The great outdoors
For all those outdoor and nature nuts, you know what I’m talking about. Fishing and hunting are the name of the game. The thrill when your fishing pole gets a hit by something big and the prize and adrenaline rush when you’re bringing it in. There’s nothing like it! Bring it on!
I never thought I would be on the road, riding a bike. Now it’s in my blood. Where else can you hit the road, be competitive, and get a good workout? OK, I’m sure some of you have other things, but cycling is a workout like no other. You want to burn you legs up, hit the hill out on Rosedale off Mount Vernon Road.
Cinch up your laces and hit the road. Just like cycling, running gets in your blood and it doesn’t leave. Sure it hurts at the beginning, but just like all things, once you get used to it, you’ll want more. I take on the country gravel roads where I don’t have to worry so much about the busy traffic or idiots traveling Mach 1. As long as you’re not scared of the cow crap, or other animals in the country, I’d recommend you get out and try it. Who knows, you might like it.
How many of you have families? Those that do know what I’m talking about when I say they are part of my fave five. The fun times outside with my boys, whether it’s playing catch or giving them an underdog on the swing. It’s all part of this thing we call life, and I wouldn’t give it up for the world. I’m a family guy. What can I say.
If you’re reading this part last, you probably have me figured out. I’m a guy that loves to be outside, in the country and with the fam. It’s the best combination. Country living isn’t always about the idea of living in the country; rather it’s about neighbors who will help you out no matter what. It’s about the freedom to go outside and race a go-cart around the yard and make all the noise you want. You get my point.
