Big Bang on the Geocache Diet: Day 280

Tee Hee…giggle giggle.

I was itching to get outside and go for a walk…no…a hike…and not just any old hike…but a great hike. The problem was that I also needed to do some serious geocaching and I only had the afternoon available to go. I still was unsure where to go until I checked my …

Fall Outdoor Activities Challenge – Week 4

For this week’s activity we didn’t feel like going too far from home so we picked a very nice park close by where we thought we needed to spend more time in. Martin walked off ahead and the kids and I hopped into the car to meet him at the Lazo Marsh trail-head. I have …

Biodiversity: Will There be Positive Change This Time?

I came across an article by Richard Black, environment correspondent for the BBC, called Solving Nature Loss: Child’s Play? This article introduced me to the UN Convention of Biological Diversity meetings currently taking place in Nagoya, Japan. I was intrigued by the delegates references to making real changes for the sake of future generations. This …

Fall Outdoor Activities Challenge – Week 3

I may be a little late with writing about our Fall activity challenge but we are on schedule with our outings. This past week we played squirrel as we went to the park to collect acorns. We are far more frivolous with our nuts then the practical squirrel however as instead of food our acorns …

Challenge Caches on the Geocache Diet – Day 270

I had a pretty good week on the Geocache Diet. I enjoyed a fair bit of geocaching, powered through some great early morning hikes, and despite it being Canadian Thanksgiving, I think I did alright watching my diet as well. I always enjoy going to my parents place as there are lots of caches nearby …

Euphoria, Despair, and Fairies

I don’t think the best of Hollywood could capture the range of emotions we experienced. There was shock, confusion, pain, delight, more pain, excitement and then outright euphoria. What triggered such a dramatic response? This scene was the result of a 5 year old losing her first baby tooth. I was about to read the …

Fall Outdoor Activities Challenge – Week 2

This past weekend we had another fall outing as a family, this time to the local fish hatchery. In British Columbia there are numerous hatcheries and most are open year-round. Fisheries and Oceans Canadahave a good page listing all hatcheries. Right now is the time of year to see spawning salmon. The season runs from …

What Am I Going to do with the Geocache Diet – Day 259

January 2010

When I started this weight loss challenge I was certain I would succeed. I was not concerned if I lost all 100 lbs in a year but I was sure I would come close. Unfortunately, after a good start, I have done very, very poorly. I have not lost any significant weight …

The Fall Outdoor Activities Challenge is designed as incentive to get outside as a family even as the weather gets cooler and discover your community in the Fall. …

Am I the Ultimate Conformist or a True Rebel?

This may seem like a silly question to ponder but I do have a point (at least I think I do). Do I follow the crowd or do I dance to the beat of my own drum? I know in the past when confronted with pressure to do something wild and crazy I have usually …

Power Trails on the Geocache Diet – Day 248

I have been doing a lot of power walking lately. I have been charging up hills, beating my 10km loop times, and feeling great for it. Since I have found most of our caches in our area many of the walks have been 7-10km hikes with only 1 or 2 caches found if any at …

Autumn gets a bad wrap since it has to follow summer, but when you think about it there is lots to like. Kids seem to really like Fall with the trees changing colours, Halloween, and lots of yummy things to eat. Come on, you must like it a little bit? There is lots to do …
