An Introduction

We have reached our middle aged status, and have found that physical activity is becoming an increasingly important part of our lives. We started with just short walks around the neighborhood, but quickly began branching out to area parks and got hooked.

Now we walk 3 or 5 miles daily and try to find mini adventures on the weekends. We have 2 kayaks, a Hennessy Hammock and are starting to build up our backpacking gear. We’re looking forward to some future backpacking trips and are goaling to hit the Appalachian Trail in 2019.

I just joined two hiking groups through MeetupThe Corn Desert Hiking and Adventure Group and The Peoria Backpackers Meetup Group. I’m really excited about connecting with other outdoor enthusiasts, and getting to know the area hiking/camping spots.

We hope to write regularly, share photos and start making some youtube videos. I hope this blog becomes a wonderful record of our journey. 🙂
