Tick Reminder

Again, we are reminding members that tick season is in full swing, especially with the weather getting warmer out.  Take precautions by wearing light coloured clothing, gaiters are best to wear to keep them off your lower pant leg area, wearing clothing made of smoother textile material is also a benefactor for making it slippery for them to latch onto you,  stay out of the tall dried grasses if possible and always do a tick check when you are done hiking. Remove all your hiking gear promptly when you get home and toss in the wash or a bag tied up to wash later.  If you bring your furry four legged companion, be sure to do a thorough check of them too!

Anthony Stahn

As a flatlander from Manitoba I have always been captivated by the mountains of the west. Moving to Kamloops has provided me with the perfect base camp to explore those very peaks that pulled our family west. My typical hiking style can be summed up with "Nothing ventured, nothing gained". Bushwhacking has become an acceptable form of travel for me as it seems that a lot of the great spots are off trail. Hikes done by myself and Marty tend to fall into this category so don't be surprised if this happens on a Marant hike. You can find more information at http://marantrambles.ca. Happy Hiking!
