You Really Had Me Going This Time

Posted on August 26th, 2010 in Are You Gonna Eat That?, Does All Her Own Stunts, Made In Alberta, Photos

It can be difficult to figure out what to take with you on a multi-day hiking trip, particularly in terms of food, unless of course you are content consuming “space rations” the entire time.  Keeping in mind that you have to carry everything on your back, you do have to be selective about what will [...]

Always Bring A Compass, It’s Awkward When You Have To Eat Your Friends

Posted on August 24th, 2010 in Does All Her Own Stunts, Made In Alberta

For months I’ve been pondering and planning a multi-day hiking trip in the backcountry of Banff.  Aiden and I picked up a copy of Backcountry Banff by Mike Potter, and spent more than a few hours pouring over the pages, discussing the pros and cons of various trails.  Jack eagerly agreed that a hiking trip [...]

Posted on August 18th, 2010 in Does All Her Own Stunts, Made In Alberta, Mating And Relating, Three's Company

I think that perhaps I am finding myself again, a little at a time.  Yesterday was particularly wretched, but by the end of it, I felt better, and more like “The Old Shasta”. I’ve wanted to write here a number of times, but it feels increasingly public, and while I don’t want to end up [...]

I Taste Like The Tears Of Sad Children

Posted on August 13th, 2010 in Does All Her Own Stunts, Emotional Angst, Migration Paths, Three's Company

As badly as I wanted to move back to Alberta, and as happy as I am to be here, for some reason I feel…not quite myself since we got here. I haven’t been sleeping well, I’m edgier, more easily agitated, noticeably more negative in my attitude.  I don’t feel like I have been handling things, stress in particular, [...]
