Croatan National Forest
We’ve been in the Croatan National Forest for a couple of days now. Nicole has been doing a bunch of reading and I have been teaching myself the macOS graphical API’s for an open source project I have been contributing to.
We are moving between a series of campsites along the White Oak river trying to see which we like best. There are 5 of these total, but only 3 are in the national forest. The 3 in the national forest are the ones we are looking at because they are the ones we can camp for free at. Most of the sites have launches so that you can canoe down the White Oak and get picked up at one of the downstream sites. There are also a couple of sites on the other side of the forest we will be getting to next week.
Nic and I also decided that one of the things we should be doing with our free time is getting into shape. We’ve started hiking a little more. Yesterday we went and got a membership to Planet Fitness and did a workout. We plan on going 3 times a week. Pricing wasn’t bad. We got Nic their premium Black Card Membership that allows her to any of their 1500 locations for about $25/month (including annual fees). It also allows her to bring a guest when ever she wants, so I can get in for free.
Neither of us have done much working out lately, so we’re both pretty sore today. On top of things it is raining all day and tonight, so today is a hang around inside the van and lick our wounds kinda day.
