For this special Thanksgiving edition, we took the show on the road. We joined the Tar Heel State Hangers for their 3rd annual Hangsgiving hammock camping event. With nearly 40 people in attendance representing 8 states, Mike Lyle and his group generated $1600 that was donated to the NC State Park system. #backpacklife#textlesslivemore#hikemorebitches#ncstateparks#hammocklife https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/inside-the-outside/id1435936077?mt=2

I have really been struggling with the fact that it is now dark, cold, and rainy when I get home from work. The time change is threatening to throw off my walking and running schedule and I’m not okay with it! This week I tried to rearrange my schedule so that I am running with the sunrise instead of the sunset, but getting up an hour earlier has left me a little irritable (sorry everyone!)! Changing my schedule always takes some getting used to, next week will be better!! I have also been dressing for the weather with thick socks, jackets, gloves, and hats! I found this awesome blog post with more tricks to keep up your #MoveMore schedule during the winter months, I linked it in my bio. The post is by the Eat Smart, Move More blog and it’s really good, take a look at some of their other blog posts!
Side note: I got these super think Farm to Feet socks for FREE by participating in the NC 100 Mile Challenge!! Thanks @nc100milechallenge and @ncstateparks for the cool prizes!!
Don’t forget to come shop local in #downtownraleigh tonight! @runologie couldn’t have said it better “ when you spend a Dollar in an independent local retailer, The whole Dollar stays in your community “ . Ditch the big box and local wannabes, come support people who will support you!
Hooked on NC State Parks? Come see our float entry in the Raleigh Christmas Parade Saturday! Our in-house band, "Hook, Line, and Sinker" will be performing! Special thanks to our sponsors, Friends of NC State Parks! #ncstateparks#christmasparade#holidays
Why we travel? For these moments. Sure, we travel to discover, learn and be inspired, but really it’s this...creating memories together, bonding and shared experiences. Our family didn’t start out together, so from the beginning it’s been an intentional and focused part of our lives. Travel doesn’t have to take you across the world, or cost a lot of money. Travel can be 5 miles away and absolutely free, but the memories are priceless.
When you love your work, you find ways to support the cause, like my State Parks License Plate. With each plate ordered $20 is returned to Friends of State Parks, Inc. to help support State Parks across North Carolina.

Good morning, beautiful! 🔹
The morning glow over the Blue Ridge Parkway is breathtaking. From amber in the sky, to the fades of purples and pinks, yellows and blues to finally having the amber glow cast on the fall trees around us within 10 minutes. My favorite moment was when the mountains turned purple with the fog resting in the valleys and the trees began to transition from darkness to amber.
Time for our Annual Coat Drive! This week, donate a gently used coat at the shop and take 15% off one new coat! All donations go straight to @interactofwake to benefit our neighbors in need this winter
