"Rumon Carter and Jennie Sprigings [are] an energetic couple based in Victoria who have fully embraced a lifestyle of discovery on Vancouver Island. Their love for multisport nature adventures is geared towards internal growth and reflection as much as it is a thrill seeking activity. For this couple, the planning and the journey are as important as the destination. They are passionate about community, storytelling, and strengthening connections to land and people through shared wilderness experiences." ~ People of the Wild, Destination BC

It was a surprise and an honour when we received a message from Destination BC recently, querying whether we'd be interested in being profiled on their blog as part of their People of the Wild series, "profiling residents of British Columbia who have one thing in common: their love for exploring the BC wild." 

There's no question we love our BC wild, especially that which we can find in abundance by exploring right outside our door on Vancouver Island, so we were only too happy to share a little of that love, a few stories, and our thoughts on the best days and best places to be had in BC. Please give it a read, let us know what you think and, should you be inclined, share it with your friends - we'd love nothing more than to play some small part in supporting as many folks as possible to find, share and keep their wild on this Island paradise of ours. 

When you're there, be sure to click through at the bottom of the interview to explore the rest of the People of the Wild profiles - there are some great stories there.
