So, I’ve had an eventful year since I last posted.  I’ve changed jobs, changed states, changed doctors, and taken up a new form of exercise:  Pilates.  It’s funny, because this new job is my first ever real desk job, but I’m in better health than I’ve been in for ages.  So I think now’s a good time to start blogging again.

We’ve made Outside‘s top ten best towns for outdoors activity, and we could be number one! Just head over there to vote (you have to use your Facebook account). You can also help our chances by using the twitter hashtag #OutsideInGville whenever you’re out doing outdoor activities.
