A Guide to Charlottesville

A Guide to Charlottesville

Resting an easy hour-and-a-half drive’s west of Richmond, Charlottesville is both, at times, a big town and a small city. On the surface, this college town looks quaint, forever indebted to Thomas Jefferson for putting a world-class university at the doorstep of the Blueridge. Although the University is certainly an active member in shaping the...

Virginia Day Hikes

Virginia Day Hikes

In a perfect world, we’d all be able to drop everything and spend a few months hiking the Appalachian Trail. Although hiking for a couple of months might not be an option, a day hike is certainly doable. Fortunately, a two hour drive west from Richmond, VA will take you to the heart of the...

Camp Runamok

Camp Runamok

A lot of us probably have great memories of summer camp. It was a time to get away, a weird, glorious collection of hikes, awkward dances, and archery.

Icelandic Expectations

Icelandic Expectations

Nine months ago, I bought a ticket to Iceland. I know — so what, right? Well, I kind of forgot about it until recently. And it turns out that this is something that I do regularly. Let me explain. I have a tendency to buy things really far in advance. The irony is that I’m...

All Along The Fire Tower

All Along The Fire Tower

"If, in Virginia, we may point with justifiable pride to our fire control record, our ability to do so is due in no small measure to the effective service rendered by our Lookout Watchmen." - Handbook for Lookout Watchmen, 1948. Fifteen pages long, the Handbook for Lookout Watchmen is a quick read. Five of those...
Archaeology + Montpelier

Archaeology + Montpelier

If there is one thing that Virginia has an abundance of, it’s history. And it’s not that unremarkable, something-happened-in-the-past-kind of history. It’s the bonafide, first-of-its-kind history. And we all know that's the good stuff. Early colonial settlements? Yep, we got the first. Battlefields? Which ones do you want to see: Revolutionary War or Civil War?...
