Oh, the Places You’ll Go…

photo1We thought it would be fun to do a post about our favorite Nature's Bakery Fig Bars "Taking a vacation" with us so you could get the inside scoop on what it's like for a pro golfer on the PGA Tour Canada.

First up, we loaded all of our favorite snacks in the backpack and headed up to Canada!

We were all a little nervous about this TINY airplane on the last leg of the trip, but we prayed the entire 50 minutes and God helped us feel peace and comfort through the turbulence and loud noises of a small airplane.  photo2

photo4We arrived on the weekend when Jared was finishing up the Great Waterway Classic in Kingston. I got to caddy the final round. Fig Bars fueled the final round FIVE UNDER! Jared finished T19 that weekend.  Jared has a tradition of wearing Red, White, and Blue on Sundays, and it was a fun Sunday for sure!

photo5After the round, we headed on what was supposed to be an easy hour and a half drive to Toronto to pick up a rental car, and then drive another 2 hours to our new host house for the week, but it ended up turning into a super long drive due to crazy Toronto traffic and the GPS messing up. But, God protected us and we made it to our host house around 11:30pm.

We were SO blessed with an incredible host house to stay in for the week. It was Jared's DREAM home. It was right on a lake and he got to fish in his downtime. We are so incredibly grateful for host housing because it helps save a ton of money. Golf is NOT cheap!  photo6

We enjoyed the lovely view for our morning devotionals.photo7

We stayed in the boathouse, and it had a small kitchen, so Jared made a fancy breakfast of turkey bacon and eggs on our practice round morning. We stick to the usual Peanut Butter and Banana Toast on tournament days to fuel us. photo8

The host family made us dinner two nights and we enjoyed talking with them! We had a fire pit one night. They volunteered at the tournament a couple nights, so we did our own thing and explored a little town called Lake Field and had the BEST PANINI of our lives!  It was filled with Smoked Ham, Apple, Caramelized Onions, and DOUBLE CREAM BRIE CHEESE! It was incredible!

photo9Unfortunately, Jared missed the cut at this tournament. It happens. Golf is full of ups and downs. We decided to make the most of it and turned my last two days with Jared into an opportunity to explore downtown Toronto!

We took plenty of Fig Bars to keep our hunger at bay in between meals. We walked 10 miles in one day! We wanted to see as much as we could! It was lots of fun just being together and seeing things that we have never seen before. It was my first time riding on a Subway. The Waterfront was absolutely beautiful!   photo10


We were so thankful that God blessed us with the opportunity to be together during the middle of a 5 week stretch on the road for Jared. It's never easy parting ways, but we are choosing to focus on the positives and remember all the blessings that God has given us!


Fig Bars (and Kelsey) had a great time in Canada, EH! 


Giving Back to the Community

Junior Tahoe Waterman Camp

Four years ago, Anik and I had a vision to share our passion for paddle sports and Lake Tahoe with the local community.  Our goal was to give local kids the opportunity to enjoy Lake Tahoe while providing them with tools and knowledge about water safety, water awareness and proper paddling technique for Stand Up Paddleboarding, Prone Paddleboarding, Outrigger Canoe Canoeing and open water swimming.

In the winter of 2011, The Junior Waterman Camp was created to offer a unique, dynamic waterman environment in which the participants...

Back to Basics

Adventurer | Denis Isbister

Growing up out west my fishing addiction began with extended family trips to Eastern Nevada chasing trout in small creeks or “crik’s” and high desert reservoirs. As I grew older, the urge to find more remote destinations and bigger fish drove me to far-reaching places like Belize and Northern Saskatchewan to explore wild new destinations.  When I started my fishing show Wild Fish Wild Places, I wanted it to be all about the crazy travel and...

One of the Most Brutal, but Beautiful…

The last couple years I have had the opportunity to take my bike with me when traveling during our summer vacation. I look over maps of the area I am going to be in and search out possible routes. Last year I had the opportunity to ride up Trail Ridge Road (Once in a Lifetime). This year I was in Utah, visiting friends in Park City. I knew that Midway was on the other side of the mountain, and there was a road that connected the two. This has been part of a stage of the...

Tips For Women Who Want to Start Mountain Biking

I've been mountain biking since I was about 10 years old. My father got my brother and I into it as soon as he heard about it. For me it was natural and I assumed it would be for everyone else as well. Most people know how to ride a bike by the time they are an adult, why would mountain biking be any different?

I think the first time I realized my advantage of starting early was when I started mountain bike instructing at Northstar Resort in Truckee, CA a...

Colombian Bam Bam!!

Gazing across the magnificent vista on the Tomo River in Eastern Colombia

Have you ever bathed under a full moon, in a Piranha infested river, where you have to shuffle your feet along in the sand in order to move the Stingrays out of your way? Well now I have and it was a pretty amazing experience!

When I mention to people that we are going to the country of Colombia to film a fishing show, there is usually a funny stare, a slight pause and then questions. A couple of...
