Wild Weekend in West Virginia

What a great, but cold weekend!

Every year, including this one, we set up our camp down in the New River Gorge and go without running water or electricity for 3 days.  My exercises, for the weekend, came in the form of paddling the raft, hiking, lifting rocks, attempting to chop wood, and of course doing my squats and lunges; which I do daily.

So, just remember that nature is as good of a place as any to get in a great workout!
