Well here it is. My first post on what I hope will be many. But before we get too far. Let me introduce myself to this big wide world that is the internet.
My name is Jay Brown but from now on I shall be called SaskHiker. There is that enough? Jeeze this blogging thing will be harder then I thought.
I have created this page for a sole purpose, and that purpose is to encourage others to get outside and explore nature. Whether that be by hiking, biking, quadding, sledding, boating or whatever means of transportation you can find. I don't believe you need to be Bear Grylls to get outside and explore. I will focus on promoting ways for you to start your outdoor adventures without having to take out a second mortgage first.
I come from a place called Saskatchewan. I was born and raised here, growing up in a small town Qu'Appelle (Fun Fact: Qu'Appelle was considered to be the capital of Saskatchewan but some back door politics lead to Regina becoming the capital, but that's another story) I grew up on what is best described as natural Saskatchewan prairie forest. I know that is a a bit of an oxymoron but it is true. There are forests in Saskatchewan, even in the south!
It was here that I learned to appreciate the outdoors, my older brothers and I would spend countless hours outside exploring our backwoods. Finding coyote and deer tracks, scaring birds and building tree forts.
I know live in Saskatoon, the provinces largest city and in my opinion one of the best cities in Canada. Where I have continued to foster a love for all things outdoors and Saskatchewan.
Many people do not think there are natural places to explore in this province and that is is best to just keep your cruise a buck-25 (125km/hr) as you fly down the number TransCanada Highway. I have found even long time residents of this province do not know what is in our own very backyard. I want to correct that line of thinking by taking people outside and into the beauty that is Saskatchewan.
My motto has and always be, "Go outside. There's fun stuff out there."
