Grooming STEEP SLOPES with a WINCH-CAT GROOMER at Fernie Alpine Resort, BC
 
09:20
Grooming steep slopes requires the use of a winch to help pull the cat (groomer) up the mountainside, and so it doesn't slide down the mountain while trying to groom the terrain. In this video, I go for a ride along with Blair who has been grooming at Fernie Alpine Resort for the last 30 years! People like Blair are the unsung heroes of the mountain, and so I made this video to ensure they get the credit they deserve, as well as to give you some insight as to how it is done with these awesome machines! As always, I hope you enjoy the video, and subscribe to be a part of future videos (www.YouTube.com/DownieLive). My Gear!

A DAY ON A TUGBOAT - Behind The Scenes with Harken Towing
 
06:20
The deckhand fell in and the captain flooded the boat! I got to ride on a tugboat! It has always been a dream of mine to ride on a tug, and Harken Towing was very kind to let me follow along and film what it's like for them behind-the-scenes. A day in the life of a tugboat team if you will. There are 2 members on a boat. The skipper, Ken (captain), and the deckhand, Brett. These 2 guys were kind and unsuspecting but they were true professionals when you got on the boat. They are skilled in ways I had never seen before, and being on a tugboat was a lot more exciting than I expected. We spent the day pulling and connecting log booms, as well as helping to push a barge through a bridge, all on the Fraser River, between Vancouver and Port Coquitlam. What are your thoughts on tugboats? Is this what you expected it to be like on a tug? Have you seen Harken Towing in action before?

EVERGLADES AIRBOAT RIDE - Florida Gator Park Tour
 
04:41
An everglades airboat tour, viewing wild Alligators at Gator Park, just outside of Miami, Florida. It's a Florida Must See and should be on everyone's To Do List. The ride was fast, thrilling, smooth and on my bucket list for a long time, but now finally crossed off. We saw wild alligators, birds, fish and a beautiful landscape of the Florida everglades. We did a lot of research to find the best value for an everglades tour, and Gator Park was so well priced for the 45 minute ride we got. It was not touristy at all, there was lots of wildlife and the ride was a ton of fun! www.gatorpark.com Have you done it before? What did you think? If you're going to visit the Everglades, you need to make sure you have one of these: http://amzn.to/2nisidA If you can't visit Florida, bring a piece of the everglades to you with these Everglades spices, with flavours such as Everglades Heat, and Cactus Dust; http://amzn.to/2owjUYh For photos, follow me on Instagram: @DownieLive

Tulum Mexico - NATURE RESERVE & CENOTE CALAVERA - TRAVEL VLOG
 
06:58
Tulum, Mexico is home to the incredible Sian Ka'an Biosphere Nature Reserve (http://www.visitsiankaan.com) that has turquoise blue water fed from the many Cenotes in the area. Our guide through the Nature Reserve was Pastor, and if you're thinking of taking a tour through the Biosphere you must email him ahead of time. It's worth it! [email protected] We started our day off by visiting the Cenote Calavera, near Tulum, Quintana Roo, with small holes to jump through. This cenote is half in a cave and half exposed. But what makes this the best cenote is the fact that it is so close to the town of Tulum, that you can easily bike there, and it is right next to the Grand Cenote, so you can do both on the same trip.

MOTORCYCLE TAKES 6 FERRY RIDES IN EPIC DAY TRIP
 
09:21
This incredible motorcycle road trip had us riding for almost 17 hours (with stops of course), and on 6 ferries in 1 day! We rode our motorcycle from Vancouver, British Columbia to Texada Island, and back, as a day trip to enjoy the last little bit of sun before the end of the riding season. Texada Island, in British Columbia that has an incredible quarry full of crystal clear green water, and it is the perfect swimming hole. This was a long motorcycle trip to remember as we took 3 BC Ferries up the Sunshine Coast to get there from Vancouver, had 2 hours on Texada Island, before we had to head back to make sure we made it in time for the last ferry of the night. It's a fun adventure just getting there, but the water and scenery made it all worth it. If you can't get up to Texada Island to experience it for yourself, I hope this video helps to show you what it's like.

Canada's Highest Restaurant - Eagle Eye at Kicking Horse Mountain Resort
 
10:10
This is Canada's Most Elevated Restaurant, called the Eagle Eye, sitting on top of Kicking Horse Mountain Resort, nestled in the heart of the Rocky Mountains in Golden, BC. Whether you're coming from Vancouver, Calgary, Banff or Jasper National Park, you've still never seen anything like this. Now, unfortunately, it is not open for breakfast or dinner, just lunch. The reason being is because all staff and food must take the gondola up in the morning and down again at the end of the day, which means their allowed work day is shorter than most other restaurants. Let me assure you, it is still worth going to see for the view alone. Oh yeah... I recommend the steak! What do you think of this restaurant? What do you think of the video? You can let me know by leaving a comment below, or on Facebook (DownieLive). For more behind the scenes videos and pictures, follow me on Instagram @DownieLive.

CLIMBING A CONSTRUCTION CRANE - Vancouver views

I'm a Vancouver based YouTuber and adventure blogger, and got to climb to the top of a construction crane. Mega Cranes took me up 200 ft. to the top of their tower crane on a construction site in Burnaby, BC. For me to climb the tower required me to have my Fall Protection Certificate, which I took online prior to climbing the crane. Something else I needed was a bunch of security equipment, including: Hard hat: http://amzn.to/2qeyKn8 Safety vest: http://amzn.to/2poPofw Steel toed boots, harness and my Fall Protection Certificate.

The DMZ (aka the DeMilitarized Zone) lies along the border between North Korea and South Korea.

This tour took me from the Olympics in PyeongChang to the DMZ at the North Korean border and back in a day, and visiting the observation point along with the DMZ Museum really gave me an accurate portrayal of the past and the present.

Is a wedding vlog a thing?
 
10:57
I went away this weekend to the Okanagan of British Columbia for my cousin's amazing wedding. I love going to weddings because it's one of the few events that bring together the whole family from across the country. Even luckier were the incredible houses that we were staying at in Penticton, BC, Canada. As my aunt's a gardener and my uncle is an architect, while the house is in the dry desert part of the Okanagan, it really has more of a tropical feel. It was a destination wedding for Nicole and I as we don't live in the Okanagan, but man, was it hot! It was a summer wedding in the hot okanagan area of BC which gave it a tropical wedding vibe, but we were lucky there weren't too many wildfires going on around us at the time. Everything went according to plan and I'm pretty sure Geoff and Kate got their dream wedding. What did you think of the incredible wedding venue?
