Well, winter is officially done, and we’re back to the simplicity of spring / summer adventures. But simple though it may be (at least I don’t generally summer-hike with my probe, transceiver, and shovel), there’s still a few things to keep in mind as we get back out there on dirt.

A long-unoccupied building in Fernie collapsed recently. Gratefully nobody was hurt, and it is now moving toward orderly demolition. In my memory it was a commercial storefront. When I was a boy, it was it was a Pop Shoppe, where you excitedly took your plastic crate of empties and, after returning them, you refilled the crate with a selection of your favourites like Cream Soda and Black Cherry, flavours the thought of which today make my teeth ache in my jaw.
