This is the old version of my "What's New" page. It shows past site updates.

November 7, 2006Posted a trip log and info page for the trip I took to the Nine Mile Lake Area. It's got much better mapping than before (using Google Earth/Maps) and is an example of what I would like all my trip maps to look like (actually I'm working on more than this too, but no guarantees!)
October 18, 2006Posted a trip log and info page for the Black River trip that Mark and I did at the end of September. I also posted some photos from the trip Randy, Mike and I took to the Frost Centre in the spring. Finally, added Bike Log stats for August and September.
October 12, 2006Updated the About Me page a bit, and put in the first implementation of my new photo gallery. Let me know what you think. I hope to be rolling it out to all my photo albums.
August 18, 2006FINALLY posted the journal for the trip that Matt, Mike and I did on the Mattawa River back in May. Also updated my bikelog with July stats--my highest mileage month ever!

March 22, 2006Updated my Bike Log with stats for Feb and March (on my new bike!!)

July 27, 2005A trip log for my latest trip to Frontenac Park is now posted!
July 17, 2005Added a new page to my site - the trip planning Resources page. Here you can find places to look for information when you are researching a trip.
July 14, 2005Added some information about paddling the Nith River from Canning to Paris and the Tay River in Perth. I also updated my About Me page and my Vintage Moulden Road Bike page.

May 1, 2005Updated my Bike Log for all April rides.
April 22, 2005Updated my Bike Log for all rides I've done in 2005. So far, nothing special.. but 350.25 km is not bad for April.
February 9, 2005Updated my resume (.pdf file). I'm now actively looking for full-time job, as I graduate in April.
February 4, 2005Finally got around to updating my Vintage Moulden Road Bike page with some information I've received from helpful readers. Thanks all! Also, just a quick note to tell you that my MapServer application is currently down, and will not likely be fixed for some time, as I'm not sure what's wrong with it, and I don't have much time right now to find out!
January 20, 2004Updated my Bike Log with December and final 2004 stats. I logged over 3,200 kms (2000 miles) this year! Also updated the About Me page for the first time in much too long. Also added a page about a skiing area near Woodstock - Vansittart Woods.
November 30, 2004Updated my Bike Log with November stats.
October 31, 2004Updated my Bike Log with October stats. I've also purchased a set of rollers, so I can continue to train if the weather is bad...which it inevitably will be...

September 28, 2004Updated the MNR Canoe Routes page to reflect a few more brochures that I have obtained! Also updated the Site Map and Playlist pages.

August 6, 2004I've added four trips to my pages. Check out my trips to the Frost Centre, the Chiniguchi Loop, the Oxbow on the Grand River and the Thames River. Good times!
July 1, 2004Happy Canada Day! Updated my bikelog with June stats.
June 6, 2004Updated the About Me page so that it's up-to-date again, and updated my Resume as well.
May 31, 2004Updated my Bike Log page with final May stats.
May 20, 2004I've modified my Bike Log page. It no longer tracks daily rides (too much effort :) so now contains only monthly summaries of my rides. Rest assured that I'm still riding most every day (more than ever in fact!)
April 1, 2004Version 2 of my MapServer Application is now online. It's better than v1, but still has some issues. Check it out anyway! It now has tons of data, thanks to the CTIS WMS, which lets me link up with NTS topo map data. So, it's pretty detailed!
February 15, 2003My first customized MapServer Application is now up and running here! It is a work in progress, so don't expect too much just yet.
February 14, 2003IT'S ALIVE! Mapserver is now live on Darren's Outdoor Page!!! (yes, ok, I'm just a bit excited) Right now all you can see is the demo version, but since that works, I know my own data will work once I get it all together. So.. wait for it! In the mean time, check out the demo! This demo will not be a permanent part of my site, but once I get my own application running, that will be integrated into the rest of the site.
February 12, 2004Matt and I went skiing last weekend in Gatineau Park, and I have posted some information and pictures about our trip. It was great!
January 25, 2004Updated the About Me page a bit.
January 18, 2004Well, I'm all settled in here in Ottawa now, and have done a couple updates. I fixed some broken links on the Canoe Trip Menu Planning Page. Hopefully I'll have some skiing info. from Gatineau Park shortly, as I hope to get there next weekend!
January 1, 2004HAPPY NEW YEAR! I'm heading up to Ottawa tomorrow, and won't have an internet connection for a while, until I get one set up there. Therefore, there will be no updates until I get everythign up and running again. So, until then...
December 16, 2003Added my route description and information page for the latest trip that I did to Killarney Provincial Park.
November 7, 2003Updated the About Me page, and also have been updating my Bike Log after every ride.
October 22, 2003Posted pictures from our Thanksgiving trip to Killarney. The trip description/journal, etc. will be posted shortly.
October 3, 2003Wow.. I finally found some time to update my page a bit. I'm really busy at school this term! Updated my resume and also added SiteMeter to all photo album pages.
August 20, 2003Added a page with information about the custom Jim Moulden vintage road bike that I'm now the proud owner of. I spec. out all of the components, and show some pictures, in the hopes that someone can provide me with some more information on the bike
August 5, 2003Posted some info about the short paddle that Matt and I did on the long weekend, from Hawkesville to St. Jacobs Dam on the Conestogo River.
July 19, 2003Added another picture to my GRASS_GIS album. This time, I was playing around with the watershed function. Cool stuff.
July 17, 2003Updated my playlist, since I realized it didn't have any of my Tragically Hip songs listed. Also, I've been updating my bikelog after every ride (every weekday at least) so keep checking it out!
July 6, 2003Posted pictures from the Mattawa River trip that Matt and I did!
July 5, 2003Finally transferred my page from www.oxford.net to my new server at http://dmcope.freeshell.org. Please update any bookmarks and/or links that you may have that point to the old site. I will attempt to keep that site intact, with links pointing to the new site, but I will no longer update it. Thanks!
June 30, 2003Added pictures of the Big Otter Creek canoe trip that Mike and I did recently. Also, moved my entire Photo Album to my new hosting site, at dmcope.freeshell.org! My entire page is currently mirrored there, and that will soon be the new home of all of my pages. There are currently some links on the new pages which need to be updated, but other than that, it's fully operational. More by the end of the week.
June 23, 2003Just got back from the Mattawa River and posted a trip log and journal. Photos will be coming soon too!
June 10, 2003Added another excellent link to my links page.
June 1, 2003Posted my Bike Log online. Here you can follow my everyday biking (both commuting and recreational rides). I really created this page for my own benefit, but thought that posting it online for all to see would increase my motivation. Since I will hopefully be updating this page after every ride, I won't be adding an entry to this "What's New?" page every time. So..this entry is just to let you know that the page exists, and that you can check it daily if you want to follow along with me.
May 21, 2003Updated my Academic Page a bit, and posted some new pictures in my photo album - this time they're screenshots of a GRASS tutorial that I'm doing.
May 20, 2003Added some pictures to the photo album. This time there's some pics from our Thanksgiving 2001 trip to the Poker Lake Route. I know that was a while ago, but I decided to put the pics up anyway! I also added some descriptive captions to the canoe repair album, and put the pictures in a meaningful order. Thanks to Matt for writing up these captions for me!
May 19, 2003Added a page about my latest trip - a day trip down Big Otter Creek that Mike and I did today.
May 11, 2003Updated the about me page, and added a link to the maps page. You can now view the location of crown land in Ontario online, on the Crown Land Use Atlas. Great!
May 3, 2003Added a Photo Album section to my site. So far it doesn't match my site layout, and it's hosted on my "250free.com" site, so it's not too great. I'm working on making it consistent with my other pages, and hopefully getting it off of 250free to avoid the pop-up ads (sorry about them for now!). Right now the Photo Album only contains some pictures of my friend Matt's Canoe Repair and Restoration, and some pictures of the Nith River Trip that Mike and I did on April 25th.
May 3, 2003Posted a route description for the Conestogo River trip that Matt, Hil and I did on April the 26th. It was a great trip! Read all about it!

February 26, 2003Added a link to the Schneider's Farm mailing list to the Schneider's Farm map page to hopefully get more members!
February 6, 2003Started a mailing list/egroup to discuss snow and trail conditions at the Schneider's Farm. Join if you go there! If you post a message every time you go, we'll soon have an up-to-date conditions report!
February 5, 2003Updated the about me page a bit.
January 27, 2003Added a 3D map of Schneider's Farm... it's more for fun than anything, as it's not really meant to be accurate. Maybe in the future it'll be better.. who knows?
January 19, 2003Due to space limitations on my server, some of my images and .pdf files are now stored on a remote server (Special thanks to www.250free.com!). This means that some of the pictures/.pdf files may load a bit slower, and may actually be down sometimes, as there is a transfer limit on 250free. So.. if you experience problems with images not showing up, check first to see if it's a local image or one stored on 250free. If it's on 250free, you will just have to wait and try again later! You can let me know though, so I get a sense of how reliable their server is! Hopefully this works out...
January 19, 2003Posted a bit of information about skiing at Schneider's Farm.
January 14, 2003Posted my latest work-term report in the Academic section, titled Determining Correlation Between Baseflow and Surficial Geology Using GIS

October 30, 2002Posted my newest brilliant idea. I'm interested in obtaining canoe route brochures which were published by the MNR. I have compiled a list of all such brochures, which indicates which I have and which I need. It is my goal to have as many of these brochures as possible, so that this information is not lost forever.
October 30, 2002Added the journal for the last day of my latest trip (Matt just finished typing it up).
October 15, 2002Posted some info on my latest trip to the Serpentine Lake Loop. Includes route description, journal and links.

Sept.16, 2001After recieving some feedback on my "Europe Bound Rip-Off" article, I've decided to post a different view-point from one of the visitors to my site. Check out the newly revised version, and think about what's said there.
Sept.6, 2001I'm back from my summer job in Bancroft, and getting ready to go back to school. Probably won't be many site updates for a bit, but I do hope to do some more trips with the Outers Club this fall!
June 17, 2001Well folks, I'm gone up to Bancroft to work for the summer starting tomorrow (the 18th). I'll be gone until the end of August. I likely won't have internet access, so don't expect replies to your email (at least not for a long time!). I guess the site won't be updated for a while...since I start school again soon after I get back from work. Ah well!
June 14, 2001Added a second page to the Product Reviews section. The first review on the second page is for the Cascade Designs (Thermarest) Staytek Lite Long mattress. Take a look to see what I think!

Thanks to Picosearch for this great search engine!
May 7, 2001Added a new section to my site, called The Way I See It. This is where I post articles I have written about the way I see things. It's like an opinion or editorial page. I also posted my first article in the section, called Prices vs. Quality. It's a comment on the price of outdoor gear.

Instead of the links being in a column along the left side of the screen, I have switched to a "tabs" format, where all the info is broken into four sections.

Feb.20, 1999The URL for Darren's Outdoor Page should be:

Please change all links and bookmarks to the above URL.
Feb. 20, 1999Updated the Manufacturers of Outdoor Gear page to include many more companies.
Feb. 3, 1999Added a new page! The Check List page is the exact same as my "Canoe Trip Equipment List", but it is designed to print off. It has no descriptions or links like the Equipment List page does, and it has check-boxes to help you pack!
Feb. 3, 1999Updated my Equipment List page to reflect the new Canadian Coast Guard regulations. It is now necessary to have a 15m floating rope and a floating flashlight in all canoes.
Feb. 2, 1999Did a major overhaul of the Manufacturers and Retailers page. I decided to make it only Manufacturers, so renamed the page appropriately, Manufacturers of Outdoor Gear.

Feb. 2, 1999Removed my "Choosing a Canoe" page. I felt that I was never going to get it done, and I really don't think that I know enough about the subject to write a page on it.
Feb. 2, 1999Did a major fomat change (yes again) to all pages. I removed many of the useless litle pictues and hopefully made the site easier to navigate too. I used Server Side Includes so that future changes to the menues would be easier. Hope you like it!

Enid the Moose!
Sep. 30, 1998Simplified the links page, by removing all old links except for the ones that i feel are excellent, and putting them all back onto one smaller page. This makes it easier for me to keep track of broken links, and becuase there are already enough pages out there with huge lists of links!
Sep. 30, 1998The NEW look! I removed the annoying frames and (hopefully) streamlined the page to make it better! Mail me! to tell me what you think of the changes!
