shop is a personally curated mix of products I’ve researched or own.  It’s full of outdoor recreation gear, books and my own photography.  I receive a small commission (roughly 5%) on all Amazon product purchases and a larger percentage for my photography.

3) Click, Share, Subscribe, Like & Comment:

     Clicking on ads throughout the site helps pay for the yearly web hosting fees.  At a rate of pennies per click, it’s not much but it’s what pays that bill.  (With enough regular contributions or shop purchases, I’d gladly get rid of the ads).

Special Thanks

People, Organizations, & Businesses Who Have Helped Me Along The Way:

The Sackville Rivers Association

     Walter Regan is a wealth of knowledge and long been doing important, constructive work to benefit both the environment and the citizens of Halifax.  I was privileged to sit down with Mr. Regan to learn about the many factors at play with regards to the state of nature protection in our city.  A consistent “re-tweeter” of my Halifax Trails Twitter posts.

Friends of Blue Mountain-Birch Cove Lakes Society

     Doing great work to try to create North America’s largest urban wilderness park.  I’ve had informative discussions with board members including Richard Vinson and Mark Young.  Mark has a great YouTube channel and has been a supporter of my YouTube channel.

Willy’s Freshcut Fries & Burgers

     You haven’t truly experienced downtown Halifax if you didn’t stop at Willy’s.  Consistently voted the #1 poutine in the city.  A friend, good samaritan and supporter of everything I do.
