Having just posted my recap of my first trip to Algonquin and the air mattress mishaps that went along with that trip, I thought it would be a good time to post my thoughts on my current sleeping pad- the Klymit Static V Sleeping Pad.

Where It All Began...

I haven’t posted much recently, because… well, life. With a serious backlog of posts to get through, I thought now would be a good time to delve a little into my first trip to Algonquin. This was the trip that rekindled the campfire (ha ha … get it?), so it seems a logical place to start. Let’s head off on a little trip down memory lane…

In 2016, my younger sister was going to come up to visit from the US. I ...

My first solo trip into the Algonquin interior was a success! The bugs were awful, but other than that, it was a good trip. I even saw a momma moose and her calf on my way out! It will take me a little while to decide which photos will make the cut for my website, write up a trip recap, review the gear I brought out with me, etc. but check back often for updates!

Balls, balls, balls!

I think energy balls are a great snack food! They travel well, are easy to pop into your mouth while on the go, and can provide great little pick-me-up. I frequently make them as a post-training snack in my daily life, giving me the fuel I need to deal with the public transit ride home. When I want to try out a new recipe, I typically scour Pinterest and it never diappoints with endless options to choose from. Here are my thoughts on the last few recipes I've tried out, includi...

By now, if you've taken a look around my site or visited my instagram account (@bombshellbushcraft), you've probably figured out that I enjoy cooking and will take the time to home-test a recipe before I take it outdoors. With that in mind, I thought I would share the menu I have planned for my backcountry trip next month. In addition to cooking on the fire, I will be bringing a folding wood-burning/stic...

Nothing Says Sexy Like A Bug Jacket!

Lately I've been thinking a lot about bugs... specifically biting ones. I know mosquitos and black flies are a part of spending time outdoors. My solo trip is in early June, which is prime season for both those pesky bloodsuckers, and I know that going in. I've heard some people say that they didn't find them to be that bad, and other people telling me that I'll be eaten alive, so I have been hoping for the best, but preparing for the worst. HOWEVER... with our late start to Sp...

My first blog entry! This whole process is a little surprising to me, as I'm not much of a writer, nor have I ever been particularly fond of writing, but I do enjoy sharing my adventures with people, so here we are!

A few things you should know about me... I have a quirky sense of humour, a keen interest in pin-up aesthetic, and a stubbornly independant streak. I'm a compulsive planner, a dedicated home cook and baker and I'm new to the world of bac...
