Preston was born in Hamilton, Ontario. As a young child, he would wander off into the woods looking for what was out there, and has never really grown out of that. He spends every chance he can get wandering around the Ontario wilderness. When back in the city, he spends half his time entertaining others with tales of his adventures, the other half boring others with the same – never quite sure which. He started this website as an outlet to tell his tales to the right audience. He’s also particularly funny and when not portaging enjoys writing in the third person.
