Some of my pictures will be on display at Maison Vale Hospice in Greater Sudbury this may/June, so if you would like to see some of my prints, they will be available at any time during those 2 month. You can also check out this beautiful Hospice and the work they do for our loved ones. My mom passed away there this past fall and they were above and beyond with the care they gave her.

Passed my 1000'th Geocache the past year in Mexico, going back next week.

Check out my latest added video McConnell Fire Tower Geocache I finally got it finished and will now be able to update more often

Check out my Memories From Maple Mountain Video for a truly ultimate cache. It's now in one full video, much easier to watch.

Great , you found it.
This is my web pages, full off pics, video's and adventures.
I am an outdoors enthusiast with a love for nature. Going out and just enjoying the beauty life has to offer, there is so much around us, but most don't stop and enjoy. I do. This world we call home has all the things man needs to be happy, so escape the hectic pace and relax and enjoy.

About Me
I like offroading, hunting, fishing, photography and for the last 5 years, Geocaching. These activities have taken me to many amazing places, many right here in Ontario where I've been living for the last 20 years. I have been documenting some of these journeys which will be shared here. Like going to Ishapatina Ridge, Ontario's highest elevation. Maple Mountain, Lion's Head Lookout and many old fire towers in Ontario. See my 4000 + pictures and 480 videos.

Simply Red
Simply Red was the name I gave my Nissan 4X4 back in 1988. It's taken me to many places and what started me into the outdoors. Check out some old video's when Simply Red was still looking good. You can see loads more on my Youtube channel as well as many other videos. From wildlife to GeoCache locations, to boating, kayaking quading and much more.
