The 100th Blog Post and Year 2

It has been two whole years since I started blogging and many adventures have been had by all. This has been a great journey and I have had as much personal growth as I had in year one. As a family, we had many more adventures and experiences than we have had in previous years, mainly because of COVID 19. Getting outside is the best way to social distance and luckily we have a governor that really pushed people to get outdoors

This wonderful blogging community is better than ever. I have learned alot more this last year, about myself and about blogging.

Year two also brought an opportunity to write a book. At the beginning of December, I was approached to write the Castiron Camping Cookbook. I am not a cook, I am just an outdoorsy mom who loves to be outside, make great food, and write about my adventures. I was a little apprehensive and the blog took a backseat for January through May, but it was one of the best experiences I have ever had. Be sure to check it out.

I learned that dreams (such as writing) can come true. I am still working on other goals such as the Adventure More Podcast, which is still on the back burner. I am hoping that we launch it in January. I am also working on creating some outdoor online courses that I am hoping to have ready by November.

We did not go backpacking this year but spent a lot of time in new places. We explored more in Idaho (it’s right over the border) and even camped in a paid campground. We usually camp in disbursed camping, so it was an adventure too. We spent over thirty-five nights camping this summer, which altogether would be almost a month of camping.

My goals this year are to complete my online courses, launch the podcast and be more consistent. Life is crazy and then got crazier with COVID.

To all of my wonderful readers and supporters, thank you for hanging in for one more year. Blogging is not easy and so many people give up the first year, and even more the second. This is absolutely a marathon and not a sprint.

So here is to year three and I hope to inspire you more! And always remember, be outside with no limits.

    Congrats on your 100th post. Blogging is hard work and there are days I certainly wish to throw in the towel. Thankful for the close-knit community and people willing to share with others.
