When we’re not in the great outdoors, we’re talking about the great outdoors. If we’re not talking about it, then we are guaranteed to be thinking about it. If we’re not thinking about it…..well, let’s just be honest, we’re always thinking about it.
The TwoCanoe crew can’t get enough of the outdoor lifestyle. When we are indoors, we’re often surfing the internet, reading our favorite outdoor blogs or watching our favorite wilderness youtubers. Here we have listed some of our favorite resources so that you can enjoy them as much as we do.
- Mountain Equipment Co-op
Not only is Mountain Equipment Co-op our favorite store. They also have one of our favorite blogs.
- Backcountry With the Kids
A family blog with advice on wilderness tripping with your kids. It’s great for those of you who aren’t parents too!
If you didn’t already know, there are four writers for our blog. It’s fun to see a new posts by each of us.
Crocket creates videos about backpacking, knives, climbing, canyoneering, guns, and a pinch of martial arts. His videos are entertaining, and he is one of the youtuber’s who have inspired us to create our videos as well.
- Maddy the Goose
While it doesn’t seem that Maddy the Goose has uploaded a new video in quite some time. We’ve watched each of his tripping videos over the past winter while we waited for the spring season to kick into gear so that we could get out there and start tripping too.
- The Happy Camper (includes blog, youtube videos)
Kevin Callan’s quirky personality is a great example of someone who has fun in the outdoors. His videos, blog, and books have influenced all of us at TwoCanoe.
- Grub ‘n Gear
Grub ‘n Gear is relatively new to us but it’s a great resource to include in your trip planning.
- Outside Online
Outside’s website is a great counterpart to their magazine. Lots of useful articles relating to everything outdoors.
- Ontario Parks
If you live in Ontario and you’ve visited any of our Provincial Parks then you’ve probably been to this website. It’s very useful in not only booking your stay at a park, but planning your trips as well. They provide park updates and plenty of information to help in planning your stay.
This is just a small splattering of resources that we like. Feel free to share in the comments some of your favorite go-to references that help you plan, learn, and enjoy.
