This website follows the adventures of Wayne and Brad Jennings, a father and son team who feel more at home slogging across a rainy portage trail then lounging around the pool at a first class hotel. Join us as we discover the beauty of the Canadian wilderness while we explore the scenic wonders of our home province, Ontario. On these web pages you’ll find articles, tips, gear guides, and of course, high definition videos highlighting the many journeys we’ve embarked upon.
And just what do we mean when we use the term backcountry? To us, a backcountry location is someplace you have to get to under your own power, whether that be on foot or snowshoe, in a kayak, or our preferred method of travel…a canoe. And once you reach your destination, it has to be off-the-grid! No electricity or running water on these adventures!
No, you won’t find any articles here describing drive-up RV campsites in The Pinery Provincial Park. Even though that’s one of our favorite parks in Ontario, it just doesn’t meet our criteria for backcountry exploration.
We hope these stories, tips, and videos inspire and encourage you to get out there and do some backcountry exploring of your own.
