About

I love adventures and will do pretty much anything if it’ll make for a good story. And in my 26 years, I’ve had some pretty amazing adventures: swimming with sharks in Fiji, driving from Boston to Dothan, AL in a 15-passenger van for a Habitat for Humanity project, paragliding off a mountain in Slovenia and sailing in the Great Barrier Reef are a few of my favorites.

Now that I’m working in the real world, I don’t always have the time (or budget) for grand adventures. But I put a lot of effort into finding things to do in my area, or a day trip away, that are fun-filled and wallet-friendly. My motto is: the more random and unusual the adventure, the better.

For now, this blog will mostly cover my adventures in North Carolina, but I’ll mix it up whenever I get the chance to travel. I have lots of stories to share, and I hope you enjoy!

Here are photos from some of my favorite adventures:

  6. Kathy,

    I remember that photo from our adventure Boston –> Dothan or BUST. You are a terrific writer and an even better person. Need a New England adventures contributer? I might just know one…
