Toronto For First Timers!?

We're NYCers going on a 2 week trip to Toronto on the 26th. We've never been! What are the new exciting sites? The old established stuff? (Again, we've never been!) We like history, werid engineering dork stuff, movie stuff, dive bars, gayness, unusual stores and secondhand vintage menswear. We don't drive, but we'd like a nice trip out of town by train or even bus. Exciting cuisine a must overall. [more inside]

Alternatives to the Appalachian Trail

I want to go on a long hike before my wife and I buy a house or have kids, sort of a 'final big adventure by myself' before completely settling down. The Appalachian Trail is tempting but 5 months is a long time to be away from home (not to mention it'll be expensive). Please suggest some alternative long hikes. Maybe in the 1-2 month length range. Bonus points if your suggestion is in Canada. [more inside]

Which (Canadian, hiking) GPS? Criteria inside

Hi there, I'm looking for advice on the right GPS unit. This would be my first purchase but I have used a few in the past and I know what didn't work for me and what did. I've read a bit but to be honest I still don't have a clue about manufacturers, specific models, chipsets and everything else. I was wondering if y'all could help? [more inside]
