Hiking Glen Onoko Falls

    Over the last couple of years I’ve become something of a hiking snob.  The hiking here in PA used to be something I would cite as a top reason to visit here, however I guess you tackle a high peak or two, and all of a sudden anything that doesn’t leave your legs

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). This year, however I’ve

2015 New Year’s Resolutions Part 1

So because every single year I do a recap of my New Year’s Resolutions and every year it’s an exercise in disappointment, I’m going to scale it down a bit this year and keep it completely reasonable, keeping in mind my actual budget (not what I wish my budget would be), the amount of time

2014 Recap & New Year’s Resolutions Checklist

Every new year I make a list of things I’d like to accomplish for the new years (obviously these are all travel/leisure/blogging based-even though I am striving to eat more fruits and vegetables and vowing to curtail buying rounds of drinks for semi-acquaintances you won’t be reading about them here). Every year before posting these

10 Places To VIsit in Pennsylvania that Aren’t Pittsburgh and Philadelphia

The other day, while perusing a whole lot of travel blogs and websites to come up with post ideas, I noticed (or I should say, re-noticed) that when Pennsylvania in concerned, the large majority of writers break up the state into three parts: Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, and “The Amish.”  Now, I’m not hear to disagree with

Celebrate Pennsyvlania Wine Month

Part of this whole being unemployed thing (which  I have to consistently remind myself is by choice) that I quite like is that I could start my day out with a workout, effectively getting it out-of-the-way and making me feel wide awake from the get-go. This was always something I wanted to do in theory

100 Things to do in Pennsyvlania (Part II)

Last year around this time I decided to “celebrate” my 100th blog post by coming up with a list of “100 Things to do in Pennsylvania.” It ended up being much easier than I anticipated, which is good considering that one of my main purposes of my site is to celebrate and explore all the things do within our own

Weekend Trip Idea: PA Kayak School

Two summers ago I went through a bit of a kayaking spree. I frequently kayaked around the lake at Marsh Creek on hot summer days (perfect remedy for those of you adjusting to life post-your parent’s pool) and even went on 3 day-2 night kayaking trip down the Delaware River with my buddy Eric. While I’d

Getting Loved up at Lake Wallenpaupack

It always cracks me up that the Poconos used  to be (still are?) a major honeymoon destination. This is no offense to the Poconos, which in its defense is a super gorgeous area, it’s just that romance is not something I typically associate with NEPA. I associate it with pierogies and polka music and Parade Day,

Where to Cross Country Ski in Pennsylvania

It’s pretty much my unofficial goal to become a cross-country ski bum. I’ve outlined before why one of my favorite outdoor activities and am stoked that this winter has been generous with the snow thus far. I think I skied five times last year and two of those required traveling up to Lake Placid for a weekend. I was
