Throwback Thursday – #tbt – Heading To Our Seasonal Site (May 2017)

This one doesn’t reach too far back but given that summer’s (too) quickly coming to an end, I thought I’d post a selfie Shea took of us on our way out to our seasonal campsite in mid-May (and yes, I think our daughter might’ve been buried under some pillows since our van was so full!)

I Can’t Decide If I Should Feel Guilty About Missing So Many of My Daily Blog Posts Due to Camping

Nah… 😉

Camping Injury Report

Camping is a strange thing – you pay a lot of money to basically live in the wilderness with all the attendant dangers and risks. This summer, we’ve had a few… Pace hit himself in the face with a metal scooter while attempting a trick, cutting his face, giving himself a fat lip and loosening […]

Another unofficial theme for our seasonal camp site at Echo Valley Campground, especially after last weekend when we hit Echo Beach a couple times… “Echo Beach” – Martha and the Muffins

Throwback Thursday – #tbt – Our First Visit to Echo Valley Provincial Park (June 2015)

Throwback Thursday – #tbt – Our New (To Us) rPod 182g (August 5, 2014)

Funny, just realised that I posted a similar Throwback Thursday post almost a year ago to the day.  Must be mid-summer when I realise how glad I am that we bought our rPod! 🙂 Anyhow, above is a picture of Shea as she went with my parents to pick up our rPod three summers ago […]

Throwback Thursday – #tbt – The More Things Change… (June 2010)

Quite often, to pick out a Throwback Thursday picture, I’ll look through my photo library to the same month but a few years back (I have photos going back to 2006 when we got our first digital camera and a few that had been digitized when we got film developed before that.  So I can […]
