Hi – thanks for visiting my blog. My name is Joanne, and I believe that life is what you make it. Some people prefer to keep it safe and stay within their comfort zone, however I think that life is really lived skipping along the edges of my comfort level. It often means pushing the limit of what makes me a little afraid and facing down that fear. This philosophy has been an excellent guide throughout my life so I’m inclined to continue following it.
I am retired now and I’ve discovered that my passion for a “life on the edge” hasn’t diminished. As I explore this next chapter of my life, this blog will be about my stories – both past and present.
After hiking the 900 km Bruce Trail, the 280 km Oak Ridges Moraine Trail, and climbing Kilimanjaro, in 2017 I’ve embarked on probably my most ambitious goal yet … to hike the Trans-Canada Trail. Rebranded as The Great Trail, it is 24,000 km of connected trails from Canada’s coast to coast to coast.

I hope you will enjoy your visit to my blog and find my stories entertaining, thought provoking, or perhaps even a little inspiring.
