I love day-hiking with my wife. I also do 2-day week-end hikes or canoe trips with my sons. Every year I go for a longer solo hike of 4 to 8 days.

My trail recipes

Notable hikes:

2012: Lion’s Head (section of the Bruce Trail, Ontario)

2018: La Cloche Silhouette (Killarney Provincial Park, Ontario)

2019: 125 km in the International Appalachian Trail in the Parc National de la Gaspésie


Everything is in my LighterPack list.

My lightest setup, stove-less, has a base weight (everything but the food, including backpack, tent, sleeping bag, etc) of 4kg.
