About the Author and His Dog
I am new to blogging, but I have decided to give it a try. This blog will chronicle the various things I do that can be considered adventures and will most likely be related to outdoors activities. This blog will cover possible topics from hiking, camping, mountain biking, a little bit of kayaking, possibly road cycling, and other topics as they are presented. If you didn't already know you can find the blog here.
|BeeGee and me at Hanging Rock State Park, NC|
To get things started, I am married, but my wife doesn't enjoy the outdoors like I do and would prefer to leave the adventures to me. I am hoping to change her mind about being outside. My current partner in crime for these adventures is my dog BeeGee, which is how the address was chosen. She frequently goes hiking and biking on shorter rides with me. I recently moved to very South Texas, the Rio Grande Valley, from central North Carolina ( don't worry folks I'm a native Texan). I am looking forward to continuing my outdoor adventures in Texas. The biggest difference being that North Carolina was full of mountain biking and hiking locations , The Appalachian Trail being the big one. Unfortunately, The Rio Grande Valley has very limited hiking and mountain biking opportunities. This saddens me because those are two of my favorite activities; however, it appears new possibilities are being presented in the form of fishing and bay kayaking.
I figure BeeGee deserves her own specific introduction as she will be my accomplice in most, if not all my adventures. She is almost 5 years old and I have had her for a little over a year, I got her from a shelter. She is a mix of something, lab/terrier or possibly lab/schnauzer. We have taken a few agility classes so she can do some nifty tricks, like jump through tires, and is mostly behaved. She loves running and carries her own backpack on most outings. She is energetic and sweet but will unfortunately give chase to woodland creatures if given too much of a free reign.
So if you are from South Texas go ahead and fill me in on how you get you adventure fix and please leave any feedback for improvements.
