LifeStraw Review

Adventuring in the mountains, running on the trails or travelling to new countries has something in common – the need for clean pure drinking water. Hydration is often something we can take for granted in the western world where we have access to clean drinking water from practically every faucet.

Salomon Speedcross 3 Trailrunner Review

Bottom Line: These runners were extremely comfortable right out of the box. I didn’t encounter the usual “breaking in” period that I have experienced with other running shoes.

Myself, Spring and Ben had plans to explore some peaks in Joffre Lakes Provincial...

Athelney Pass: The Park that never was

“Why isn’t this place a park?” I uttered those words as myself and Spring had just found a large rock that would be comfortable to sit on as we unpacked our lunches. We where sitting atop “The Elephant”, an unofficially named volcanic plug of rotten rock. A few kilometers away we could just about hear the whoops! of elation as 4 of our friends were reaching the summit of Ochre Mountain. We shouted out to...
