Welcome to The Hinterland Princes

Thanks for visiting The Hinterland Princes!

Welcome to my little site! I hope you’ll hang out a bit. There’s lots of stuff to be read over to the left, in the sidebar, and one day in the future, there will be lots of blog contents to read as well. Hopefully. 🙂

In the meanwhile, this is a list of some of the things I hope to write about, eventually:

  1. Camping with both my boys.
  2. How much I love my tent.
  3. That time we went to Vancouver Island and spent the night on the beach.
  4. Getting the whole family (including my lively wife) out and active in the winter.
  5. Finding something awesome waaaaaay off the beaten trail.
  6. Both boys attempting something way more epic than I could imagine right now.

I hope you’ll stick with us for the long haul!
