The current @outtherepodcast ambassador theme is perseverance. Two years ago this week I did one of the coolest things I’ve ever done in the outdoors: I took this kiddo on her very first overnight backpacking trip. Her bravery and #perseverance through some pretty major suck inspired me. She got soaked in a thunderstorm the first night, and got sick the second night, and for some reason she still wanted to go back again. She showed me #whatgirlsaremadeof and what it means to #hikelikeagirl. Two years is too long! I think it’s time for another Tink and Meerkat adventure very soon. ——— Have you ever introduced someone new to the outdoors? ——— 📍this is Tsalaguwetiyi (Cherokee) land . . . . . #getkidsout #girlswhohike #adventurelikeagirl #sheexplores #optoutside #sweatydirtyhappy #forceofnature #kidswhohike #nationalforests #mypublicland #publiclandowner #wandernorthga #AppalachianTrail #trektheAT #georgiatomaine #girlsgonebackpacking #appalachianhikers #hiketheAT #wildeast #gooutsideandplay #getoutstayout #outtherepodcast #withguthook 4 days ago by @adventurelikeagirl

#WATERFALLWEDNESDAY ———————————— I’ll be the first to admit that I used to be one of those hikers who bailed at the first sign of inclement weather. Cloudy skies and a chance of rain would be just enough of an excuse to stay indoors and be lazy. I’m not sure when it happened, but somewhere along the way I decided to stop making excuses and go anyway. That’s when I learned: {Rain makes for the most impressive waterfalls, and cloudy skies lend themselves to the most spectacular sunsets} ——— Do you hike even when the weather isn’t great?

Our founder Tiffany Pixie Duong has been selected to represent @outtherepodcast , a kickass outdoors podcast about life's big questions and wild spaces, as an Ambassador. Listen to her episode about what led her to leave her law career and ultimately co-found our media company for the protection of our oceans, climate, and planet: bit.ly/TDintotheblue. And tune in as she introduces us all to this awesome podcast! #BrandAmabassador #StartUpStories #OceanAdvocate #Repost @outtherepodcast • • • • • Meet Tiffany Duong @lilicedt @oceanrebels one of our new show ambassadors. You may recognize her name as the subject and voice of episode #75 “Into the Blue.” If you haven’t heard her story, go back and listen 🎧 to it from Oct 2018. Tiffany represents a trail blazer who courageously changed careers after law school and life as a lawyer to become an ocean conservationist + activist. We are excited to have her on the ambassador team and for you to get to know her. In her own words, Tiffany says, “I was a by-the-book, do-good-in-school, A-student-turned-lawyer. And it made me so unhappy. A dive trip helped me realize that, and I quit. I rebooted my life with slow travel, deliberate connections, and lots of time in the wild (Amazon rainforest, scuba diving everywhere, Patagonia). All of this has helped me connect to what drives me: protecting our planet, and especially our oceans. Since I quit 3 years ago, I've dabbled in journalism (including an ‘Out There’ episode), trained as a climate activist, tagged sharks, and restored coral reefs. It's been wild, and I've never felt so myself as I do now. I love that the outdoors strip us of the voices in society and our lives that intend to guide us, but that often lead us astray from our true paths.” _________________ 1. 👉Follow her @oceanrebels @lilicedt and @outtherepodcast 2. ✍️Comment below if you heard Tiffany’s piece on the show. 3. ↗️Direct message (DM) us something you want to see Tiffany do as an ambassador. #outthere #outdoorambassadors #womenoutdoors #diversityoutdoors #optoutside #podcastambassadors #brandambassador #outtherepodcast 6 days ago by @oceanrebels

Alexandria “Ali” Shinn @ladywiththedogs is another new show ambassador for us. She hails from North Carolina and has a life of adventuring planned. She’s fiercely honest, reflective and focused on living her own authentic life. She plans “to talk about going against the ‘system’ and giving yourself the opportunity to figure out what you actually want from life. I want to give people (like me) the courage to do something different; to talk about my own struggles with depression, anxiety and weight-loss; to show how being honest with myself + my wants opened my eyes to possibilities.” Ali says, “I’ve felt a little out there my entire life—like the life I was living wasn’t meant for me. I started to follow people saying ‘no’ to the ‘typical life’ and going after a life they dreamt of. I started to focus on myself— my happiness, my mental stability, my health and my dogs became my only priorities. This lead me to more time outside, less time worrying about how much money I was making or how nice my material things were. I found who I was and who I wanted to be. I found that I need a lot less stuff, less living space and a lot more free time outside and with my dogs. —————— 1. 👉Follow Ali @ladywiththedogs and @outtherepodcast 2. 😃Comment below if you can relate to Ali’s story. 3. ↗️Direct message (DM) is with ideas or inquiries you want to see from Ali or any of our ambassadors. ———————- #outtherepodcast #showambassadors #optoutside #outtherepodcast #brandambassador #liveyouradventures #outdoorlife #vanlife #outdoorambassadors #womenoutdoors #diversityoutdoors #optoutside #podcastambassadors #outdoorpodcasts 6 days ago by @outtherepodcast

Meet Ashley White @the_gentleman_lumberjack one of our new show ambassadors. He’s a Midwesterner, a husband, a father of four, and a working professional. We are excited for you to meet him + to hear more of what he has to say like this, “I want to inspire people who may look like me, feel like me, or have a family makeup like mine to be inspired + to feel comfortable in their skin + space outside. I want those who may need to hear a story like theirs, not politically-lead, but as an honor of perspective or truth. I want to share that it’s possible to be ‘out there’ even though you may not see it yet... I am a husband and a father of four —3 girls + 1 boy—which makes me also a feminist. I am a ‘weekend warrior’ trying to instill nature into my children’s lives for a sense of adventure and appreciation for the Earth. I also lead a backpacking network at work and encourage people to share stories about outdoor experiences with people from a range skillsets to inspire one another... If time and money were not an issue, I would be a park ranger. But I work in the corporate world and am always aspiring to help people understand their passion and the road to getting there... I still take micro adventures that fit my lifestyle, resources + family because being outside helps... I want my perspective as an ‘everyday person’ dedicated to the outdoors + living a ‘regular life’ to inspire others to get outside. _________________ 1. 👉Follow Ashley @the_gentleman_lumberjack and @outtherepodcast 2. ✍️Comment below with how you get outside in your life. 3. ↗️Direct message (DM) us with ideas for Ashley to show/discuss as an ambassador. ———————- #outtherepodcast #outdoorambassadors #womenoutdoors #diversityoutdoors #optoutside #podcastambassadors #brandambassador #outdoorpodcasts #diversityoutdoors #dadsoutdoors #hikeitbaby #outdoorfamilies 1 week ago by @outtherepodcast
Hike 38/52 #LTC Lookout Tower 13/21 #WC100 Waterfall 20/100 Mile 177.2/300 Elevation gain 403ft Yesterday it actually did rain all day - the weatherman finally got it right 😂. I went out in search of another waterfall and #firetower to check off my #carolinamountainclub challenge lists. The first stop was Indian Creek Falls in #greatsmokymountainsnationalpark (swipe for photo). We also passed Tom Branch Falls on the way, and about 283,647 tourists headed out for tubing down Deep Creek. ——— The second stop was Barnett Knob tower off the #blueridgeparkway. This tower is unique in that instead of a live-in cab like many of the towers in the area, there was a small cabin at the base for the lookout to live in.

⁣“⁣I don’t have to be strong and I don’t have to prove anything. I just need to do what I need, for me and that’s enough” -Willow, @outtherepodcast ⁣ ⁣⁣⁣⁣ Sometimes my head gets the best of me and I cry. ⁣ ⁣ ⁣⁣⁣⁣ My feelings overwhelm me. I let them wash over me and try to understand the emotional waves that have taken me over. ⁣ ⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ My anxiety might kicks in, the dark thoughts creep into my light, the pressure builds and my heart races. ⁣ ⁣⁣⁣ ⁣So I got outside. I take a deep breath of fresh air. I gulp it in like I’ve been held in a box for days. ⁣ I feel the packs coats brushing up against me, their wet noses finding my hands and face. ⁣ And my body relaxes.

I had a blissful, mostly relaxing week in Virginia last week followed by one of the most stressful and exhausting weeks I’ve had yet in school. In three hours I’ll be done with clinicals for the week and mountain bound to spend a few days in my favorite #NationalForest.

Hike 35/52 Mile 172.7/300 Elevation gain 450ft Cabin Creek Falls is a short trail in Grayson Highlands State Park that forms a loop. Well, we did the loop backward and thought we had to take a side trail to the waterfall. Borderline bushwhacking and rock climbing brought us to this spot, which isn’t the waterfall we came to see but I’d argue it’s better (we found the other one too). . . . . . #waterfallwednesday #waterfallsofinstagram #chasingwaterfalls #wildeast #graysonhighlandsstatepark #southernappalachia #52hikechallenge #girlswhohike #adventurelikeagirl #hikelikeagirl #fatgirlshiking #fatandoutdoorsy #takingupspaceoutdoors #optoutside #forceofnature #sweatydirtyhappy #meetvirginia #outtherepodcast #gooutsideandplay #allwomenalltrails #alltrails 1 week ago by @adventurelikeagirl

Hike 33/52 Mile 167.4/300 Elevation gain 735ft On Friday Shooter and I hiked another small (6.4 mile) section of the #AppalachianTrail that I missed in 2015. I wasn’t expecting any views during this stretch but was pleasantly surprised to pop out into a cattle field toward the end of the hike to some nice views and one lonely cow who was very excited to have some company for a few minutes. ——— This is the first shot from my #GoPro that I’m posting in my gallery, so we will see how it turns out! ——— Dickey Gap ➡️ VA 670 . . . . . #trektheAT #georgiatomaine #sectionhiker #fatgirlshiking #fatandoutdoorsy #takingupspaceoutdoors #girlswhohike #hikelikeagirl #adventurelikeagirl #optoutside #sweatydirtyhappy #forceofnature #whiteblaze #meetvirginia #southernappalachia #outdoorwomen #womenwhohike #withguthook #wildeast #allwomenalltrails #hikingwithdogs #standardpoodle #goprogirl #outtherepodcast #sheexplores #appalachianhikers #virginiaisformountainlovers #52hikechallenge 2 weeks ago by @adventurelikeagirl
Just returned from kayaking the #apostleislands in #wisconsin. I toured the chain for three days with @lostcreekadventures. I learned so much about the history of the area from our amazing guides @blossoming_wildflower and Gage. I also learned a ton about myself. I came face to face with a bear and didn’t panic or run. I also started the trip not feeling well, only to get progressively worse and really struggled through the first couple days. I’m normally one of the strongest individuals on a trip. This time I was the weakest and needed support from the group until the last leg. It taught me the power of community and how fast you can create it when faced with adversity. I also learned I can power through more pain than I thought before. You are always stronger than you think. Remember that. Has anyone else ever gotten really sick on an adventure?

One year ago today I climbed a really big mountain. Summiting a 14ker is not something I actually thought I was capable of, and success has never tasted sweeter. I didn’t know in that moment what a profound impact this summit would have, but so many wonderful things happened because of it. The most wonderful thing was gaining these two badass hiking women as friends. I cannot wait to {hopefully} hike a couple more 14kers in a few weeks. ——— I’ve been unintentionally pretty absent from social media this week because I spent the whole week in the backwoods of Virginia hiking - and not having much signal. I’ll catch up with posting my @52hikechallenge hikes and other adventures in the upcoming days, but this memory was too special not to share today.

Hike 32/52 Mile 161/300 Elevation gain 760ft In 2015 I was desperately clinging to my intentions of #thruhiking the #AppalachianTrail and telling myself that the excruciating pain, swelling, and bruising in my left foot was a sprain - while really knowing it was something much worse. For nearly two weeks and over 100 miles, I limped down the trail. When I couldn’t go any further for the day, I’d throw my thumb out and hitch the remaining distance my hiking partners had planned for the day so I wouldn’t get separated from them. I justified #yellowblazing by convincing myself I’d return to hike the miles later. Well, it may have taken me four years but yesterday I marked off another 7 mile stretch. ——— Bland, VA ➡️ Laurel Creek . . . . . #trektheAT #georgiatomaine #foottravelonly #longdistancehiking #wildeast #52hikechallenge #fatgirlshiking #fatandoutdoorsy #takemebackpacking #takingupspaceoutdoors #girlswhohike #hikelikeagirl #adventurelikeagirl #allwomenalltrails #withguthook #eastcoastbeastcoast #southernappalachia #hikeinadress #summerbreak #virginiaisformountainlovers #meetvirginia #womaninthewild #outtherepodcast #getyourassintonature #optoutside #sweatydirtyhappy #forceofnature 2 weeks ago by @adventurelikeagirl
Hike 31/52 Mile 154/300 Elevation gain 583ft While I’ve been to Dismal Falls at least twice before, somehow I had managed to miss a small 1.9 mile section of the #AppalachianTrail between the falls and the road every time I’ve been.

Today’s edition of podcasts and painting. On @outtherepodcast , “a story about the parts of ourselves we give up when we choose to become parents.” ⊙ Feeling this one, for sure. ⊙ I didn’t make art for three years after our first child was born. The ideas were there, always percolating, but I felt unhinged, even angry. Certainly, the intense sleep deprivation played a role, but it was more than that. I was the primary “caregiver” at the time (still am, usually), and those responsibilities together with my day gig kept me out of the studio altogether, apart from what fuels and sustains me. The shock wasn’t limited to the studio (or lack thereof), either. Naively, I believed I’d be a super dad, that I was somehow especially well suited to the role. I was wrong. Becoming a parent has been the hardest, most uncomfortable and exhausting thing I’ve ever done. I’m not a bad dad, by any account, but I’m a far cry from the Dada All-Star I presumed I’d be. ⊙ I’m grateful to be back in the studio again, reclaiming my sense of self as I begin new bodies of work. Doing this – making marks on paper – has granted me a little perspective. We don’t necessarily have to be dry husks, shells of our former selves, once we become parents, but we are forced to reckon with what most matters to us, and then figure out how to nurture those parts of ourselves no less than we do our children. That’s no mean task on five hours (or fewer) of sleep and four tantrums a day. It's, um, a work in progress. ๑ ๑ ๑ ๑ ๑ #wip #workinprogress #art #drawing #sumiink #worksonpaper #outtherepodcast #podcasts #parenting #artistparents #artistsofinstagram #studio #studiotime #SonomaCountyartist #christopherreiger #reiger 3 weeks ago by @christopherreiger
Four years ago today, I quit my first #thruhike attempt at mile 713.1 #northbound on the #AppalachianTrail. I left the trail due to injuries and dwindling finances, and because of those injuries I left a few of those 713 miles unhiked. Next week I’m heading back to fill in some of the gaps. ——— I often get asked if I’ll attempt another thru hike. If you’d asked me that question on June 28, 2015, the answer would surely have been a resounding no, but I found myself right back on trail a year later, trying again. If you’d asked me that question on September 3, 2016 when I ended my second thru hike attempt, the answer would have been HELL NO, and I meant it. But if you ask me today, three years removed from the pain, the sweat, the tears, and the bug bites, I’ll probably pause for a second and smile before responding, “right now, the goal is to finish.” But that’s pretty far from “no” isn’t it? . . . . . #trektheAT #georgiatomaine #foottravelonly #nopainnorainnomaine #americaslongtrails #longdistancehiking #takemebackpacking #mypubliclands #publiclandowner #wildeast #appalachianhikers #womenwhohike #allwomenalltrails #outtherepodcast #hikelikeagirl #adventurelikeagirl #girlswhohike #fatgirlshiking #fatandoutdoorsy #takingupspaceoutdoors #eastcoastbeastcoast #blueridgeoutdoors #meetvirginia #thetrek #optoutside #forceofnature #sweatydirtyhappy 3 weeks ago by @adventurelikeagirl

It's #mountaincrushmonday ! If you would have asked me three years ago whether I'd ever attempt a #14ker I probably would have laughed in your face. These big mountains had a mystical quality to them, a surrealness that seemed outside of my physical capabilities. Somewhat by accident, during my second trip to Colorado last summer, I ended up agreeing to make an attempt at Grays and Torrey's - a typical first 14ker duo. I was still laughing at myself as I set up camp at the trailhead and prepared for a too-short night's sleep before a 2am start time. I was sure I wouldn't make it to the top, and I was OK with that. I was going to hike #myownway : slowly and methodically until I needed to stop - then I'd turn around and go back.⁣ ------⁣ Except, I did make it to the top. Of Grays anyway. My group decided to save Torrey's for another day. This photo was taken atop Grays Peak, looking over the saddle at Torrey's, a summit I have yet to claim. Yet. The difference between me now and me that morning is that now I know I can. ⁣ ------⁣ The current @outtherepodcast theme is "My Own Way" and I think embracing this mindset is the best way to advance your abilities at your own pace. What challenges have you overcome as you've spent more time in the outdoors and pushed your limits? What would you be comfortable trying today that there's no way you would have done when you first started?⁣ .⁣ .⁣ .⁣ .⁣ .⁣ #coloRADical #14000ft #peakbagging #elevatedperspective #altitudeadjustment #optoutside #outtherepodcast #getyourassintonature #gowest #rockymountainhigh #highincolorado #coloradotography #greettheoutdoors #getyourassintonature #grayspeak #torreyspeak #thetrek #CDT #14kers #alltrails #gaiagps #neversummer #mymountainhome #gooutsideandplay #liveadventurously #forgeyourownpath #goatworthy 4 weeks ago by @adventurelikeagirl

“What if you could find pleasure in pain?” That’s a question from one of the recent @outtherepodcast episodes. I wanted to share it because so often people look at my pictures or hear my stories and say, “that sounds like it sucked!” 😂 The truth is sometimes it does and sometimes it really hurts. For some that pain is rejuvenation from feeling numb, for others it’s a showcase of “grit” against adversity and for many it may just be type 2 fun. You can go on adventures or a trail and not have to lean into “the suck.” In fact, if you’re just starting that is probably best. You also may never enjoy it even as a seasoned hiker and that’s okay too. For me, I sort of have a romance with pain. It shows me I bend but don’t break. Let me be clear, this isn’t a tough guy post. I will legit cry in the woods if given the opportunity. I can only take a couple trips a year that allow me to engage in my love affair with a bit of adversity in nature. Adversity in the corporate world doesn’t give me the same therapy. It just tears me down with little to no element of a recharge. Anyway, go give the Pleasure in Pain episode a listen. I’d love to hear what you thought and where you fall on the pain/fun spectrum. How do you use the pain? #outtherepodcast #weekendwarrior #theadventuregap #melaninbasecamp #wondermore #breathe #onlyinmn #hikeminnesota #breathethroughit #peoplewhoadventure 1 month ago by @the_gentleman_lumberjack

I’m contemplating getting an action camera. I think I could get some cool dog action shots as well as being able to actually get photos and video footage when I’m on the water (I’m always too scared to take my iPhone). I’m trying to decide between the @djiglobal Osmo Action and the @gopro Hero7. Any of you have personal experience with either of these? My primary needs are a)completely waterproof and b)smartphone integration via an app or WiFi/Bluetooth so I don’t have to use a computer to upload content.

Day 15 - Boulder and Broomfield, CO. For about 6 months I’ve been working for a podcast called @outtherepodcast (def check it out) and had the opportunity to meet the host I’ve been working with in person for the first time! We met at @averybrewingco to catchup and plan for @outdoorretailer . On the tail end @howtopoopinthewoods joined in on the fun! I passed out after and napped for 2 hours. I seem to have caught a bit of a cold. In the evening I celebrated Edie’s 2nd birthday with @delectablekat , @kbcaleb , and their friends and family. #outtherepodcast #averybrewing #averybrewingco #brewery #outdoorretailer #podcast #outdoorpodcast #podcasthost #workingontheroad #colorado #roadtripofalifetime #roadtrip #womenwhoadventure #womenwhogetoutside #1monthontheroad #womenontheroad #roadtrip2019 #june2019roadtrip #june2019ontheroad #pinkstarjess #pinkstarjessroadtrip 1 month ago by @pinkstarjess
I want to take a moment to introduce myself, because I haven’t done that in ages and there are quite a few of you who are new followers. • I’m Stacia 👋🏻 • I’m 30 😳 • I’m in nursing school 👩🏼‍⚕️ and currently live in the southernmost part of the state of Georgia, aka Satan’s armpit. I hate it here. • I call the mountains of western NC home • I have a best buddy named Shooter, he’s a 6 year old Standard Poodle 🐩 and he doesn’t currently live with me (because college) • Contrary to what it may look like, I don’t hike every day (I wish) but I get outside as much as possible. ——— Now, about followers. I’m trying really hard to cultivate a community of like-minded people: folks who share a passion for the outdoors and for supporting and uplifting each other within the outdoors industry (especially women, minorities, and other underrepresented groups). I follow accounts that represent my interests, that post relevant content, and that push me to think outside my comfort zone. I don’t typically follow accounts that are based on marketing or selling, accounts that just post pretty pictures with quotes or irrelevant content attached, or of people who’s interests or content don’t really align with mine. ——— That said, if you follow me, I WILL look at your account and I will follow you back if your account fits with my interests. Please don’t take it personally if I don’t; I want to see a specific type of content in my feed and I follow accounts that produce that type of content. I don’t do “follow for follow”. I also use an app to track who unfollows me - so those of you who like to follow, wait a few days until I follow you back, and then unfollow to keep your follower count low: you’re not getting anywhere with me and that’s really silly. One last thing: I don’t normally request to follow private accounts that I don’t know personally, so if your account is private and you think I’d enjoy your content, feel free to shoot me a dm or drop a comment letting me know - otherwise I assume you have a private account for a reason. ——— Questions or comments?

In 2016, I walked away from my job, my friends, my incredible (and affordable) apartment, and my dog. I intended to hike the entire length of the #AppalachianTrail , the same as I’d intended the year prior. ——— 750 miles later, I walked off the trail in the White Mountains of New Hampshire, less than halfway into my flip-flop #thruhike attempt, due to overuse injuries in both of my feet. For a second year in a row, foot injuries squashed my dreams of finishing the trail. I felt defeated and discouraged. Worse than that, I was in so much pain that I couldn’t hike once I left the trail. It would be months before I could pick up a backpack again. Now, three years later, I’m still fighting chronic foot pain due to the injuries I sustained on trail. I still can’t do the mileage I’d like to do - and a heavy pack isn’t helping matters. ——— This is my story, and this is why I want to join the #lighterpackclub. I’ve tried unsuccessfully to win a @hyperlite_mountain_gear pack during their Trail Days giveaway every year for the last 4 years to replace my 4.5lb pack 😳. I could use a lighter weight sleep system from @thermarest to cut a few more oz. Maybe just maybe if I can get fully onto the #ultralight bandwagon, I can start to enjoy backpacking again, with less pain. . . . . . #girlswhohike #womenwhohike #peoplewhohike #optoutside #forceofnature #sweatydirtyhappy #longdistancehiking #thetrek #trektheAT #thruhiking #backpackinglight #meetvirginia #takemebackpacking #wildeast #hikeinadress #hikelikeagirl #adventurelikeagirl #hyperlite #hikemoreworryless #outtherepodcast #getoutthere #getoutmoretour #gooutsideandplay #thermarest #neverstopexploring #takeahike 1 month ago by @adventurelikeagirl
Lovely post from our ambassador @adventurelikeagirl in response to our latest episode! #Repost @adventurelikeagirl with @repostapp ・・・ In the newest episode of @outtherepodcast , the storyteller talks about connecting to nature through her love of trees - and how she doesn’t really like to camp or sleep outside. I’ve been thinking on this episode and how it relates to the hiking and backpacking communities which I’m a part of. Unfortunately, there’s a dark side of outdoor adventure sports that sounds like this: “you aren’t doing enough miles in a day. Your pack is too heavy. You’re not using the right gear. You’re too out of shape.” ——— Here’s the thing: these attitudes breed elitism and exclusion. The outdoors is for everyone, but not only that, it is for everyone to enjoy the way they choose. The trail runner isn’t missing out on something the saunterer is secretly tuned in to, they are just out there for different reasons. The #thruhiker isn’t more important to the ecology of a trail than the avid #dayhiker. The #peakbagger in Colorado and the mom of three who’s trying to visit every state park in Florida with her kids are made of the same stuff. ——— The #outtherepodcast ambassador theme for this episode is #myownway. It is my hope that anyone who decides to take part in enjoying the outdoors does it their way, on their terms, and feels GOOD about that. I want to issue a challenge to anyone still reading: find one person on @instagram who is enjoying the outdoors differently than you and make a comment to them about how what they are doing is awesome. You’ll feel good about it, and so will they. ——— 📷 by @curiousbehavior (I think lol) . . . . . #14kers #coloRADical #girlswhohike #womenwhohike #adventurelikeagirl #optoutside #forceofnature #sweatydirtyhappy #elevatedperspective #altitudeadjustment #rockymountainhigh #summitseason #fatgirlshiking #fatandoutdoorsy #takingupspaceoutdoors #outdoorwomen #hikerbabes #hikelikeagirl #gooutsideandplay #getoutstayout #getoutthere #peoplewhohike #grayspeak 1 month ago by @outtherepodcast

In my recent story where I asked what kind of content y’all want to see more of, @allison_hana reminded me that I don’t post many photos of the dogs these days. Well, there’s a reason for that. When I started nursing school last August, I had to move back in with my mom in order to save money. She doesn’t allow dogs indoors, and while she adores them and was more than willing to let them live in the yard, that just wasn’t going to work for my two standard poodles. ——— Shooter and Sookie went to live with my dear friends Ji In ( @missdork88 ) and Lawson, who I’ve known since the days when I raised puppies for @guidedogfoundation. They will be adopting Sookie permanently, and Shooter will come back to live with me once I move out of my mom’s house at the end of the year. ——— I haven’t seen the dogs in about three months, so I’m missing them hard. Shooter will be coming with me on a week-long trip in a couple weeks, so we are super excited about that. Anyway, now you know! And if you’d like more cute #hikingwithdogs content, make sure to “like” this photo so I’ll know ☺️. You can also see more of Shooter and friends at @poodlesonadventures. . . . . . #dogsthathike #adventuredogs #dogsonadventures #standardpoodle #poodlesofinstagram #thegreatoutdogs #trailhounds #appalachiantraildogs #gooutsideandplay #optoutside #getoutthere #outtherepodcast #withguthook #828dogs #828isgreat #franklinNC #WNC #lovewhereyoulive #wildeast #mymountainhome #trailsyall #AppalachianTrail #trektheAT #dogfriendlyhikes #dogismycopilot #particoloredpoodle #hikingdognation #hikingdogsofig #towerchasing 1 month ago by @adventurelikeagirl
Hike 29/52 Mile 142.6/300 Elevation gain 22ft Story time! Today my mom and I decided to go for a hike. We drove two towns away and hit the trail at Little Ocmulgee State Park, planning between 3-4 miles. Well, what we didn’t plan for were swarms of quarter-sized man-eating flies relentlessly attacking our heads, despite a thick layer of bug spray. I was swatting like a maniac with my hat and accidentally knocked my glasses off, resulting in us getting eaten alive for 5 minutes while searching for them. We were basically sprinting trying to escape their torment, and ended up cutting the hike short at 1.5 miles. ——— Back at the car, we decided to hit the lake instead. Apparently, the little vampires don’t like sunshine, so we were safe from the bugs out on the water. We were not safe from our incompetent paddling skills, however. Apparently paddling a canoe is different from paddling a kayak and we spun in circles for about 20 minutes before I gave in and looked up a paddling tutorial on YouTube 😂. Once we finally got straightened out, we managed to paddle another 1.5 miles on the water, at peace and free from blood-sucking bugs. ——— 📷 by @bennett5123 . . . . . #paddlemoreworryless #neverstopexploring #gooutsideandplay #getoutstayout #getoutthere #outtherepodcast #canoeing #optoutside #forceofnature #sweatydirtyhappy #outdoorwomen #sheexplores #fatandoutdoorsy #takingupspaceoutdoors #gastateparks #findyourpark #exploregeorgia #outdoorbella #exploremore #gopaddle #southgeorgia #getyourassintonature #summerinthesouth #girlswhohike #adventurelikeagirl #52hikechallenge 1 month ago by @adventurelikeagirl
“I’ve never voiced it aloud, but I’m convinced I possess cellular memories of ancestors sleeping outside at night. Visions of Harriet Tubman warning her latest band of freedom seekers to be quiet on a river bank, with dogs barking in the background, had been planted in my brain since I was in third grade. ... So when Jem suggested we go camping, I didn’t know what to say.” — Carolyn McDonald - Hear Carolyn’s story on the latest episode of Out There.

Don't let the perfect be the enemy of the good. ——— I've been stewing on this concept lately. It's easy to feel overwhelmed when trying to make a difference, either in your own life or globally. But I'm trying to get more comfortable with small changes that make a difference, rather than dismissing these changes because they aren't big enough or good enough. ——— For example, I can't afford an electric or hybrid car, and I can't stop driving right now. But I can purchase a 10 year old, fuel efficient used vehicle that doesn't contribute any new pollution or resource use through production and shipping. I can't sew my own clothes or afford trendy "ethically produced" clothes, but I can buy clothing used, or made of used materials (like these BEAUTIFUL handmade recycled sari skirts from @darngoodyarn ) that aren't contributing to child labor or pollution. Because of my location and my school and work schedule, I can't volunteer on trail maintenance crews every week or month. But I can make sure I always carry my @11thessential (trash bag) and pick up trash along the trail or river I'm currently recreating on. ——— So let's stop patronizing those who are trying because they aren't trying hard enough. Instead, let's encourage everyone to make one more small commitment to change. My small commitment this month has been to do better at always remembering my reusable water bottle. I'm doing pretty good so far. Will you join me? If so, raise your hand 🙋🏼‍♀️ in the comments below and tell me what small change you will commit to right now. ——— 📷 and edits by the talented @frenchgirlblues . . . . . #optoutside #forceofnature #sweatydirtyhappy #gooutsideandplay #keepitwild #outdoorwomen #nantahalanationalforest #towerchasing #firetowers #carolinamountainclub #lookouttowerchallenge #womenwhohike #girlswhohike #adventurelikeagirl #outtherepodcast #leavenotrace #leaveitbetter #publiclandowner #smallchangesbigresults #beyouroutsideself #allwomenalltrails #darngoodyarn #upcycled #packitinpackitout #fatandoutdoorsy #fatgirlshiking #takingupspaceoutdoors #thislandisourland #wildeast #guardiansoftheforest 1 month ago by @adventurelikeagirl
