April is here, and winter is officially over, but we’re still basking in the warm glow of a season full of fond memories and great travel companions!  We’d like to thank everyone who made this, our third trip season, such a wonderful and memorable experience!

Full trip reports and videos will be released slowly over the weeks and/ or months to come.  In the meantime most of the season’s photos have now been uploaded, and can be viewed here.

This season we had the pleasure of being out on 5 group trips, and 2 personal trips totaling 44 days on trip and over 300km traveled!  Some of the highlights include:

  • We had our most mature participant to date: at 78 years of age Gerard impressed every group member on our 9-day Eco-Explorers Expedition in the Wolf Lake area!
  • This year we had the honour and pleasure of getting to meet Dave and Deb from The Planet D and travel a section of the historic Missinaibi River!
  • Traveling in our new backyard!  Just kilometres from our new home, we summited Mt. Ararat on our “Celebrating Spring” trip.
  • An amazing journey on a seldom-frozen section of the largest lake in the world: Lake Superior!
  • The amazing winter weather we had for (nearly) the entire winter.  With the exception of one mid-January thaw, we had wonderful consistent winter weather all season!

We’d like to sincerely thank everyone who provided support and/ or encouragement:
