Over breakfast Jessica reached out to a friend and fellow weaver in Black Mountain setting us up with a safe place to pitch our tent. During the never fun process of packing the panniers and loading the bikes up Jessica offered to drive us into Asheville, sparing us the ride through the suburban sprawl. Gracious for […]
We left Mount Desert Island to explore the Maine coastline; crossing the bridge back to the mainland you get barraged with lobster, lobster, and more lobster. We knew these were generally going to be the same as the lobster we had before so we drove past dozens of lobster pounds. We finally stopped at a place not even listed on […]
We were a little overwhelmed when we left our hotel to explore Montreal. We were in a location that we later discovered was very accessible via public transit. After approximately a mile walk we arrived at what we thought was a transit stop; we discovered almost exactly as it started pouring rain we walked to a […]
Rested from our hike and day 1 of our roadtrip we set out to explore Burlington and the shores of Lake Champlain; the long waterway that separates Vermont and New York. We went for a walk in Oakledge Park, during our walk we found a tree house that conjures up memories of how it must have felt […]

We decided to do a little hike near my parents house on the Appalachian Trail. We had gorgeous views at the top of the graffiti marked rocks. After the hike we went wine tasting with mom, who tried to take us across the Susquehanna River on a closed ferry.
We decided to take a trip to the Finger Lakes, New Yorks famed wine country. The drive up was long and melodic as we drove through hundreds of miles of rolling hills, farm land, and vast countryside. It was a drizzly day as strong storms had moved through New York; a glimpse into the 2012 Hurricane season. […]
