Outdoor Adventure Show – Toronto

This past Sunday we hopped in the Paddle In truck and headed down to Toronto to visit the Outdoor Adventure Show. As an avid paddler I’m always excited when this show comes around. Filled with great products, fantastic presentations, and meetings with old and new friends, it made for a perfect Sunday afternoon. Ontario Parks had a great booth as always. Full of people going over maps and planning trips. A “meet the naturalist” table which was a big hit with my daughter. You can tell people are thinking about spring as… Read More

Is it spring yet?

Eramosa River

Quick little photo blog of our paddle down the Eramosa River in Guelph Ontario. We put in near the Scout camp on Stone Road, There is a bridge and a trail there which makes putting in very easy. The paddle took us all the way to the wellington street dam portage. The trip took us about two hours, the paddling is very easy with only a few shallower sections , which I could see being a problem later in the summer. Guelph is our hometown and it was nice to sit back… Read More
