Hello and welcome to my blog. My name is Jim and I live in Bowmanville, a small Ontario town about an hour east of Toronto. I have three daughters in University and two sons at home with me and my wife. One is three and a half and one is seven weeks old this Friday. I love the outdoors and my blog is going to be outdoor related. It will mostly be related to Southern Ontario but not restricted to it. Some of it will be family activities, some you might have to leave the little ones at home! What do I like? I am into canoeing, kayaking, birding, mountain biking, road biking, cross country skiing, hiking, snowshoeing, camping, trail running, and running just to name a few. I have cycled across Canada, climbed Kilimanjaro and hiked the crest of the Smoky Mountains.
Needless to say I love the outdoors and this blog will tell you some of my adventures, let you know about whats coming up in the way of outdoor activities in southern Ontario and just to talk about some outdoor related item. Just to begin with my next post will be about Kilimanjaro, a trip I did about two years ago and have been wanting to put on the web ever since but never got around to. I am also going to write about marathon skating and Lake Scugog in the near future as well as looking at the nearby and natural areas and activities available to us here in southern Ontario. Enjoy
