Living life with adventure, passion and inspiration!
At its basic level, life is a journey; a trail composed of many steps – most are good to great; while others are difficult and trying; all of those taking us to places we never thought we’d end up in.
Hiking, as well as other outdoor adventure activities, I think can be seen as a metaphor for living. Both are journey’s filled with scores of good and not so good steps. Highs and lows; successes and failures.
Life and the outdoors each provide us with lessons to be learned if: we are willing to stop, observe and listen.
“justabitfurther” came into being to record our hiking and outdoor adventures as a window into living. We work at it by trying to discover and explore the beauty and wilderness that is found in Ontario and beyond through hiking and photography.
As much as our goal is to provide trip reports and photo-essays of our adventures, more importantly our desire is to inspire others regardless of your circumstances in life, to get outside and live.
We’re all at different stages along our path of life; sometimes the hardest part is simply taking that first step to get outside; taking that first step to climb over whatever personal stumbling blocks are in your path.
Be encouraged to take that first step.
We’re a couple of +50-year-old hikers; adventurers and outdoor enthusiasts who enjoy craft beer(Glen); peach schnapps(Lynn).
We are now “empty nesters”, assuming our daughter gains employment when college is finished. In fact, we’ve taken our enjoyment found in hiking and outdoor pursuits, with Lynn’s passion of photography and combined them into one – “photohiking”; “pic walk”; or how about “let’s hike and take 500 pics”.
Well, regardless of what you might call it, this is our expedition. Take a read of our first blog from June 2016. It helps to define or explain the genesis of what we’re about.
As time moves along, we hope you find our writing informative, funny, maybe even
You’ll find a ton of information, links to other sites, and articles we’ve found useful, plus whatever else we think might help you to get out and go “justabitfurther.”
Thanks for joining us on this journey.
Glen and Lynn
