I love going somewhere and being genuinely impressed, which was my experience this weekend when my brother, sister and I took a sibling hiking trip to Ohiopyle State Park, in southwestern PA. Ohiopyle is both the name of a town and a 19,000 acre Pennsylvania State Park known for its waterfalls, biking trails and what’s
For the past half year or so I’ve been questioning my career, my trajectory, and many of my major life choices. I’m 27, not completely sure what I want to do with life, where I want to end up, and wonder if I should ease up with the all night drinking and traveling and carrying on when
I usually tent it whenever I got to Sea Isle City. My friends rent a tiny beach house and I’m normally not the only guest. Pitching a tent in their backyard ensures that I’m not fighting for a couch, and really what’s better than sleeping under the stars (separated by some netting) at the shore?
I’ve never been to the Pennsylvania grand canyon and to be honest, I often forget it exists until someone mentions it to me. Luckily for all of you, one of my students was raving about camping and hiking up there for the weekend. The PA Grand Canyon, also known as the Pine Creek Gorge, for

No offense to year-long residents of Darlington Maryland, but your town has an innate creepiness about it that proves the perfect place to hold a zombie mud run. It didn’t take that much imagination for me to picture Darlington as the epicenter of a zombie apocolypes. We drove into Darlington early Saturday morning for the Run
Story of my life: “I’m going to stay in and have a low-key weekend so I can give my body and bank account a rest” gets tossed aside because of peer pressure. I don’t know what age this pressure stops at, but I hope it’s soon. I have the convictions of a thirteen year old
I’ve been unsuccessfully trying to visit Maine now for the better part of two years. My three main draws being: the scenery, adventure sports, and most importantly the chance the devour several fresh Maine lobster rolls. One problem with Maine is that it is a pretty sizable drive from Pennsylvania, yet close enough that flying
I’m going for a three day kayaking trip starting Thursday. Real kayaking. We’ll actually be paddling, and camping for three nights. I’m used to camping. I go camping several times a year and just went this past weekend. The difference is that everytime I go camping, I’m able to pack my entire car. For this weekend everything
