January 2012 Adventure of the Month

When I decided to take on ‘Adventure of the Month’ for 2012, I wanted to prove to myself and to others that you don’t have to spend a lot of money and travel long distances for adventure.  I’m like everyone else and sometimes find it hard to enjoy what’s in my back yard.  Bring on […]
