Subject: RE: BS: Women In The Outdoors
Went kayaking on the south fork of the New River this week! We used to spend the winters in the Florida Keys and have done extensive kayaking and camping on mangrove keys in Florida Bay and also along the coast of North Carolina. Have gotten caught in some fierce storms in both places where we weren't sure we were going to survive (but obviously, did.) I spend most of my time at home in the garden. Have done more primitive camping than I care to remember--hubby burned me out on it to the point I don't enjoy it anymore--give me a cabin with a hot tub on the back porch!

Have also spent a lot of time wildcrafting medicinal herbs, and enjoy gathering and preparing wild edible plants.

I'm older, fatter and creakier now so am not as likely to engage in strenuous hiking or kayaking, but still prefer to be out in nature as much as possible.
