I am an adventure writer, wilderness saunterer and a trail runner.
After more than twenty years of backcountry travel, I think I am more comfortable sauntering in the backcountry than walking down Main Street.
More recently I have been diagnosed with lupus, an autoimmune illness that has forced me to subdue my impulsivity and has made this wandering life a bit more challenging.
I live on the outskirts of Whitehorse, Yukon, with my partner, 2 tripping canoes, 6 backpacks, 5 tents, 2 mountain bikes (salvaged from the dump), a 4-Runner and a Corolla wagon (both ’90s Vintage), but no furniture or running water. It might be a bit peculiar but we are quite content.
I focus not on being able to go the fastest, the farthest, the lightest. I just only to be outside. To see. To experience.
Here are some stories of my outdoor adventures, road trips, rantings on living with lupus and random observations on life. There are no detailed trail descriptions or daily journal entries. These are just some stories of my life as I amble and stumble through a fairly charmed – certainly fortunate – life.
