Event Report: An Epic Day at the GoPro Mountain Games 2017

Picture this: I’m standing next to a man wearing a unicorn onesie. He has a GoPro mounted to his chest. His dog has a GoPro attached to his collar. Across the river, the whitewater kayaker just pulled her kayak out of the water. Her GoPro is…

“Conch cakes, conch fritters, conch fingers, conch salad, cracked conch, conch wrap, conch in a bag, conch on a pizza…” I was reading the lunch menu, feeling like the shrimp-impassioned Bubba from Forrest Gump. We were sitting by the harbor of Elbow Cay in the…

It’s not a campground. It definitely wasn’t on a trail. And I didn’t even need to throw up a bear bag before calling it a night. That’s right – I stayed at my very first bed & breakfast.
