Minipresso GR and Minipresso Kit Review

  Bottom Line: A compact unit that makes excellent espresso on the go. Small enough to bring camping or even on hiking day trips. Pulls a shot of espresso that actually tastes like true espresso.

Observations: I became aware of this unit a few months back when I saw a friend using his on an adventure. I’m always...

Journeyman Lodge Review

Bottom Line Visiting the Journeyman Lodge felt like visiting a good friend with a house that just happened to be nestled in the snowy mountains of the Callaghan Valley where we could ski right from the front door.

Even with it’s close proximity to Squamish and Brackendale, as soon as you drive in you...

The Wonderland Valley Resort and Campground

Bottom Line: The Wonderland Valley Resort and Campground is a hidden gem for staying overnight in Squamish. Situated in an amazing location in the trees, with moss covered cliffs beside it, a babbling brook running through it and a secret viewpoint to watch sunsets on the impressive Stawamus Chief and beyond. The amenities are generous with fast Wifi (tested at 50Mb/s download during our stay), laundry facilities onsite for washing...
