Feature Travel Blog: Base31: Celebrating the Past by Creating a Future

I had a chance to visit Base31 in Picton, Ontario in August for a short visit and knew I had to go back for a longer one. The history in this place is fascinating.

A Chipmunk Adventure into the US Begins.

Crossing the US border on Thursday I was off on another Chipmunk Adventure. I do not really have a plan.

The Nature of Niagara

Growing up on Grimsby “mountain” I was lucky enough to be surrounded by farm land and had the Niagara Escarpment for my playground. Being in nature for me has always had a soothing effect and even with all the growth in population Niagara still has its natural sweet spots.
