On the hunt for snowshoes

Being a Canadian, I am guilty, just like many many others of complaining about the heat in the summer and the cold in the winter. Really..I think our bodies go through year-round shocks.

” AHH!!This heat!!”  * slowly adjusts to hot weather* then BAM -25 celcius! *slowly adjusts to the cold* and then, by the time we’ve fully adjusted it’s time to change again.

I am however a firm believer that every season can be enjoyable so long as you have an activity. Of course if you shut yourself in and watch the snow accumulate, it’s not going to be fun. Shorter days, colder weather..but you can’t just stop there! Look at all the people who ski and snowboard, they love winter! If those sports are not your thing, there are still plenty more to choose from; cross country skiing, snowshoeing, ice climbing, sledding, dog sledding, sleigh riding, snowmobiling, ice fishing and so many more that I can’t think of! Just pick one!!

I chose snowshoeing, so today, I’m on a mission to find an affordable pair. I mean lets face it..i’ll only use them a few months a year, they don’t need to be anything fancy! This has proven slightly difficult so far because most pairs I’ve found have been up around the 170$ mark. Ick!! Fingers crossed that I find a good deal somewhere!

Now go, you winter complainers! Find a fun winter activity!! 🙂

    No snow over here in Belgium and not as cold as in Canada for sure. Still, my winter activities are restricted to feeding the birds and all our animal friends outside, an occasional walk in the nearby forest 🙂 and a bike trip to work.
    Can’t imagine what it’s like -25° ??? We’re already complaining when it has frozen and it’s -1° 🙂
    Good luck with your snowshoe hunt!
