Nature & The Outdoors

I've always had an interest in local history, and growing up working on a very old (300+yrs), and very historic New England farm just fueled that interest. I would talk to the old-timers all the time about what the farm looked like 300 years ago, and heard some pretty amazing stories.

After looking at the traffic reports, and realizing the work needed to bring it up to date, I’ve decided to pull Hiking New England (.com) down indefinitely.

Every so often I go through these fairly stubborn insomnia phases. Well seeing that I was up at 3am again today (with no chance of falling back asleep), I got a little bored moping around the house while everyone was asleep. To that end, I packed up and headed out for a drive before work.

I went Kayaking today with a friend of mine. We didn’t have a ton of time, so we decided on someplace close to both of us – The Powow River. I’ve lived in Amesbury for a few years, and lived in the area (Newburyport) for something like 25 years.

This past weekend my wife, daughter and I met up with some friends (Analise, Derrek and Tristan) and decided to do something “family’ish” for the afternoon. I’ve been so busy with band stuff, home projects and freelance work lately, that a day out of the house sounded great.

I took last Friday off with the intent of going camping in Pawtuckaway. Well, let’s just say it didn’t go quite as I planned.

Missed band practice last night. At like five o’clock I got dumped on with work that needed to be done. I couldn’t really bail on work, so I bailed on practice at the last moment. Yeah, I’m dick… I get it.

Twice this week I have been walking in Maudslay after work, and twice I’ve seen Coyote while on the trail. The first time was at a bit of a distance, but tonight I came head-to-head with two animals not 50 feet away.

Someone recently asked me “What’s the most terrifying thing has happened while hiking?” I thought about that for a bit and there is one instance that clearly stands out as the most frightening, but I was camping, not hiking. I thought I’d share.

I have been a fairly avid hiker/ outdoorsy person for years. Unfortunately, living where I do (New England Seacoast) presents challenges when it comes to getting out on the trail with any regularity.
