Hey, guys and girls. I am not living in NC anymore. I had to move due to personal reason. However, I can’t really blog too much about the great outdoors of nc if I don’t live there anymore. I will not be posting on this for a while or maybe never. However, not all is loss. I have starting a new blog called The Fun World of Dating. It may not be hiking and all of the adventures but it is still an adventures. I may later when I found more area to hike, create a new blog. For new, please check my new blog. You may just get a kick out of it. I just posting my first post on it and there is a fun poll to it. At least, check it out for the poll, you may get a laugh out of it.

I am so excellent!!! Today, I went hiking with friends at Fall Lake State Recreation Area Rolling View Trail head (part of the mountain to sea trail). It was rainy, but it was awesome! We gather in the parking lot before the entrance and begin looking for the trail. At first the rain was light but we had our rain gear just in case. We found the trail which is what we thought until it took us to a campground so we back track and found the right trail.
Review the map
Throughout the trail, we saw some cool looking mushrooms and the cutest Eastern Box turtle. I did see a deer but it move so fast no one else saw it.
This mushroom is called Amanita jacksonii.
Half way, we pick blackberries. Picking blackberries is not so easy for there is blood and the battle of tug o’ war with the thorns. A few time, my hair got stuck and I got my fair share of cuts. It started raining again when we got to the blackberries and it rained heavy on the way back on the trail. It rain so hard on the way back, most of the trail was flooded.
I got all the blackberries I need for making Blackberry Vodka. Which I made today after hiking with my friends. It is pretty easy to make. You just need blackberries, sugar, a jar, and vodka. It takes about 4 months of fermentation and 5 months of aging. I will be moving in a week so it will make a great center piece for my breakfast bar.
I am looking forward to my trip this weekend. I am out today getting things on my list. Right now I am waiting as my car get a oil change. This is my first overnight trip on my own so it is a new adventure. I got my magnesium fire starter, my tent, my new hiking shoes, and I am looking out for a waterproof digital camera.
