Ann & Sandy Cross Conservation Area – Hiking With Kids

Oh! The good ol’ Canadian Prairie – If your dog runs away you can watch it go for three days before it’s actually lost and the Mosquitoes are so big that they might as well be the provincial bird. Alberta, Saskatchewan, and Mantiboa with its capital city often referred to as Winterpeg. Not much to look forward to right? Maybe that might be the case for the outer flatlands, but I have a hard time lumping Alberta in...

RunBet – The kick in the ass that you probably need.

I’m too weak, my breakfast was too big. It’s raining outside. I’m too fat, I’m too thin. It’s too hot. I have a headache. I would love to really, but I just can’t. My favorite show is on.

DIY Oil Change in 10 min without tools and banking $250K to do it

A good buddy of mine Kyle commented the other day on how he would prefer to just pay someone to do his oil changes. He said something like “it’s just not worth it to change my oil and it’s easier to pay someone else to do it”. Despite doubting his manliness, I call BS on “not worth it” (sorry bud) and let me explain why. In a perfect world, everyone would be driving a tesla, walking, running, riding...
