Now here’s something you don’t see every day, a rap battle about the best type of camping! I’m all for minimalist camping, but ever since my sons were born I’ve really learned to really appreciate glam-ping. It certainly doesn’t hurt that my girlfriend works at MEC and we have access to incredible camping gear!
We have been pretty spoiled when it comes to pike fishing. We have had the opportunity to fish some of the best pike water in the world, not once, but twice! Originally we visited Sportsman’s Lodge on Little Vermilion Lake in 2005 and we were promised big pike. Not only did we catch big pike, but we got a lot of pike. Finding fish was easy on our first trip, but in 2007 things were very different on Little Vermilion. We faced extremely cold weather and high winds at the end of May and leading into June. We battled through snow and rain early on, and by our last day of fishing the sun was shining and the weather warmed up. We didn’t catch as many fish, but we had several fish over 40 inches, and a couple that weren’t too far from 50.
Take a look at our original report for Little Vermilion Lake 2007
I can still remember the excitement of going to summer camp when I was a child. I learned a lot about the outdoors and I think it really helped to shape my love of the wilderness. Today Tim Horton’s will be donating 100% of their proceeds on every coffee sold to the Tim Horton Children’s Foundation, which in turn will help disadvantaged kids go to camp. As if you needed an excuse to drink more coffee today.
On June 3rd, buy a coffee at Tim Hortons and youâ€™ll be helping to send even more kids to camp this year. Restaurant owners will donate 100% of the proceeds from every coffee sold to the Tim Horton Childrenâ€™s Foundation, which sends economically disadvantaged kids to one of our camps for the experience of a lifetime. This one day has the power to give thousands of kids from the community the chance to have an amazing opportunity.
You don’t drink coffee? Don’t worry, you can still donate here!
