It is becoming increasingly clear the planet is trying to tell us it is sick of our crap and it is done playing. The latest example? A firenado sucking a team of firefighters’ hose into the sky.
Massive, ravaging wildfires are now the norm on the West Coast, with the state of California now regularly breaking fire records, Canada’s British Columbia experiencing the third-worst fire season in recorded history, and all the smoke from those fires spreading across much of the continent and even further. But don’t…
Just when you think this wildfire season can’t get worse, something new comes along to remind you this year is truly one of rare horrors.
Some personal news: I’m about done with wildfires.
Wildfires are tearing across regions in the western US and Canada, forcing over 15,000 residents to flee their homes. Hot, dry, and windy conditions are fueling the fires, many of which are expected to grow over the coming days. Discouragingly, wildfire season has only just begun.
300 miles north of Vancouver lies the Great Bear Rainforest. It’s a huge, rugged, chunk of land with ample diversity of scenery, and the best part is that it is very, very sparsely populated. Think Yellowstone minus the tourists. In a nutshell, you want to go to there.
Western Canada is getting absolutely hammered by wildfires right now. At the moment, there are at least 182 reported wildfires burning in British Columbia, as these shocking satellite images make painfully clear.
Last September, I traveled to British Columbia with Aether Apparel for a 1,200-mile adventure motorcycle ride through its remote fjords and mountains. Now, there’s beautiful video we shot along the way.
"Aggressively priced" at just over $2.1 million: the awesomely retro Enchanted Forest, located in an actual old-growth forest in British Columbia. The owners, who built up the park in the 1950s and 60s, are retiring ... which means this is your chance to take over (pet dragon included).
Two weeks ago, we rode big, heavy adventure bikes off-road through some of the remotest portions of British Columbia. It was a challenge, sure, and it was pretty, of course, but it was also one of those rare adventures that meant something special. Here's why.
Victoria, British Columbia experienced a tiny earthquake this afternoon. It poses no threat, but its location within a dense seismograph network and proximity to population centers make it an ideal case study for comparing measured and perceived shaking.
A shallow magnitude 6.6 earthquake hit offshore of Vancouver Island, British Columbia on Wednesday night. That’s larger than the Christchurch earthquake and was felt hundreds of kilometers away in Vancouver, yet no damage or injuries were reported. Why? Location, location, location.
Books, at least as we first knew them, are dying. It hurts. But one library in Surrey, British Columbia wants to keep the old boy alive by making it more interactive. No e-readers. You'll be checking people out! Umm?
You're cruising down the road, nearing a school zone, when BAM! Out of nowhere, a little girl chasing her ball across the street appears. Your heart races, you slam on the brakes, and then her image dissolves. What?
Oh boy—where even to start with this one. Use of penile plethysmography (PPG), which measure your penis for arousal while viewing questionable content, is being ceased by the Canadian government. After being used on kids for 25 years.
