Loch Ness 360 Bikepacking

Loch Ness 360 Bikepacking

  It has become one of Scotland’s great off-road cycling trails. Yet planning a ride can be tricky, partly due to the fickle weather, but mainly due to the mix of surfaces, from tarmac to mud, made trail to loose stones.    Most cyclists wonder, ‘what bike should I use’? We tried to answer this […]

Telia fast mobilt bredband

Telia fast mobilt bredband

Vi bor i fiberlöst land, eller det finns fiber ganska nära men inte just precis hos oss 😉 Bjäre Kraft grävde ner fiber runtomkring oss men vår lilla vägsnutt fick de inte tillräckligt med bidrag för. Vi har haft bredband via ADSL sen vi slutade med modemuppringt internet. Kopparnätet är visst på väg att kopplas … Läs mer…

February 2nd – Discovery Island (4)

February 2nd – Discovery Island (4)

I paddled out to Cadboro Point to join Paulo and Dan. It was as cold as I have been paddling in a while! There was snow on Cadboro Point as well as on Strongtide, Vantreight and West Chatham Islands! Conditions were not bad with 10-15 kt of wind and a bit of an ebb current. […]

Everywhere We Look

Everywhere We Look

In the film, Decision, Dr. Peter Hodum has a line that has always stuck with me. Speaking of microplastics, he says: “Everywhere we’ve looked we’ve found them.” But they can’t really be everywhere, right? Right? And yet, Hodum is eerily correct. He doesn’t actually say that these microscopic strands and particles are everywhere, he just …

The Sparrow: a modern Greenland-style kayak with an ancient spirit

The Sparrow: a modern Greenland-style kayak with an ancient spirit

Guest post by Marcelo Rossi. He writes about a kayak he designed and built. I have always liked the Greenland kayak. It has something magical, its lines, its bow, its low profile — like an ancient and mysterious marine creature. After building several skin-on-frame kayaks and baidarkas, I’ve had the goal of making a Greenland-style …

Kayak Camping Electronics, Part 1 – Charging Kit

Kayak Camping Electronics, Part 1 – Charging Kit

While some people may shun electronics in favor of more primitive means I find a sense of security in being able to communicate with my family and enjoy the luxury of taking photographs while on kayak trips, not to mention I like being able to turn on a light at night. Carrying electronics on trips that are more than a couple of days requires planning and preparation.

I went for a solo paddle around the bay to enjoy the nice winter weather. Had a chat with Curran and kids on shore and saw a few different birds. https://ebird.org/canada/checklist/S101859406 The tide was fairly high allowing me to sneak through several gaps. click to enlarge 7 km, YTD 38 km

In Memoriam Eric Soares August 1, 1953 – February 1, 2012

Editor’s Note: At this time each year we pause to remember Commander Eric Soares, co-founder of the Tsunami Rangers. As the poem says, “What is precious, is never to forget”. The Truly Great by Stephen Spender I think continually of those who were truly great. Who, from the womb, remembered the soul’s history Through corridors […]

Utenatt januari

Utenatt januari

Nära vi vaskade januari och missade utenatt. Så precis som vanligt alltså 🙂 I förrgår slog vi upp Tarrat väldigt hemmanära. Somnade sött på våra nya liggunderlag. Tre till fyra minus på morgonkvisten så lite svalt när tårna smet ut under täcket. Gött med innekaffe från vedspisen 🙂

Årets nya pralin blev saltlakritskola med mjölkchokladganash, i vitt skal, rullad i en blandning av socker, lakritspulver och salmiaksalt. Blev himla gott. Temat i pralinerna är annars tänkt att vara det som finns hemomkring att plocka under året. Får helt enkelt börja odla lakritsrot, det hade ju varit lite kul om man lyckats göra eget … Läs mer…

Facts Don’t Care

Facts Don’t Care

Remember when there were people who didn’t believe in climate change? Remember when large segments of society (and their moronic political representatives), thought that sea level rise was just a liberal hoax? That because it snowed yesterday meant that global warming wasn’t real and that just because there were more adverse weather events, like hurricanes …

Vinterpaddling

Vinterpaddling

Vad räknas som vinterpaddling? För de flesta kallar man det nog vinterpaddling när det är svalare i vattnet, för riktigt erfarna är det kanske när det är tio minus och snö och issörja. Det är alltså som så mycket annat, olika. Det är lätt att många fastnar i prylhetsandet om det ska vinterpaddlas. Du måste … Läs mer…

Ingen ble med dessverre, men jeg kjørte dit, og det så jo utmerket ut der. Rolige forhold, og jeg […]
