It’s all about perspective.

This is a photo taken from my dashcam during my recent solo adventure through the Canadian Rocky Mountains. It was a time to reflect, observe and take in the beauty. I did not see my trip as good or bad, but I allowed myself to be present, and this in itself was perfect.

A beautiful ride from Vancouver to Lillooet, BC in 35 deg sunny weather.

Heading south on Hwy 99 just past Duffy Lake.

There are now words that could describe the beauty John and I  experienced on our ride to Lillooet, BC. Riding time there is about 3.5 hours. We prepped the bikes, put on sunscreen and sorted out our wireless communication. We were all set. [click to continue…]


New stallion for my stable? Hmmm…stay tuned.

…update 3 days later. Yup. Now I have 2. I’ll be keeping the one with the BMW hard panniers and selling the other.



Reconsider Your Use of Plastics

I recently watched this documentary. Wow, I thought I knew we, as a world, used a lot of plastic, but I didn’t realize just how much ends up in our oceans. As a scuba diver and boater, I love my ocean. I live right beside it in fact.

I highly recommend that you watch this documentary with your family if you can, and share this link to my post so that others are aware as well. [click to continue…]

RV Adventure. Part 3/3. Kelowna to Vancouver


Part 1 / Part 2

What a beautiful morning to wake up to. The sun is an amazing blue and the air fresh. There is adventure in the air as I loosely plan my day today. I definitely want to drop by Area27 in Oliver, BC and it’s a perfect day for it.

There were a lot of RVs at the Walmart parking lot in Kelowna. I had a nice chat with a couple who are moving from Winnipeg to Kelowna area and they bought a little trailer as their temporary home until they find a new home. Adventures are also about meeting new people and hearing their story.

So off I go…Kelowna to Oliver, Area27. [click to continue…]


Don’t let your dreams pass you by…

Often we feel that we need to have “all our ducks in a row” so to speak before we can choose to move forward.

Many years ago, I learned the difference in living by choice or by decision. You see, a decision is based on outside factors that will help you make that decision, whereas choice is not. [click to continue…]


RV Adventure – part 2/3. Calgary to Kelowna (all expenses paid)

Part 1 / Part 3

Roger’s Pass with a bit of snow coming down.

Entering the Rockies from Calgary.

Near Roger’s Pass

Cutting through the Rockies.

I may have forgotten to tell you, but this trip is not costing me a dime. This is not the first time I have done a trip like this. Having the time freedom to jump on a plane last minute and drive around Western Canada all expenses paid, is my kind of “day at the office”. [click to continue…]


Another RV adventure unfolds… Part 1/3

Part 2 / Part 3

Well. Another adventure begins. I flew into Calgary AB, Canada from my Halifax, NS visit and now am set to drive this RV across the mountains back to Vancouver. This is not the first time and won’t be the last. Today it is sunny and 29 degrees, but tomorrow they are “predicting” 100km hour winds and lots of rain.

Tonight I stay in the Calgary area as the sun has now set and I need a good rest for tomorrow.

A nice meal at Boston Pizza and a good sleep. That is my excitement for the night, and I am fine with that. Tomorrow the day will unfold as the weather permits.

I enjoy adventure. The careers I have chosen have mostly always allowed me time freedom to be able to live life passionately. I would die if I had to be in a cubicle again for 8 hours a day, just to sit in rush hour traffic to get home exhausted.

May you live life with passion and adventure.



It was hot and sunny. We started with a short ride but the sun kept pulling us farther.

The sun was up early yesterday so a quick decision to start our ride early was made. We had a nice breakfast and readied our bikes. My step-father and I were off for a short 30-minute ride. We started in West Vancouver and headed out on the famous Sea-to-Sky highway to Squamish. We thought we would stop for a snack and see what our plan is from there.  Well, we chose only to grab gas and head farther up the road. [click to continue…]
