Waterfall Rappelling at the Delaware Water Gap

I’ve figured out the best strategy for gift buying: purchase a gift card for an activity that you’d like to do, and then gift it to whomever is entitled gifts for whatever occasion, promising them that you’ll be there at their side when they want to redeem it. Foolproof. This is both a short look

Where to Snowshoe in PA

  If you’ve ever even just glanced at my blog, it’s no secret that one of my favorite hobbies to push is cross-country skiing, mainly because it’s so accessible, it’s relatively cheap (once you buy skis), and Pennsylvania is a great place to explore via ski (when it snows that is).

With the impending official arrival of summer, I wanted to write a post about all the great kayaking and camping trips Pennsylvania has to offer.  I went to reference the post I “wrote” about my trip kayaking down the Delaware last year and found that the post, while started, had never came to fruition.  Looking back, it makes sense, as

Summer Plans

I feel like it’s officially summer now.  Even though I got out of school on June 8th, last week was spent grading papers, cleaning out my classroom, and then traveling first to good old NEPA for some errands/appointments.  This weekend was spent in Philly for my sister’s graduation from Drexel.  Not a ton to report
