Yesterday was a fantastic day, I woke up early, made breakfast and drove down to Wissahickon Valley. I met up with the crew from unitedbyblue to hike and participate, I cannot abide calling myself a model, in a photo shoot for their fantastic products with a really great New York wood worker named Brian (pictured above in our blooper selfie).
We hiked for most of the morning, then got lunch and supplies to pseudo camp out in Fort Washington Park. It was fantastic. Not only did I get to roast marshmallows, but Brian and I chopped wood with an axe, which I am slightly good at. I learned I am very good at throwing a knife, and less successful at throwing a wonky hatchet. I came home smelling like a campfire, my hands a mess and a little gash on my palm from the axe handle.
I genuinely had a fantastic time not only hiking and camping but with being a very positive person, which I feel has been very difficult for me lately. The UBB gang are enthusiastic, encouraging and awesome. They have a wonderful dynamic and have a wonderful business.
