4 years ago when my younger daughter left for college, I realized that I could either sit around and mourn the absence of my children at home, or I could make some changes. Since then, I met and started going on adventures with my boyfriend, Shannon. Although he has much more experience, and has spent much more time hiking, camping, and canoeing, I’d had enough experience with hiking, camping, and canoeing in my former years to be comfortable. Also, I love it, which people are surprised to hear given some of the places we choose to go. We met a few months before the official start of the Covid-19 pandemic in 2020, and almost instantly started taking trips. We’ve been on some amazing adventures, and I love to write about them and share the experiences. I hope that you’ll enjoy hearing about our adventures, and that you’ll be inspired to find some too!
