Here’s to Adventure Friends

On a Saturday night a couple of weeks ago, I (Nate) was sitting in my living room, binge watching Season 1 of The Man in the High Castle. I knew that getting outside the next day would be good for me, as it always is, but I was feeling a lack of energy and felt […]

5 days solo on the Hudson’s Bay Company Heritage Trail

Nate Lepp, our General Manager, recently completed a solo backpacking trek of the Hudson’s Bay Company Heritage Trail. Originally a network of trails used by First Nations (Sto:lo, Nlaka’pamux and Similkameen) for hunting and trade, in the mid 1800s it became an important route for the horse brigades bringing furs from the west coast on their […]

Lower Pierce Lake: Quest for 10

On Adventure Monday, MWO staff Jesse made his way up to Mt. Macfarlane, and on his way checked off Lower Pierce Lake from the Quest for 10!! The trailhead is located right off of Chilliwack Lake Rd, and there is a sign so it is very hard to miss. The trail is very well marked […]

A Quick Trip to The Chilliwack Community Forest in the Snow

2017 The Summer of George!

2017 was an amazing year. In August 2016 my wife Melanie and I had our second child. Fraser is a little boy who is turning into a crazy dude. For most of 2017 I was a stay at home Dad, but my wife was on maternity leave, it was like the “Summer of George!” However […]

Cycling the Sunshine Coast

Ahh the Sunshine Coast. It’s one of those magical places we can’t get enough of. We’ve visited every month for the last three months and each time have been fortunate enough to have beautiful weather, not a cloud in sight! I guess that’s why they call it the Sunshine Coast, right? 😉 This week we […]

Baby’s First Overnight Backpacking Trip, The Lower Stein Valley

While I was able to get out often with our two oldest kids last summer, the birth of our third daughter put my wife out of commission for most of the summer. Even near the end of the season, she wasn’t up for long days out in the backcountry with the kids. That meant that […]
