My First WednesdayWalk
Grettings Hiveans, Happy New Year! I was inspired to do the Wednesdaywalk by @tattoodjay, I think it's a great initiative to get out there and snap some pics and share a little bit with the world.
Currently, in my little slice of heaven, it really helps to have a pair of these things:
They just arrived a week ago and honestly I couldn't be more thrilled with the quality, as well as the fact that they are made here in Canada. I was looking for a pair of snowshoes and these came highly recommended. What nudged me further towards this specific pair is I've actually been to the place where these are manufactured. A long time ago when I was a treeplanter I, like many treeplanters, would frequent a small store in Prince George, BC called IRL supplies.
For the outdoorsy type, it's great. It's geared for professionals working in Forestry, Mineral Exploration, Drafting, Survey, Engineering and Safety Industries. Treeplanters are certainly the grunts of the forestry world, the bottom of the totem pole. Often you'd hear the saying, treeplanters are like mushrooms - you keep them in the dark and feed them shit. I'll have to write a whole series of posts on my adventures in that arena some other time. Let's just say I moved on with my life for the most part. But it was fun while it lasted. But yea, I knew I wanted a pair of these babys: you can't put a price on quality. Well you can, a higher price and they weren't an exception to that. But I expect them to last. If you haven't snowshoed, your Canadian citizenship isn't considered 'real.' Kidding but it's great fun feeling like a tank and not having snow run up the inside of your pant legs freezing your ankles every time you take a step. Even in snow that isn't as deep, they tend to keep your boots dryer. That's what I'm talkin' about!!!
Other than some birds, and the occasional bunny tracks, things are mostly devoid of life.
Silence. Like you've never heard.
Nobody for miles and kilometers. And that's just the way I like it.
And the boat is sweet too of course.
Everything is actually SLEEPING, awaiting the return of the warmer days in Spring.
And a mini weather station.
Not like that lazy snow ape with the hard hat... Hasn't 'serviced' anyone in years.
For another pic of course.
