#4 – Do a Weekend Road Trip (#ThirtyBeforeThirty)

I wasted no time when it came to starting this challenge. Day 1 and I was off to complete #4 of the #ThirtyBeforeThirty challenge - Do a weekend road trip. September 22-24, 2017 September 22, 2017 I arrived at Stokes Sate Forest just around 5 P.M.  The main office was closed, which caused a little… Continue reading #4 – Do a Weekend Road Trip (#ThirtyBeforeThirty)

#17 – Watch the Sun Set or Rise on a Mountain (#ThirtyBeforeThirty)

Oh people, it's so fun to cross off a challenge item! After trekking up Sunrise Mountain in New Jersey and realizing that you can drive to the almost top with only 0.10 miles to go, we were all about driving back up near sunset to watch that golden hour magic. #17 - Watch the sun set… Continue reading #17 – Watch the Sun Set or Rise on a Mountain (#ThirtyBeforeThirty)

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

#ThirtyBeforeThirty

When I turned 15, I remember going around school complaining that I was halfway to 30.  Now at 29, I'm going to pretend that on September 22, 2018 when the big 3-0 hits that being half-way to 60 is a cool thing.  My 2 year old niece told me yesterday that 30 isn't old (of… Continue reading #ThirtyBeforeThirty

Look Inside My Bullet Journal (#6)

Another journal complete! On to number SEVEN! I tried to really embrace my own handwriting in this journal - and all that handlettering can entail. But at the same time, trying not to become obsessed with how it looks (or doesn't look) like everyone else's - cause its mine! Here's some of my favorite spreads:… Continue reading Look Inside My Bullet Journal (#6)

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
