Dear friends... what can I say about this blog's neglect other than that it has been for a worthy cause? I have been enjoying life offline over the past couple of months, and even did some traveling which I can't wait to tell you about!
My hopes to keep up on blogging while cooking for the treeplanters was at best optimistic, and at worst delusional. Its true that as an experienced camp cook I did have more free time this year compared to last year, but I ended up spending most of that free time napping and hanging out with my lovely treeplanters...this guy in particular.
After the planting season Steve and I made a short trip to Vancouver Island and then flew from Comox BC to Calgary Alberta to begin an epic roadtrip across Canada with friends Katharina and Malerie (also a part of the NYC team)! We took about 20 days to trek from West Coast to East Coast and back again...a whirlwind trip to say the least! In that time we were able to visit Niagara Falls, Toronto, Montreal, Newfoundland, Halifax, PEI, Quebec City, and Ottawa. I will be documenting the trip in more detail in posts to come, so stay tuned!
