Learning to Navigate in a Wilderness

We had a spectacularly warm and sunny autumn day for practicing our land navigation skills in the Lowell Regional Greenspace, as the yellow maples glowed all around us.

Hidden Waterfalls of Northern Ontario

Northern Ontario has hundreds of waterfalls, many of which are little-known and seldom-visited because access to them is challenging. This expedition explored some of these remote hidden gems via overland travel on primitive roads, and hiking through untamed woods.

Spring Warmup Challenge 2022

For this excursion we spent four days exploring four different areas near Gaylord MI, and challenged ourselves to practice our outdoor skills and learn something new. It was a chance to get our bodies and gear warmed up and field tested for upcoming 2022 adventures.

Exploring the Two Hearted River

For this excursion we explored the area around the Two Hearted River in Michigan’s eastern Upper Peninsula. Some of us floated the river in kayaks while others explored overland on primitive roads and trails.

Cooking With Fire

In this outdoor cook-off we challenged ourselves to cook something amazing using only a wood fire as the heat source. No fossil fuels, no alcohol stoves, no electric appliances.

Grand Island Excursion

We rode the mighty Zodiac Thor across a narrow strip of Lake Superior to Grand Island, one of the newest assets in the National Forest Service inventory. It was added in the early 1990s and was formerly a private game preserve and privately owned. Once settled in at camp, we set out to explore the many miles of roads, trails and beaches.
