A Good Recurring Camping Injury To Have?

Every single weekend when we get back from our seasonal site on Sunday night, I feel like my legs are on fire from all the walking, biking, hiking, swimming and assorted heavy lifting I’ve done over the weekend (and no, I’m not just counting all the beer cans I’ve lifted to my mouth as “heavy […]

Saturday Snap – Wood Pile at Echo Valley Provincial Park

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 […]

Music Monday – “What’s the harm in meeting me/800 block of Robinson Street/I’ll be in town for a weekend stay”

Blake Berglund is my unofficial campground theme music this summer. This past weekend, his “Coyote” album was the first one I played when we arrived and the last one I played when we left! And here’s the lead-off song from that album which is such a great way to draw you into the album… “Come […]

Canada Day 2015 at Echo Valley Provincial Park & Fort Qu’Appelle

Poking around for ideas about what we might do this weekend at our seasonal site, I came across this video which gives a good sense of the Fort Qu’Appelle Canada Day parade and fireworks a couple years ago.

Sometimes I Forget I Have A Blog…

…usually after a weekend of camping. Here’s some “catch-up” posts… Saturday Snap – Skateboard Mods Pace modified his penny board with duct tape and glow sticks (and after we got home, more permanently with some spray paint I got him to decorate the ramp his grandpa built him!) Secular Sunday More than half of Canadians […]

Great @ryanmeili Speech – “A Question of Trust”

I meant to post this when I first saw it as I thought it was a pretty powerful speech, so unique and different from the usual generic “blah blah” you hear from so many politicians. In it, Ryan Meili talks about the reasons why the general public doesn’t trust politicians.  He points out how politicians […]

Music Monday – “So I’m a free enterprising socialist/Gonna take my cut and share the rest/Left wing as the right wing gets/I’ll vote ’em in for the test”

Really enjoying Blake Berglund on my “Saskatchewan-artists-only” playlist at our seasonal site at Echo Valley Provincial Park. (I’m a bit late to the game but in looking more into Berglund for this post, I see that he’s just completed a personal challenge to sell 1000 copies of his albums in the month of May, mostly through […]

Throwback Thursday – Some Random Thoughts on the Last Day (?) of STC #skpoli

Yesterday was the last day of the Saskatchewan Transportation Company which was shuttered as part of the Sask Party’s extreme cuts in their last budget. Founded in 1946 by Tommy Douglas’ CCF government as a way to connect and serve a widely distributed and (at the time) mostly rural province, STC hit highs for ridership in the […]
