Ever wondered if you have the suff it takes to be a weekend warrior?  Living in a state of constant motion isn’t easy, but with focus and determination is attainable.  Life has many priorities that keep us preoccupied- family, friends, pets, work, school, homeownership, and other pursuits, but outdoor adventure is always near the top.  Willow is a single mom (Shoutout to Grandma and Grandpa […]

Big Agnes Copper Spur HV UL2 Tent

If you’ve read some of my past posts, you know I’m a gear fiend.  Researching, reading reviews and looking for the best deals is probably just as much fun as using it…well actually using it is the most fun, but man do I love gear shopping.  When it came to buying my first tent, an important decision, my skills came in quite handy.

Don’t Let Your Maine Summer Slip Away

I am reflecting on how to take advantage of the rest of the Maine Summer. Angus King recently said “Summer lingers, but cool mornings are a portent. Remember, however, September is our secret”.  If you are not following Senator King on Instagram, you should consider doing so- He rides his Harley around the state and showcases everything that our great state has to offer and […]

31 Nights Out Challenge – Camping in Maine

In 2015 I saw a post that a friend had shared about a challenge to spend 31 nights outside between Memorial Day and Labor Day (without quitting your job).  I love a good challenge and we already had a handful of trips planned already so I figured why not?!  The summer turned into a constant effort of packing, unpacking and packing again and I loved […]

Beech Hill Preserve

Scarborough Beach State Park

Hi all, it’s Willow….. Beach season is here, and we are beach bums at the core.  Scarborough Beach State Park is by far one of the best beaches in Maine.  This beach is one of Maine’s great surf beaches and offers a more rustic feel than other beaches in Southern Maine (Read: Outhouses) and has a very chill vibe.  I have enjoyed coming to this […]
