Snowshoeing with the Ramblers - Wilkins Park

Despite it being a chilly morning on Sunday, December 8, we had eight people show up for the hike.   As there wasn't still enough snow in the bush, we didn't need to use snowshoes.We did two hikes on the trip.  After hiking around Wilkins Park which is next to the Nechako River, we drove down the way a bit to do another quick hike along the river.

Amazing Race Canada 2014 Application

Late last year, me and Peter reapplied for the 2014 Amazing Race Canada.  I was so happy that Peter wanted to try for it again.  This year we literally waited until almost the last moment to put together an audition video to submit.  But we did it!  I haven't actually seen the video that Peter worked on, but I will be getting a copy from Peter to post online next weekend.

Unfortunately, we received an email the other day saying that we weren't selected for interviews.  As thousands have applied, I wasn't surprised.  Maybe I'm a little disappointed, but I am realistic about the odds of getting a callback.  I know though, that we still had better odds then those that didn't apply.   And we did have a lot of fun making this year's audition video!  I want to thank Peter for working over the holidays to edit the video and submit it to CTV!  All I had to do besides shooting for the video, was answering some life changing questions on Christmas Day.

My favourite part of shooting the video was when we wrote Amazing Race in the snow - Peter wrote Amazing, I wrote Race!

Anyways, when I get the video, I will post it on Youtube for all to see.  I am hoping that Peter will be up to it to apply for a 3rd time.  I know that I am, no matter the odds!  And in the meantime, even though I may have not made it to the Amazing Race Season 2, but I will continue to have my own EPIC adventures!

Hiking with the Caledonia Ramblers - Ginter's SW loop

The snow had to come sooner or later.  And on Sunday, November 17, it came on the day we hiked through Ginter's Park.  But this was just the start of it, so we didn't need to use our snowshoes yet.  There was a smaller group, perhaps more were scared off by the snow, but not me!  I LOVE snow!  I really do.

Backside to UNBC hike with the Caledonia Ramblers

On Sunday, November 10, I was very excited to get a chance to practice using my compass.  It has been sitting in a box for a few years, since the last Rambler's compass session.

Twenty people joined the leader Nowell, on the hike behind UNBC.  The club had extras for those who did not have a compass.
