The Sierra Shirt in Blackwatch Plaid


 


Oh man, guys, I know it’s still summer, but this is the shirt I’ve been dreaming of for a long time. Finally fit for a lady!  Ya’ll know I love the blackwatch and I’m not shy to say Taylor Stitch has been a long-running favorite.  Reduced from $125 to $98 bucks, I’m definitely thinking it’s time to treat yo’ self.

Adirondack Motorcycle Camping Trip












Armed with snacks, wallet, sunglasses and helmet, I was ready to tackle a long weekend vacation with my dad.  A father/daughter motorcycle trip to Paul Smith's College in the Adirondack Mountains of New York state.  The blue skies would seemingly go on forever, only ever disrupted by a rainstorm now and then.  Lakes speckled all through the region and dotting the topo maps we really didn't even need to carry.  A hike up St. Regis Mountain and a canoe paddle in Lower St. Regis Lake are all you really need to reset and unwind.  

We logged nearly 850 miles on the Harley Davidson bikes we rode.  My dad brought along his Ultra Classic and I rented a Dynaglide since my 400 Yamaha was not in perfect shape.  The Dynaglide was actually a great bike with a ton of power.  The windshield had to go after the first 200mi, so we strapped it onto my dad's bike as to not limit my "coolness factor."  

We drank a lot of crappy beer (i.e. Molson and Labatt), but it was still great.  I caught a fish and reeled in even more sea weed.  It's some of the most pristine nature you could ever imagine.  A world that you find hard to believe is only a 7 hour drive from Philly.  Long, but worth it.  The longer the better when you have the wind in your face and two wheels on the ground.  Ride on

Francisville Pop Up Pool



The weeks have been flying by this summer.  My days of being a full-time student and part-time worker are winding down, but I'm excited for the change.  I've been spending my time at the Francisville Pop Up Pool, a little public pool in my neighborhood of N. Philly, and enjoying the days I have free before the reality of next month sets in.

I'm about to embark on a 4 day motorcycle ride to the Adirondack Mountains in New York state with my dad.  

I plan to eat an ice cream cone from every stand along the way.  Stay tuned, keep enjoying your summer.

Early Summer























I spent a couple of days back home.  First order of business was ice cream.  Then, between rain showers and playing with the dog, we managed to split some firewood.  Oh and of course, ended the week out with a little bit of ice cream for everyone.

Beer Review (54): El Sully by 21st Amendment Brewery

El Sully | 21st Amendment Brewery

Brewery21st Amendment Brewery Beer: Mexican Lager | Beer Advocate Score: 80 Abv: 4.8%

Oh heyyyyyy, are you ready for a tasty new offering from 21st?  Yeah, you'll like this one.  It's perfect for heading to the beach, super smooth, light and refreshing.  Is this a complex, craft beer you'd expect from 21st?  No, its a much simpler beer than that, but done with a superior quality compared to those other cervezas that are popular for regular beach go-ers ;)
