WINTER FUN!

Winter Fun

Do you like Winter?

Folks ask me often the same question since I’ve been here, “Do you like winter?” It may sound surprising but I do! I like the change of atmosphere, the crisp of the snow and the fresh air. I like the smell of wood burning from the woodstove. I consider myself blessed to be able to experience the four seasons of this beautiful country, Canada.

During my first year in Quebec, Mike & I lived in a country where we used to get a lot of snow. It was a beautiful place from the Lord. Back then I saw many wild animals that passed by our road and that was amazing!

During the winter time, we would suit up and go outside and have fun. Even the simple task of shovelling was fun & exercise at the same time. I think my favorite was sliding on a crazy carpet ending up on the frozen pond; that was great!

A few years later when the house was sold we moved to a new location and sure enough we still had to do outdoor stuff. Mike initiated me to Snowshoeing. I personally like it better than skating.

Yesterday was an amazing day, a full perfection of everything; thank you Lord. The sun was beautiful, not too cold. Perfect weather, not windy at all; it was a very mild winter day.

I know that it’s WORK! But after doing it  you will be glad that you have done something in the forest and breath some fresh air, change your mind a little (refresh), have something to eat, play around with your gear and gadgets, and finish it with a good bonfire enjoying the good company of your friends or family.

It was a perfect beautiful day for Mike & I! I hope that you can enjoy the great outdoors & have fun even in the winter!

  1. I just love the winter. One thing is the mosquitos. They are not bugging me. But I live in the south in Georgia. (USA). It is rare to see snow where I live. But if it ever does, even though I am almost 65, I will play in it like a child.
    I enjoy watching you and Mike outdoors having so much fun. If I had someone to do camping I would go. I wouldn’t mind roughing it and I would try everything you two make. Being a diabetic and a female, I don’t think it’s a good idea to be alone in the woods.
    Besides your cooking which is so pretty and watching you two in the beautiful woods, I love that you two share about God. And Salvation. To me, God and nature goes hand in hand.
    I love you and Mike in the Lord.
    Thank you. Keep up the good work. God continue blessing you both.

    • Dear Ms. Sherry, thank you for the kind and encouraging words. God is good and He is the only reason why we do and keep doing what we do. It’s all about Jesus!

      Spring is here but the snow seems to want to linger a little bit more… we still have a few inches to melt in our area.

      Group camping might be possible for you if you have some folks/friends that would be interested to go, perhaps organize one, just make sure to bring lots of food :). Mike actually mentioned in one of our videos last year about car camping…we had fun! Here’s a link to the video if you’re interested: https://youtu.be/vk5mrcGppTA Yes, I agree with you, it is not a good idea to go by yourself.

      Take care Ms. Sherry. We appreciate your support to us. God Bless.

  2. Good day Kane Valley Skiers. I had a quick question. We’re loinkog to do some camping up the Vought Valley Road off Kane Valley Road (Boss Lake) on the April long weekend. Is there anyone in the area that can let me know the road conditions? Are we able to get into the lake? I know they plow Kane Valley Rd but I’m not sure about the Vought Valley turn off. Any information would be most helpful. Many kind regards for your help. Happy trails!Clayton

  3. Hey there! Huge fan of your videos man, they’re great. So I’m doing a winter camp in a week in the beautiful Pacific Northwest. (Seattle) and I just watched your beef jerkey video where y’all are cooking it over the fire. That looks amazing and I would like to try it! Mind filling me in on what meat/seasoning and all that? Really appreciate it and happy trails man!!! Keep making videos👍🏼👍🏼
