Hey Campers! It’s Friday, once again, and you know how we like to kick off our weekends, right? Yes, with an introduction to a new Weekend Warrior. This week, we get to know Abby (@agailtaylor), a lover of boating, fishing, and camping. A girl after my own heart. She’s caught a million fish, and has them all perfectly documented by her fiance, Mike (@flyline_productions). Check out their instagrams, and give them a follow! But first, let’s chat with Abby, shall we?
1. Where did your love of the great outdoors come from, and what does it do for you?
I was introduced and entrenched in the great outdoors at a very young age. My parents couldn’t have been less alike in their choice of hobbies except that all took place outside. My dad ate, slept, and breathed hunting and fishing and would, not only keep my brother and I out all day- rain, shine, freezing, or sweltering, but drag us along on overnight excursions where “the bite was on” as well. And my mom was equally as passionate about off-road cycling and made sure all of our family vacations were planned around prime bike trails. I didn’t always appreciate that we spent so much time in the great outdoors when I was living it as a kid, but now I couldn’t be more thankful that that was a part of my childhood, and certain that it shaped my current character.
2. What does weekend warrior mean to you?
A weekend warrior, to me, is someone who works hard so they can play harder- They bank sick time for bluebird pow days and clean winter swells.
3. Where is your next adventure?
Our current adventure is one of the biggest to date- my fiance and I just purchased a new (to us) home which were smack dab in the middle of renovating. Hoping to be finished before a week long ski trip in Mammoth mid February, and definitely before we run off for 2 weeks to the Abaco islands to get married in May.
Thank you so much, Abby, for taking the time to talk to us! Congrats on the engagement and house! And we can’t WAIT to see the pics from your wedding! That’s the biggest adventure of all!
