In the Canadian prairies, there is an instinctual drive to make the most out of our 2-3 months of warm weather. You can almost feel the earth tremble on the 1st of July as campers make their annual pilgrimage to the Provincial Parks. Tensions are high and everyone is trying to get the most out of a few long weekends in what seems to be an increasingly short summer.
Busy parks usually mean 40-foot RVs with powerboats in tow, so we try to look elsewhere for outdoor adventure. It also pays to keep things simple if you don't want summer to be like one long and disappointing New Year's Eve party.
My friends and I crave hiking, fishing, cooking, and exploring parks and wilderness areas. Our philosophy is to travel for shorter periods of time as frequently as possible, all while using local research to keep things new and exciting. However, our circumstances limit our travel range to a few hundred kilometres from our home near the Saskatchewan-Manitoba border. We also operate on a budget level somewhere below shoestring... More of an "extension-cord-for-a-belt" budget.
This is our story as we explore the breadth of Saskatchewan-Manitoba wilderness. From back-country camping to easily accessed points of interest, we hope to show you the true beauty and potential of Canada's most overlooked region.
