AT PLAY

Camp, hike, bike, run, climb, paddle, cook, laugh, travel... enjoying the outdoors one adventure at a time.


Why we started our blog.

We wanted to share our passion and love of the outdoors while hopefully inspiring others to get outdoors and be AdventurUs. There are definitely people out there who have been doing this longer than us, they are our mentors. There are people out there pushing physical limits that we could probably never achieve, they are our heroes. There are people out there taking their passion for the outdoors and fame to make a difference and bring awareness to important issues, they are our role models. We are the nice normal couple next door with the 2 dogs that you never see on the weekends because we are out playing, exploring and climbing to new heights... literally. 

Getting outdoors provides great opportunities for people everywhere and of all experience levels to connect with nature and get energized. We may have come to the party a little late… but are making up for lost time with our enthusiasm, by getting outdoors, and by exploring as much as possible.

This blog covers our adventures, gear reviews, interviews with people we think are awesome and pretty much anything that has to do with the outdoors. The “Us” in AdventurUs does not refer to just us, but ALL of US! We hope to inspire and connect others to the outdoors one adventure at a time!


Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do, so throw off the bowlines, sail away from safe harbor, catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore, Dream, Discover.
— Mark Twain
