I Feel Home

I try to remain as apolitical as possible here on my blog, but it was hard to remain apolitical during the election, and becoming increasingly hard now, just in life, where it seems every choice or conversation can trigger some sort of debate, or side drawn. I in no way, shape, or form supported, or

The Best Things I Ate in 2016

I’ve noted a few times this year how my travel style/weekend activities has changed a bit as I get older.  I used to not care about where I stayed, and while I still very often just use a room as a place to crash, I do enjoy more and more finding interesting places to stay.

Underrated Weekend Places and Things

You know what’s a great word to describe our wonderful Keystone State? Underrated.  You never see Pennsylvania topping any “best of” or “must see” lists, but it’s never at the bottom either. We have great regional food, great food scenes, amazing beer, phenomenal hiking, a great central locale, and two of the most livable (ie:

Susquehanna Brewing Company Tour

One of my favorite things to write about on here, is visiting different breweries around Pennsylvania and sampling what they have to offer (so maybe I like the sampling just a little bit better then the visiting), and there’s no shortage of breweries in PA to visit. In fact, there’s no shortage of breweries to

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

Winter Fun Trip Idea 2015: Seven Springs Resort

So, it’s officially time to start booking and planning those ski outings for winter 2015, or as I like to call them “Winter Fun Trips.” See, I don’t downhill ski, but I love the idea of a “ski trip.” I like winters, I like outdoor activities, and I like the look and feel of ski

Athletics and Booze

If you’ve ever read this blog before, you probably know that my perfect weekend includes a combination of some sort of quasi-athletic activity accompanied by some post activity pub crawling. You know what’s even better? When the two activities are combined, which is why I think I was drawn to the idea of pedicycles from

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

NEPA Party Bike

Three years ago my brother introduced me to Jerrod Nieman’s “One More Drinking Song” and I quickly became obsessed. A few weeks later I saw the music video and became newly obsessed with the bike-like contraption he’s singing on around downtown Nashville. I found that it’s a vehicle known as a pedicycle (also known/marketed as pedal

Fall Weekend Trip Idea: ATV’s and Craft Brews in NEPA

I was doing a little bit of a mini northern tier tour last weekend with my dad. He got a mid-life crisis BMW convertible so we took it up north to the Orson Inn and Lakewood Lodge where we got some wings. We were on the same barhopping schedule as a group of guys ATVing
