When I was young, my father used to bring me hiking and we'd explore nature. We went to the "Great Swamp" in Morris County and follow the trails and discover things. My grandfather used to bring me to Jockey Hallow or Washington's Headquarters and we'd do a little local adventure.
I have since gotten older, and I have forgotten about the joy of these things. I really want to take this up again. Go out on a Saturday, and explore. I have a road trip "planned" but is that the point? Shouldn't I just go out and do it? I think that part of the problem with being an adult is the responsibilities that go along with it. The weekends are times to catch up on shopping/cleaning/whatever. I spit on that. I'm going to get all of that done during the week, as expanding my possibilities makes a Saturday or Sunday worthwhile.
So, what are some adventure ideas?
- Get here before they open and get a pizza
- Go look at all the photo exhibits at the Art Museum
- Visit Poe's grave to see the Poe Toaster
- Learn to make biscuits (they don't need to be away, they can be just A LOT of things done in one day until mastery is achieved!)
- PDT - NYC
I wonder what I could add to this. I wonder if adventures are adventurous enough. Remember my criteria. Local. Can be done in a day. Make memories, people!
