So, now it seems that spending a week on my simple little boat (in the eyes of some) is 5 star luxury compared to camping.


Winter camping in the Seven Sisters mountain range on the Skeena River I invented a beverage for acquiring the motivation to leave ones sleeping bag during cold snaps, called Jump Up Go Go;

1) boil water
2) make spearmint tea in a mug
3) add two heaping spoonfuls of hot chocolate
4) add one heaping spoonful of instant coffee
5) add 1/3 of a Mars Bar.
