Gayle is a lifelong camper, hiker, and outdoors enthusiast. She loves to share her passion for getting outside, exploring and doing stuff as the creator of the blog Sometimes Eventful, as well as founder and host of the weekly #WeGetOutside Twitter Chat and WeGetOutside Community and WeGetOutside Guelph Facebook groups. Gayle was also a proud Halton Parks People Ambassador in 2018 and 2019, sharing her love for the Halton Conservation Areas found on the Niagara Escarpment.
Raised and based in Guelph, her outdoor pursuits are mainly in Ontario, where she is a Certified Hike Leader and holds an Ontario Recreational Canoe and Kayak Association (ORCKA) Level 3 Basic Canoe certification.
While Guelph, Ontario is home, but she is no stranger to combining her enthusiasm for the outdoors and international travel. She has camped across the country of Greece, rafted on the Iguazu River to Iguazu Falls in Brazil, hiked down Table Mountain in Cape Town South Africa, trail-ridden horses through the rainforests of Belize, zip-lined in Costa Rica and hiked through the rainforests of Panama.
Gayle is a four season outdoors person. Hiking, camping, paddling and snowshoeing are all things she loves to do with her husband, Alex, daughter, Emma and fearless Jack Russel Terrier, Buddy. While she loves the solace and roughing-it on a backcountry canoe trip, Gayle and her family are equally comfortable “glamping” in a pop-up tent trailer or in a wood-stove warmed hot tent.
