Partially to drive my sister crazy since we were finally catching up with her total cache find number... And also because I realized that you get a sweet badge on their website for every single … Continue reading Adventures in Geocaching – The Trip South
After two weeks hanging in Maine with my family, it was finally time to head home to North Carolina. This is quite literally the WORST view in the world and I cried for over an hour after we left my sisters house that day.... That is all. On to the next adventure........
I am still desperately trying to catch up on all of the blogs that I missed while on vacation. Upon our arrival back home, I have gone back to work and college has started back full time too so I have a very limited amount of time left for blogging lately.

Moving right along and trying to get all caught up on the blogs I missed while on vacation....... No summer vacation would be complete without a small town fireworks display and parade.

This giant roadside attraction was added to the town after our last visit home so I had never seen it in person although I have heard (oh how I have HEARD) about it from the locals. Many … Continue reading The Lincoln Loon..
At the last minute my family decided on a different location altogether from the one previously mentioned in my blog. We stayed in a camp that used to host our annual family reunion back in the day which is located on Madagascal Pond (more like a lake in my opinion) in Penobscot County, Maine. To … Continue reading Madagascal Pond, Maine
