The Sunshine Coast Trail

 236.5 km/147 miles, 11 days, British Columbia, Canada

           Watch as Gay Man Walking embarks on another adventure! This time down the Sunshine Coast Trail in Canada, which is already setting itself up to have some high expectations attached to it, weather-wise. 'Twas appropriately named for most of the duration of his visit, even if he found it actually too appropriately named: the sunshine stole a lot of the water from the streams that Ross was banking on using to, well, you know, exist as a bamboozled hiker in the woods.

             Join him as he trudges for 11 days through the lush and demanding rainforest,  and also one town road, which had a pub on it, and chalk penises drawn along the sidewalk. So the council did receive the memo and prepared the town for his arrival. He gives the SCT 10 Chalk Penises out of 10!  

            The ins-and-outs of his journey down the 236.5km long hut--to-hut (or at some points, mouse-house-to-mouse-house) trail are here, for your entertainment, education, and misinformation. Who knows? Maybe through all the emotional confessionals, plethora of mistakes made, and overall doe-eyed enthusiasm Ross has for hiking most of the thing, you may gain some insight into what life could be like on trail, the Sunshine Coast Trail in general, and how to be okay with the fact that after sleeping in a hut you may wake up to small mice droppings beside your face, leading you to realise that at least one mouse (but probably more, there's never just one) had been sleeping by your mouth to keep warm overnight. How can one become okay with breathing on mice all night without getting out there and at least trying!? No matter how many times he shudders deeply at that memory, the trail was very engaging, dotted with spectacular views, tough in all the right ways, and full of so many moments to distract him from mice related thoughts.

          Feel free to send him a message here if you have any questions, comments, concerns, feedback, free money, pizza, or just want to tell him the answers to so many of the questions he asks about the nature he films yet know absolutely nothing about. Buckle in for a wild ride of emotions, a dying bald eagle, a tea party set up in the woods with guests (Ross, and invisible friends), and a curious squirrel who may be as absolutely not-shy towards humans with food as Ross is (wish he came to the tea party too, this will all make sense soon...)..Enjoy!
