Adventure Club

What is Adventure Club?

Adventure club is when we do awesome, fun things and call it adventure club. It started, for me at least, last summer, when I finally decided to get over my fear of biking and started taking my pretty vintage Schwinn I inherited out on the town.

(From Stuff White People Like. White women have a lot of fantasies about idealized lives, and one of them is living in Europe and riding around an old city on one of these bikes. They dream about waking up and riding to a little cafe, then visiting bakeries and cheese shops and finally riding home to prepare a fancy meal for their friends who will all eat under a canopy with white Christmas lights.)

While the Artist is busy road-tripping across the U.S., the other #1 Big Hurry fan, Precisely, and I decided that an adventure club outing here in the 'burgh was necessary.

It's July, so I can only assume that it is hot and humid all across the country, but it is HOT and HUMID here in Pittsburgh. So our adventure club outing consisted of biking up to Troy Hill where there is a spray park. Which is basically a play-ground consisting of sprinklers.

It also afforded some awesome views of the city.

OH HAI Pittsburgh!!!

The spray park. was. awesome. Seriously so much fun! And FREE! And what else could you possibly want to do in the middle of the day in this heat, then go play in cold water? Exactly. It was perfect.

The best part? Flying back down Troy Hill, still wet and feeling cool for the first time all day, into our great city.

I love it here.
