Highlights of our BC Road Trip & Family Vacation

Highlights from our BC Road Trip

& Family Vacation


The first couple weeks of August saw us go on our first family vacation (and first road trip) in over 9 years. We drove out to Vancouver Island, and enjoyed our drive through the Rocky Mountains despite the smoke from the BC Wildfires.  Despite some issues with my youngest two boys, and their conflicting personalities, we had a great time visiting some of the beautiful places in BC that we’ve never been to before (and a couple that we have).

Surving the Summer with Gold Bond

Gold Bond
Surviving All that Summer Brings Our Way

Gold Bond

Summer – the shortest season of the year, or so it seems. Time to get outdoors, breathe in the fresh air and – sweat! I’m going to get right down to the nitty gritty and be – blunt. Let’s talk about sweaty boobs and itchy groins. This is the one thing about summer that I dread. This summer, I’m going to be lathering myself up with Gold Bond.

Enviro-Log Firelogs & FireStarters

EnviroLogFirelogs-Starters I heat with wood during the winter in our wood stove. We tend to go through about 10-12 cord of wood each winter (bush cord not face cord). I am very impressed by these products to say the least. Totally compressed, these firelogs are heavy! Weighing in at 5lbs a log.  The logs burn for a long time (3 hrs), reducing the need to keep adding additional wood to my wood stove. I was very happy to see that the product lived up to my expectations. There is no odd smell that emits from the firelogs which was great. These 5lb firelogs will burn up to three hours, exactly what the product claims. Since using the firelogs as an additional heat source, our wood consumption has reduced drastically. Within 3 hours, we could, on average, stoke our wood stove at least 3 times!!! Using Enviro-Log firelogs is saving us money!!! It costs us on average around $300 for 5 face cord of wood, never mind bush cord.

Bait2Go Bait Holder The Perfect Gift for Any Fisherman

Bait2GoI have to say that this is the best bait holder I have ever seen or come across to date. I love fishing and try to go as often as I can, in the summer and the winter. I was born with a fishing rod in my hand. I was a tomboy if you will and worms, minnows or even crayfish definitely did not make me squeamish. I even used to hold the worms in my mouth to keep them moist, that was until I accidentally swallowed one.
