Welcome to I Want to be Outdoors!
“Enjoying the Outside World”
“Of all the paths you take in life, make sure a few of them are dirt”. (John Muir)
We like being outdoors, enjoying everything nature has to offer. We love to hike, paddle, explore, camp, sit around a campfire, watch the sun set and the moon rise…
We write about our camping and travel adventures, along with equipment recommendations, campground reviews, interesting places to visit and things to do, and more. We’ve always liked taking routes less travelled – sometimes getting lost along the way…
Update, May/2017: After spending a year and a half in Ecuador, we’re returning to Canada. We’ll be visiting our home province of Nova Scotia, then taking a long-overdue trip to Newfoundland. Next, we’ll be loading up our old camper van, “Van Morrison”, to drive across Canada to new adventures on Vancouver Island, British Colombia.
Join us on our new travels. We’ll be taking many back roads, exploring off-the-beaten-track locations across our beautiful country – and it just happens to coincide with Canada’s 150th birthday.
Our on-the-road blogs will feature campground reviews, hiking trails, what to do and see, and other adventures along the way – and we’ll continue to write “How to Choose” articles on camping, paddling, and hiking equipment.
We’re looking forward to celebrating Canada’s 150th birthday with you!
