I pitched a tent and climbed a mountain while topless hippy chicks went back to their van down by the river

I see what you did there.

I have a similar story except instead of hot hippy chicks I've got norona on an ebike.

Wrong. Always.

I hiked up to Marriot Basin and swam in a cold lake. Enough of a breeze came up to blow the smoke out of the Pemby area for the afternoon. Great day but I didn't take many pics.

Right on! My father proposed to my mother in a canoe, eh? And that was a long, long time ago…………

Not trying to top it but joining in the marriage love..

I especially like this photo sequence of my father and my father in-law eating and drinking together after our wedding. So awesome, they couldn't speak a word to each other but somehow managed to communicate so much.

Some assorted pics of Cape Scott, and strathcona parks. What an amazing little island this is, I can't believe so many people choose not to get out there and see these kinds of things.

Ha Ha! Made you look.

So awesome. Keep them coming.

But over here it is sort of similar, such nice areas and places one can find. And a lot of people rather stay at home, watch tv or read about adventures instead of getting out, and going to places.

NBR is long overdue for a revival of this thread; time to forget about whining about other people whining about other people whining, time to forget about guns for a while, time to forget about people riding too fast or too slow - does anyone actually have a life outside of this place and do cool things with your spare time?

So what's everyone been up to past and present?

in 2015 I took a trip to Utah to go mountain biking and hiking for a while, also checked out some national parks and did some canyoneering in Zion. One of the highlights of my life for sure, hope to make it back down there at some time again when the dollar picks up. Being in the desert is like an ongoing acid trip, pretty cool down there IMO. So here we go;

Poaching some slickrock in Zion National Park with a gaggle of tourists watching from the parking lot, really hoping I didn't eat shit here. First time riding slickrock down there and I was expecting great traction but as soon as I dropped in and touched the brakes I was out of control so it was a rather tense, white knuckle descent back to the parking lot and a bunch of cheering retirees. I briefly felt like a hero for the first time in my life:

Here's another shot for scale perspective. Can you spot the rider?

We did some canyoneering and some hiking in the slot canyons down there too. I'm terrified of heights so this was pretty fun. 15 rappels in this route with the highest being over 150 feet. Just about pooped my pants a few times:

Pretty cool scenery in the canyons, never seen anything like this before:

Followed by more mountain biking:

simple living in the desert..pretty cool up on the mesas:

After this trip I came back and had some more time off so I spent a month or so finishing a trail I had started to build the year before. Tying together the last few loose ends was pretty rewarding and building some ramps for the first time in 10 years was also real fun:

Then it was time to go back to work. For the next 7 months I worked 12-14hr days so not much worth mentioning happened except I ate and slept alot and barely rode my bike. Finally I finished up my season in late november and it's been business as usual for the past while:
