Hi.

Welcome to my corner of North Georgia. I document my adventures and outdoor activities in hopes of inspiring others to make the most of each day. It is my goal to make hiking accessible and non-intimidating, while promoting responsible enjoyment of the environment. No trail is too short!

Rainy day gear post

I don't plan on writing a lot about hiking or camping gear, however it has been raining here all week and the forecast is dismal for today and tomorrow. Sadly, we won't be able to go hiking at all this weekend, which sucks because today is my birthday. Sooo, next best thing- shopping!

Disclaimer- I don't really like promoting products or advertising. I also believe every person is unique and gear is highly specific to each person's needs. What works for me, may not work for you. That being said, on my birthday excursion to REI, we did find some really cool lanterns. They are inflatable and solar powered. They collapse down and weigh next to nothing. Basically, the concept is like paper party lanterns but these are durable and energy efficient. We put them on a window sill on a very cloudy, rainy day and they still charged up in no time. Lanterns are one of those bulky camping items that really don't fit well anywhere, so we were pretty excited about these!
