Wannabe on the Trail: Internal Arguments

The following is a brief conversation between myself and my personal Gollum. ~6:30 a.m. Alarm blares and wakefulness intrudes.~ Gollum: *Hiss* I want to go back to bed. It’s cold. I want to snuggle into my couch under a blanket. I want more Oreo Balls. Me: *Sigh* I have to adult. I really don’t wantContinue reading “Wannabe on the Trail: Internal Arguments”

Snow Squall… WTF?

We had a snowsquall on December 15– what the heck is a snowsquall you ask? A cold, miserable whiteout with a time limit. Howling wind, blowing snow, and a massive temperature change. It went from almost 48 degrees down to 25 degrees. While it was a “cool” experience it made me long for warmer days.Continue reading “Snow Squall… WTF?”

Flashback Friday: Smokey Mountains National Park June 2017

Wannabe on the Trail: Influencing

I related the most with Chris but I don’t think I deserve to be famous in the sameContinue reading “Wannabe on the Trail: Influencing”

Return to Girl, Take a Hike

I really want to go hike on a beach somewhere. It’s been an insane week already. It’s also starting to get cold. I don’t like it. Well, I do but it’s a weird toxic love hate relationship with cold weather. The snow makes it so pretty. Luckily, we only had a little light dusting ofContinue reading “Return to Girl, Take a Hike”

Wannabe on the Trail: Musings on Timeshares

*** I haven’t got any cool photos for this post so I made memes… So… on that last trip I took, that one to Branson, we went because of a timeshare offer. Yeah, yeah, I know… We were walking through a popular outdoor store and Wade never learned to avoid sales desk people and interacted.Continue reading “Wannabe on the Trail: Musings on Timeshares”

Write—A—Ween

Hey folks! Fall is starting to wither a little bit here—we’re already getting calls for snow but right now it’s misty and dreary. Perfect Halloween weather—or perfect Halloween writing weather. So, I’m starting my own writing prompt for the two weeks leading up to Halloween. #writeaween
