About Me and the Outdoor/Adventure Travel & Tour Industry
I founded the Outdoor/Environmental Education Department in the Surrey School District in British Columbia and wrote their original Field Trips Guide and Policy. I owned/operated Adventures in Store Tours Ltd for 16 years which included but not limited to the West Coast Trail, Escalante Trail Vancouver Island, Pacific Rim National Park and Johnstone Strait ocean kayaking, heli-hiking base camp in Stein Provincial Park, Tweedsmuir Provincial Park, Cathedral Provincial Park, Mt Edziza Provincial Park, Garibaldi Provincial Park, Arctic river trips and backpacking on Baffin Island. Also, I instructed outdoor pursuits which included courses, such as, flat and white water paddling, rock climbing, mountaineering, avalanche and snow ecology training, winter survival courses, nordic skiing, telemarking, and nature photography.

Simply select a time and a theme ie Long Exposure Photography, Zone System Photography (B&W) and we'll organize the excursion.
Wildlife excursions are scheduled specific to a wildlife event ie Ruffed Grouse drumming, Elk rutting season. Simply, inquire and register regarding a specific creature and we'll organize the excursion.
* Please note that although we know when and where the wildlife events occur we can't guarantee the animals will always be on location on the day on demand as they are wild animals. We will do our best to find the wildlife if the location we have chosen is unproductive.
