We did it! We fit everything we need to live for eight months in the back of a truck to haul across the country to the Blue Ridge Outdoors headquarters to meet our new home, Live Outside and Play Van (yet to be named). Among our adventure gear, I’ve hidden logic puzzles, homemade sunscreen, and a color changing LED light string, I think we’re set. After we swing by the BRO headquarters, we make way for our first festival, Tallulah Fest!

With only five¬†opportunities to dip and dive through the currents of Tallulah River this year, missing this rowdy party and classic rapid run would be a grave mistake. Come join us at Tallulah Fest on April 1st, for boats, brews, bluegrass, and boogying. Emphasis on the boogying, especially by Ben. Boaters from all over come to play in the fresh currents, as well as camp, hike, and celebrate general merriment. There’s even a film festival for the more cultured among us. It will be our first festival of the Live Outside and Play 2017 tour, and Tallulah Fest’s last year (for now), so we need to make it the best year.

This is a perfect opportunity to meet us in person and find out what Roxy’s favorite animal is. Stop by our tent, say howdy (it is Georgia after all), and ask us how we managed to fit our entire lives in a van, plus a guitar and a didgeridoo.

Once you’ve enjoyed the four B’s of Tallulah Fest, come back to the Live Outside and Play tent Sunday morning (April 2nd) to partake in a¬†Chattooga River clean up. We will be meeting at 10AM to make the world a better place, one piece of litter at a time. We will caravan to the parking lot at the Bull Sluice rapid on the Chattooga and clean up between the US-76 bridge and the flowing Chattooga. As an added bonus, we will have giveaways from our sponsors, as well as dad jokes, and impromptu didgeridoo performances.

Don’t forget to follow us on Facebook or Instagram to see when we will be close by!
