Shellbourne Fuels

I’m  pleased to announce John Shane founder of Shellbourne Fuels has chosen Ripple Outdoors to become an authorized distributor for his new product line of fuel enhancers.


Ripple Outdoors can now offer an quaility product that will help your reduce fuel costs and emissions resulting in substantial savings  for the outdoor enthusiasts who operates any type of gas or diesel motor .


John Shane is the founder and creator of Shellbourne Fuel Additive Products. After  graduating from Western University in London, Ontario  Shane worked for oil companies over a 12-year period, of which 6 years was spent in Research & Development at Shell Canada. He was a member of the World Petroleum Conference in Japan, China, and Thailand. In 1989, he applied his skills and knowledge to establishing his own manufacturing plant in Fort Erie, Ontario.

In October 2007 Mariner’s Choice International Inc has appointed John Shane as Senior Technical Advisor for its MC-Marine product line. ply stated Shane’s products decrease FUEL Costs through fuel efficiency and reduced maintenance, as well as significant environmental benefit of reduced emissions of up to 80%.

Shane stated “ It is high time that such products be made available in light of the global ‘carbon laundering’, a term coined by Andrew Simms, a director of New Economics Foundation as he recently discussed the ecological debt that is a worldwide concern (source: Reuters, Oct. 5/07). Our motivation is to put these products into the hands of every single company and every individual that operates any type of engine for the greater good.”

 “These are some of the most progressive fuel products available on the market, and they provide benefits that go beyond just improving engine performance. Cost savings are achieved through fuel efficiency and reduced maintenance, as well as significant environmental benefit of reduced emissions of up to 80% are benefits that cannot be ignored.”

These are benefits that cannot be ignored by anyone who operates machinery or vehicles.

With the high price of fuel and worries of emmisions Shellbourne Fuels has found a Eco-friendly solution.

Late season Fishing & Hunting in Elliot Lake

Last week I had the opportunity to enjoy a hunting and fishing trip to Elliot Lake for late season trout and grouse. Mother Nature however had other plans in mind.

Marty Descoteaux of Elliot Lake Outfitters had invited me up when we met during the Elliot Lake  ATV Fall Run in September. Naturally I wanted to hunt and fish as well as enjoy the terrific scenery from my ATV. Read more

How can first aid in the field help you?

In this week’s podcast I chatted with Simon Ashdown , Director of Public Relations with Tender Corporation. They have awesome field medical kits available to any one traveling in the outdoors. Whether you fish, hunt, hike, ATV, kayak or just play outside you should check these handy kits out.

Once each week starting Saturday October 20th until the end of 2007 I will pick ONE email and send them either an Adventure Medical Field Kit or an  Emergency Bivvy Heat Sheet.

Elliot Lake Fall ATV Run

Imagine coming down the side of a mountain with just the glow of an almost full moon and your ATV headlights lighting the steep trail. Well about 60 avid enthusiastic ATVers did that on September 21st. during the Elliot Lake Fall Fun Run.

The next day about 130 ATVers covered over 100 kilometers of trails. Some more challenging than others. The scenery was awesome as was the weather.

 A shore lunch of fresh walleye prepared by the local experts in fishing kept us coming back until it was all gone. That evening a dance was held with some fine local music and again a great meal with some awesome turkey  and all the fixin’s dinner.

We had early night as we had to leave at 6am the next morning to catch the ferry on Manitoulin Island so I wasn’t sure who won all those terrific door prizes.

The Elliot Lake ATV Club and Tourism Board along with numerous volunteers ensured everyone had a great time. Accommodations at the Fireside Inn , Algo Inn and the  Dunlop Lodge just north of town were almost filled to capacity with this event and other events that weekend.

Elliot Lake Outfitters  were guiding the Fly Fishing Show as it filmed an episode on one of the countless rivers.

Kim Bishop and Ginnete Bedard of the Elliot Lake Tourism Board helped me during my short stay. I will definitely be headed up that soon for some hunting and fishing.

I hope to have the photo’s taken during the run up on a photo page next week after Thanksgiving so check back then.
