Each new year and season comes with it a set of dates that can be looked at as opportunities to get out and explore or try something new. The challenge set forth is to take advantage of the calendar, vacation days, and your set financial resources to enjoy a bit of something different. No matter what level of these stated items you have, you can figure out how to plan adventures into your life.
The trip list for this past year is a bit short (New Orleans, Rochester, and Montreal), however a number of day trips or adventures around town can be added to the list in order to get a complete picture of what has happened. The New Orleans trip included a day trip out to the bayou as well as good music on Market Street. Rochester was a cottage on the lake trip. The Montreal trip included an over night stay at Charleston Lake Provincial Park, and a day of UCI racing at the Grand Prix of Montreal.
My every day adventure is biking in Toronto in a variety of weather, and traffic conditions. The road surfaces leave a lot to be desired, and the bike lanes are good but more are needed. Riding on the urbane trail: your dangers are cars, foot traffic not watch their crossing signals, and street car rails embedded in the road surface. Toronto is fairly bicycle friendly, but there are many automobile drivers which believe that it is justifiable to break traffic laws in order to make up for bad planning. On the flip side there are many cyclist which suffer from a condition known as, "Am I a vehicle or a pedestrian?"
RockCairn.com has been setup to act as a marker, waypoint, and guide to the outdoors. The focus of this site was initially on Colorado and climbing the fourteen thousand foot peaks in that great state, but now most of the recently added content is on Ontario. Also to diversify the content a bit some general adventure travel destinations have been reported on. From the reports on climbing fourteen thousand foot peaks to the mixed sport adventure travel reports, this site aims to advise you on planning, packing, and executing your next adventure outing.
