Hey everyone! Just wanted to introduce myself, Katie from Ontario! (1 Viewer)

I hope you're all doing well and I'm excited to share adventures with you. Currently homebound but looking forward to travelling again. Had a great time seeing some of Algonquin Park this summer.

I've lived in tents, sheds, vans and campers over the years. Suburban back yards to climbing up the side of a highway or finding a somewhat "legit" spot to "camp". Let me know if there's any advice I could give.

algonquin park was a favorite of mine as a kid... have yet to revisit in the past decade or two... maybe next summer.

any thoughts of what kind of gear to carry around this time of year in this region?? the mix of heavy rain, sometimes-freezing overnight temps, and daytime humidity has me pretty weighted down with extras rn

I've been softened by the pacific northwest over the past decade, and am a week or two away from giving up on travels til the spring i think, but would love to see the leaves finish changing first if i can make it

    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully this will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.

    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.
