A Wildlife Tour at Cedar Meadows Resort
The holiday season has arrived, and with it comes the pressure to buy the perfect gift for everyone on your list. There is almost always someone on your list who would prefer getting the next best gadget, or the practical home appliance. But I wonder, what could be better than giving the gift of an experience you can do together, or as a family? That way, you're giving the most valuable gift (time) and leaving…
Stack brings the return of a brewery to Sudbury
I was sitting in Greater Sudbury’s Fionn MacCool’s with some co-workers of mine when I first tasted a Stack beer. I was in the mood to try something new, and this restaurant has a large selection, so I asked the waitress what she had on tap. After listening to her spout her knowledge of a local brewery, I decided to try Valley Girl, a traditional German-style wheat beer, which is just one of a variety…

Dark Skies, and Long Drives
It was an unusually cold Friday night, on March 9, 2012, when I was driving after work from North Bay to Temagami to enter the MCTV Lions Club Ice Fishing Derby the next morning. When I got onto Highway 11N, I realized the snow was blowing fiercely. In true Canadian fashion I decided to travel on. The roads were slick, and soon there was a line-up of 10+ cars going 60 kilometres an hour in a…
The West Nipissing ATV Club
It's not unusual for a club to have a dress code. So when the email insisted I bring waterproof boots, warm clothing, rain gear and a helmet I thought nothing of it. When morning coffee conversation turned to chest waders, I became concerned. When my hosts began to don said chest waders, I began to second-guess my choice of boots. Next came bags of food stuffed into the top case of the ATV, and lastly,…
Devils Rock
It's hard to believe that one of Northeastern Ontario's best and most accessible vistas is seldom seen. This view would become very important to one of Canada's most successful writers.     To young detectives worldwide, he was known under the pseudonyms Carolyn Keene, Roy Rockwood and most famously Franklin W. Dixon author of The Hardy Boys series. Author Leslie McFarlane, who passed away on September 6, 1977, was one of the most successful Canadian…
My first photo of North Bay, ever.
I guess you could call me a local. I was born and raised in Sudbury, ON, and transplanted to North Bay, ON for post-secondary in 2008.  Growing up here, I found there were two common threads among young people. First, you have to get a car or your life is over. So much of the north was designed for driving. Second, when you're old enough, you have to move away. My friends and I were guilty…
At the edge of Cup & Saucer Trail
Manitoulin Island is the largest freshwater island in the world. With an area of 2766 km2 it could take weeks to truly explore all its freshwater lakes and rivers and to hike its countless trails. Located just a two-hour drive from Sudbury or a two-hour ferry ride form Tobermory, Manitoulin Island is an outdoor lovers playground. We had the opportunity to explore the island from Little Current to Providence Bay and here are some of…
