Roaming Parkers 2018-2019 Adventure Writing

What does adventure mean to you? That is a question that we examined a bit this past year.

We mostly define it similar to British adventurer, Alastair Humphries –

An adventure is basically whenever you go somewhere out of the ordinary, spend the night there (preferably camping), and do something fun (preferably novel and physically active)!

That pretty much leaves a lot of wiggle room for The Roaming Parkers to fit in some Travel, Adventure, Conservation, and Food!

Here’s you a sampler of some of our adventures during our second year of blogging!

Flash Flood at Potkopinu

We’d hiked the Old Natchez Trace through the little Potkopinu Valley before – but never during a flash flood! That was certainly an adventure!

50-Miler on the Bogue Chitto River

…and we’d canoed on the Bogue Chitto before – but never through 50-miles of blood-sucking leeches! That was certainly an adventure!

Hiking Shiloh Battlefield

…and we’d hiked at Shiloh Battlefield before – but not through creeks teeming with lampreys! That was certainly an adventure!

…and speaking of Shiloh – here is a story about a Shiloh veteran with a real sense of adventure!
