Doug Smith

Retired now, I get into the outdoors most days to hike, paddle, camp, run, snowshoe, or explore. Some of my activities involve more difficult routes, but a few are also suitable for moderately fit people who like a bit of a challenge. Since I am out several times a week, I post one (or two) event(s) each week and I invite a small group of like-minded people to join me. Kamloops Trails

    All of the posted Rambles will be subject to Air Quality conditions. If the forecast is for High Risk, we will be cancelling the event. With the wildfire situation, events will be not be enabled for registration until about a week out. We can hopefully return to our usual type of events in the fall.

    Sorry to cancel Doug, but I’m a wee bit behind on a major homework assignment that’s due on Friday and I have no recourse but to hunker down here at home and hit the books till she’s done. Hope you have an awesome day!
