Currently we are scratching out an existence in the beautiful Annapolis Valley of Nova Scotia. We find ourselves in the most “normal” phase of our life so far, living under the same roof for over a year, working steadily and dreaming of the next big adventure.
We were both inducted into the Explorer’s club as of January, 2014, a huge honour for us!
Every month we host a speaker series entitled “Night of Adventure”. We bring in a different speaker every month to talk about a trip they have done in the past. Dave recognized a lack of organized community around the outdoors in our town although we know there are all sorts of great people doing all sorts of great things. As an experiment we offered the series as an opportunity for like-minded folks to get together, swap stories and inspire each other to get out there and try new things. It has been extremely well-received and successful!
Dave and Adrien are toying with the idea of starting a small outfitting business focused on great food, beautiful scenery and wonderful memories. They would offer canoe, hiking and winter trips. Adrien has become a whiz bang at dehydrating delicious, packable and complete meals. Her menus and meal plans are pretty awesome born out of years of experience. She has thoughts on organizing this into a side business to offer folks with dietary concerns, a hatred of extreme salt levels in pre-packaged camping food or simply love of good food at the end of a hard day on trip. Meals would be affordable, custom made and practical.
