#1: Travel to Another Timezone

As I write this, I sit in the airport - in Chicago. Therefore - I have officially traveled to another timezone. Granted, I'm in the airport; and can't even see the Chicago skyline - but I can check off number one on my #thirtybeforethirty list! Snapped this shot walking into the Albany Airport back home...… Continue reading #1: Travel to Another Timezone

California Bound…

Oh y'all. In just a few days... I'm hopping on a flight to the great state of California.  I can not even believe that this is happening (considering I've never left the EST time zone). So what does one do when a trip is coming.  She makes lists in her bullet journal. And she shares… Continue reading California Bound…

Bike Riding By the Hudson

This was an exceptionally warm Columbus Day Weekend, which for me was a little bit of a bummer, I really like fall camping, and it just wasn't the same without sweatshirts & even mittens and hats.  But we made the best of it and had some extra summer fun with a bike ride. October 8,… Continue reading Bike Riding By the Hudson

The Time I Hiked Sunrise Mountain

After the trek up Cascade & Porter and my *obsession* with hiking began, I had big plans to hike the Appalachian Trail with my dog, which for some reason I wanted to name Bubba.  I'm a planner, but my follow through is often non-existent. So instead, I'll settle for a couple of miles on the… Continue reading The Time I Hiked Sunrise Mountain

The Time I Hiked Sleeping Beauty

Here's my problem.  I really like to start hiking challenges.  Fire Towers, 46 High Peaks, 115 North East, Lake George 12ster... the list continues. I've actually yet to finish one of these challenges though.  I really should probably focus on just ONE and figure it out. August 26, 2017 Sleeping Beauty is one of the… Continue reading The Time I Hiked Sleeping Beauty

The Time I Hiked Buck Mountain (the second time)

Repeat hikes are cooler than they seem. You see... Nature is never the same - I think thats my favorite thing about GODS CREATION.  No photo of it can be captured exactly the same way twice. August 13, 2017 Anyways, since my goal is to hike the 12 mountains in Lake George that consist of… Continue reading The Time I Hiked Buck Mountain (the second time)

The Time I Spent a Week at Lewey Lake

It has been well over 10 years since I've actually been on a real 7 day vacation.  And I am PSYCHED (yes I said that like the cheer) about this! July 9, 2017 Today is the maiden voyage of Edith Elantra (well... Edith Elantra Part 1 - for later trips she really transforms). My bike… Continue reading The Time I Spent a Week at Lewey Lake

The Time I Tried the 4-3-2-1 Challenge in One Week…

HA! I planned this out so well, spending hours over the brochure I sent away for from the Indian Lake Chamber of Commerce.  Somehow, I really thought that I was going to complete this challenge in one week.  10 hikes, 6 days ... how hard could that be? Let's just make it back to reality… Continue reading The Time I Tried the 4-3-2-1 Challenge in One Week…

The Time I Bushwhacked Record Hill

This was no easy feat. We chose the hardest, steepest route solely because we could walk to the attempted route from the camp. Except we didn’t know this was the hardest steepest route until our way back down… June 11, 2017 This trek started off simple. A simple stroll down a dirt road with great… Continue reading The Time I Bushwhacked Record Hill

The Time I Kayaked in 150′ Deep Water

I've been to Lake George millions of times. I've been on Lake George 3 times, and the last of those times I kayaked over water that likely measured over 150' deep. Thankfully, at the time I had no clue how deep it was... June 9, 2017 We paddled from camp near Rogers Rock all the… Continue reading The Time I Kayaked in 150′ Deep Water
