  • Day #10

    From Peanuts to the Point… So today was the start of the first of our 7 weekends in Fort Hope. I will be away for 8 weekends total, but only 7 of them will take place here in Eabametoong. Last night we stayed up rather late watching the movie Simon Birch. I know that I`ve […]

  • Day #9

    Food, Run, Tag and Internet Today was a day of firsts. It was our first day with internet, our first day with real food, my first run and my first day playing tag outside with the kids for an hour and a half. Today I took the plunge and went for my first run in […]

  • Day #8

    Dynamic… So as you probably can tell, we are still currently without internet…I’m actually rather proud of myself that I have been able to keep writing consistently everyday to this point. Today was the biggest planning day that we have had for the camps so far. After yesterday’s long day of registrations and Canada Day […]

  • Day #7

    Happy Canada Day from Fort Hope… Happy Canada Day! Well, after last night’s rather melancholy entry, I woke up this morning feeling (tired of course) a little bit more positive.

    Let’s Start Now, for Real… I have officially arrived in Fort Hope…I will write more when I have a consistent internet connection…

  • Day #5

    Into the Breach… I am legitimately excited. This simple statement might not seem like a major victory or success at this point in the trip, but wow, am I ever relieved to be feeling what I am feeling right now. I mean, that being said, let’s keep it all in perspective. I am not necessarily […]

  • Day #4

    Directionally Challenged… Today started out at an ungodly hour. I woke up at about 5:15am and made my way downstairs for my run out to the Terry Fox monument. Sadly, as directionally challenged teenagers do, Natasha and I managed to get completely turned around and likely ran in approximately the opposite direction of the monument. […]

  • Day #3

    More and more thoughts… Sorry to be boring tonight, but you’re not going to get very much out of me. I am tired yes, but the real reason you aren’t going to get a lot out of me is because of my absolutely asinine plan to wake up tomorrow morning and join my friend Natasha […]
