Big Taste & Big Craft Beer—Gastropubs of North Bay
We’re at the peak of Big Winter in North Bay with Snowmobile, Skiing, Ice Fishing & Battalion OHL Hockey all going on. I can’t think of a better way to spend some warmer hours by wetting your whistle and filling up on some good grub than a visit to one of a couple of the trending food stops in North Bay! In this BIG Bite mission, I set out to discover the changing local landscape in pub food, known to foodies and city dwellers around the world as Gastropubs.  What makes a great Gastropub? Well, the recipe is that combination of sneaky hop-happy craft beer; authentic pub food, but not your greasy fast food deep fryer kind; and, an atmosphere crossed…

A blown belt could ruin your day or, if you're prepared, be a minor nuisance.
So you’ve got your ride planned and you’re heading out, do you have everything you need to be safe while out on your adventure? If you’ve ridden the Gold Rush Tour or The Abitibi Cnayon Loop and areas like Timmins, Cochrane & Sudbury just to name a few, you will know first-hand that often your riding consists of “middle of nowhere” trails, often no cell phone signal exists, and you can go hours on trails without seeing other people. This can make things particularly dangerous, but they don’t have to be if you plan accordingly and bring the gear that you need.  “Where am I going to fit everything I need” one might ask. Snowmobile manufacturers have seem to taken…
The Ontario That Almost Was—The French River and the Georgian Bay Ship Canal
As you cross the largest snowmobile bridge in the world on the French River, consider the magnificent view.  At one time, if history had become reality, you might be looking at ocean going freighters!   In the history of humankind, it is difficult to pinpoint events that changed the course of history. Generally many series of events lead to momentous circumstances. Never mind Northern Ontario, Canada would be a different place if the Georgian Bay Ship Canal had become a reality. Ships the length of two football fields laden with grain from the prairies using the French River and Lake Nipissing? This vision at one time almost became a reality. Highway 69 may not have become a reality. The proposed Georgian Bay…
Massive tiger musky caught at Andy Myers Lodge on Eagle Lake
Ontario's Sunset Country is often referred to as 'God's Country'. The fantastic fishing is just one of the many reasons we are called that.    Whether you are a Canadian or American, or even from abroad, there are certain things you should know about when planning a fishing trip to Ontario, Canada. In the northwest corner of the province of Ontario, we have over 70,000 lakes and rivers, many of which are fishable. There's probably more lakes than residents in Sunset Country, and there's definitely more fish than people, that's for sure!  What Can I Fish For? Ontario's Sunset Country is renowned for it's fishing, not only for the sheer number of lakes and rivers to fish, but also for…

Tales From the Trails—Snowmobiling Mattawa
The term “All Inclusive Getaway” often conjures images of white sand beaches, suntan lotion and an endless conveyor belt of food. But that’s just one interpretation of the term. If, however, your “significant other” is a snowmobile, the term all-inclusive means complete access to the thousands of miles of trails just outside your door. The Valois’ Motel & Restaurant in Mattawa, Ontario, is just such a place. Sure it has comfortable rooms, friendly staff, good food and a river view from every window but most importantly the trailhead is just across the road. And we had the pleasure of crossing that road a couple of times on a recent visit.  Mist on the river in January can only mean one thing,…
Fort William Historical Park - Image by Stephanie Reid
  Trapping wild fur bearing animals has come a long way since the height of the fur trade as depicted at Fort William Historical Park. Fort William Historical Park - Photo by Stephanie Reid Even up until 1948, trapping was a free-for-all with no regulations or management in Ontario. Today, however, the culture of trapping encompasses a respect for nature and a responsible wildlife management plan through regulations administered by the Ministry of Natural Resources. Fort William Historical Park - Photo by Stephanie Reid Ontario has over 2,800 registered traplines and the Thunder Bay District alone has about 145 traplines, where the focus, like the days of the voyageurs, is the beaver. A quota system on each line ensures the…
