This blog has taken a backseat in recent weeks because I just recently finished another year of school and am currently out in the field working in gold exploration.

What can I say about northwestern Ontario, apart from the fact that it’s where I’ll be spending the majority of my summer? It’s a beautiful place, but it’s also very desolate and lonely. Every morning our helicopter pilot flies me and my co-worker over miles of boreal forest, hopping from lake to lake in search of the next big find.

It can be a very interesting life, but also a life that makes you question a lot of your priorities. I can only be vague because at this point in the game I’m not sure exactly what I’m trying to say… except maybe that what I’m really looking for is very, very far away?

Yeah, that.
