In 2014,we moved to a wilderness property of our dreams: an undeveloped plot of forest and pond surrounded on all sides by thousands of acres of public land.  There is no road access, no utilities and our closest neighbour is 6km away.  Three years in and we’re still living in a tent, and still wake up with a sense of awe and wonder when we look out our door.

The first year (or two, or three) were hectic as we juggled developing the land, and the skills required to live out here, with growing our small guiding and outfitting business.  The transition hasn’t been easy, but has been incredible.  We’ve had the support of some amazing neighbours, family, and friends new and old to thank for the help that has made this possible.

Now that we’re starting to feel a bit more settled into our new home, we’re eager to share some of the joys of wilderness living and teach some of the new skills we’ve learned along the way.  This page will continue to grow as we broaden our horizons!

If you’re interested in spending some time out here with us:

  • Our “Glamping” accommodations are a perfect, private get-away; OR
  • Volunteer to get “WWORP’d” and stay for free;

If you’re interested in self-sufficiency skills:

  • Chainsaw Milling is an incredibly simple and rewarding way to make your own lumber;
  • We also offer a variety of skills and crafts workshops throughout the year, hosted both here at the pond and abroad.

Finally, please check our calendar of events to see if we have any upcoming workshops out here at “The Pond”!
