Although I now live in Western Canada, I was born and raised in Ontario. This explains a few things, most notably why I know how to handle a puck better than a frisbee, but it also tells another tale. I’ve always been someone who likes to do things differently than the norm (the exception that proves the rule is that I did play hockey while growing up in southern Ontario). And so, while sprouting up as a youngster in the fairly mundane environment of cornfields, asphalt, and the odd beach, I would (when I wasn’t playing hockey) occasionally embark on little forays into the wilderness “up north”. There I would find what was different to me: solitude in nature. Over the years, this yearning for wilderness grew, to the point of drawing me away from the indoor rinks of youth, into a lifestyle of exploration in the mountains and beyond.
