The Publisher of YaGotta.ca its predecessor the Western Canadian Online Outdoors News, Bob Kenyon, is an information researcher, writer, and marketer in the Edmonton area. Growing up in Alberta in the 1950's and 60's, Bob has had a long term relationship with the outdoors. This was done through Scouting and family camping. Bob's father, the late Stewart S. Kenyon, built a very early tent-trailer (circa 1955) using the front axle of a 1948 Plymouth, welded pipe for a frame, plywood body, and threaded pipe, as the frame for the tent. It's believed that he saw the original design in a "Popular Mechanics" magazine. The family used the unit to travel all over Alberta, including early trips on the "Coal Branch" roads between Hinton and the Crowsnest Pass, via Nordegg and Canmore. Trips into all the mountain parks were frequent and the unit saw many weekends at Gull Lake. The unit went out of the province many times to British Columbia, Saskatchewan, Manitoba and Ontario. It was in the United States, going as far south as California. You can follow Bob and Ya'Gotta, on Twitter @yagottabob
