Disclosure: the #5DadsGoWild camping trip was made possible through the generous support of a number of businesses – some I mention in the following blog post, including Ford Canada, the Bluemoose Cafe, House of Knives, Farm Town Meats, Stanley and their amazing thermos French Press, and others. However, editorial control as always, is mine. Ahh […]

Tales from the road. Accommodations and observations.
It has now been more than a month since I took part in the annual 5 Dads Go Wild camping trip. And this year, like last year, Ford Canada provided us with a couple of trucks to get us all safely up to – and back from – Manning Park. Disclosure – the Ford Expedition […]
A boat trip up Indian Arm from North Vancouver’s Deep Cove or Port Moody’s Rocky Point boat launch is almost as inspiring as a cruise up the BC coast and onto Alaska.
I’ve been on the road with my kids so much this summer that I haven’t taken any time to write. Guess where one of the places I visited was?

Our third and final day in Texas was spent in Austin and Houston, Texas. Our stops included a cruise along the Colorado River where we go to experience the emergence of literally millions of bats, lunch at June’s Restaurant up in SoCo, and a tour of the Houston Space Center. This was a great way […]
Day two in Austin Texas included a wander along South Congress, a shopping district known to the locals as SoCo, an extended period of time in Allens Boots – Austin’s boot superstore, and finally, a visit to the Circuit of Americas racetrack. Another crazy busy day that again ended with all of us on the dance […]
I was invited to visit Austin Texas for a whirlwind tour – and I’ll be honest, we jammed more fun into a weekend than I ever thought was humanly possible! Austin Texas is a crazy, vibrant and exciting city filled with countless food trucks (that rarely move), eateries, restaurants, live music venues, and drinking establishments. […]
