trip to enchanted rock

Last weekend, we took an adventure day to go climb up Enchanted Rock. We went all the way up to the top. I was a little terrified coming back down, but we made it round trip in one piece!

It was a nice, sunny day, with a little bit of chill in the wind. We were glad we had long sleeves when we got to the summit. The wind up there was cold on our ears.


When you are this far away, you think, oh it doesn’t look that steep. Extremely deceiving. Like a stair stepper times a hundred, plus the added danger of falling off the side.

We took a different route home and stopped for some bbq. The meat here is good, but they don’t have pickles on the side. Instead they have jalepenos. Just in case pickles with your bbq is a deciding factor.


We made it home in the afternoon, and then took a nice nap. All that danger and sandwiches made us sleepy.

Roadtrip BBQ

Last week on a trip to Raleigh, NC for work we went to a really great BBQ place located right by the NCSU campus called The Pit. I love BBQ so I was pretty excited when I found out that was where we were headed for dinner. If you don’t know, the girl and I usually try and eat some type of BBQ once a week and typically we end up at Rudy’s because you can’t really go wrong with them. 

Anyways, The Pit specializes in authentic whole-hog, pit-cooked barbecue and I was told that I had to try the Carolina ribs so that is what I got. Long story short, the team and I enjoyed more than our fair share of great food and I did not have to eat again until dinner time the next day.
