try and entice them into the water. Overall, it was a great experience and made for a fun afternoon, but as promised here is the full video of our adventure.   Check out the full post here.

  Sometimes I come up with crazy ideas and believe it or not, I sometimes find people that even want to go along with them. The place I skydive at is near a beach that we occasionally land on. Once or twice I noticed people with horses riding down to that beach. The logical next step in any reasonable person’s mind is to figure out how I could also get my horse there…. Read More

Adventure does not necessarily mean travelling the world. People often forget about the hidden gems in our own backyards – I am a culprit of this too. So when a friend told me about an abandoned water park and hotel I could visit within a 30 minute drive of home, I was pretty excited. The location is Prudhommes Landing – once a popular destination teeming with visitors. Now stands a dark decaying… Read More

I have been going to Algonquin Park for as long as I can remember. My parents were avid backcountry campers (my mom still is) and passed on a love of the outdoors to me. A few visits to the park a year, since I was a child, has left me with a pretty good collection of personal favourite locations. With that in mind I have collected my top ten places to visit… Read More
