Morning all! Not sure about you guys, but we are so ready for this weekend to get started. This week felt extra long, probably because the weather was beautiful and we were cooped up indoors. Hope you all have a great couple of days, see you on Monday!

G&M will be reunited this Sunday to see Cheerleader (check out their band profile here), and we’re pretty pumped to meet up with a bunch of friends to cheer them on (ha, get it?). Christa will be visiting her brother at Roger Williams for family weekend, and Reg is going to be having a weekend of hostessing, with her old college from coming to visit on Saturday, and then Christa on Sunday and Monday. We’ll be wandering the streets of Boston on Monday, camera in hand – so hopefully we’ll have a post soon of our galavanting!

Mount Monadnock

You may have seen us mention our hike in New Hampshire from a couple of weekends back, and now we’re finally getting around to posting about it!

We actually have renamed this epic hike to Profanity Mountain, because holy sh*t it was hard. We definitely didn’t quite know what we were getting ourselves into, but if you’ll notice in Exhibit B, picture #2, my body is lunging with all of it’s might up a massive incline — this was the entire hike up, for TWO hours. So yeah, needless to say we were exhausted, but so glad we did it. The view from the top was pretty unreal, and we were feeling mighty accomplished by the end of it.

So if you ever find yourself in this area of New England and are up for a bit of a challenge, this Profanity Mountain hike is a must. And now that we’re extremely experienced/advanced hikers (chyea, okay) we have a few tips for you. Check ’em out as you scroll!

01. Good gear — moisture-wicking clothes, shoes with solid traction, and a headband will save your lives

02. Snacks! — don’t leave home without ’em. We brought along a container of cashews, small turkey sandwiches, granola bars, and LOTS of water. If we didn’t have these, it’s quite possible that we would have passed out.

03. Sunscreen — we lucked out and our day was pretty grey, but if it had been any sunnier, we would have likely been little lobsters. It’s easy to forget because you’re amongst so many trees, but your shoulders will definitely see the light of day, and a lot of it.

04. Map it out — they’ll offer one to you, and you should take it. It’s pretty helpful in knowing which trail to take and figuring out what level you’re about to take on (plus they’re pretty!).

05. Take breaks — if you’re pooped, you’re pooped! Ain’t nothin’ wrong with that. Find a nice comfy looking rock, pop a squat, take in the views, and thank your body for being so good to you!
