I don't know about you, but May is always like the kick-off to summer for me, and there's no better way to enjoy the summer than getting outdoors. I love being outdoors, mainly because some of my favorite hobbies are outdoor activities.
Wind in your hair, sun on your skin (protected by 30+ SPF, of course), there is truly no better feeling than cruising the water on a boat. Surrounded by both fresh and salt water, we live in the perfect place for boating. Whether it's a johnboat or a yacht, I can't think of a better way to spend my day than cruising the water.
All-Terrain Vehicles (ATV) are all the rage nowadays. With ATV parks popping up all around the country, ATVs have changed from being primarily working equipment to fun outdoor toys. Whether you're just taking a ride around in the evening on a piece of farm or hunting land, or you're splashing through mud holes at an ATV park, you're sure to have a great time!
As y'all know, I love to travel, so the idea of being able to go anywhere and bring my "home" with me is super ideal. I guess that's why so many people have begun buying RVs and transforming busses, vans, and boxcars into homes on wheels. With so many budding RV parks and campgrounds in our area, an RV would be perfect for someone wanting to stay close to home, too, because they'd have the perfect staycation spots.
My grandparents had an RV when I was growing up, and we would take it up onto the Blue Ridge Parkway and camp for a week/weekend. The memories I made camping in the RV with them are some of my favorites.
On one of our camping weekends, we started a campfire to roast hot dogs and s'mores. I was roasting a marshmallow for my s'more, and it accidentally caught on fire. Of course, as a kid, my first reaction was to jerk it out of the fire as quickly as possible. In the process, I managed to toss my fiery marshmallow into the air on top of my grandparent's RV awning. The marshmallow burnt a hole straight through the awning. Needless to say, that was the end of marshmallow roasting and not funny at the time, but now it is a great memory that we all look back and laugh at.
