Power Snatch Workout at Rising Tide Fitness

We continue our year of getting fit with another Crossfit workout. This time it is Power plus Amanda. We are going on 4 months of regular workouts and we are both feeling much stronger.

Aurora loves it! And it is good father/daughter time!

First we worked on Power Snatch technique. Then went into the workout.

Power Plus Amanda

Each Round consists of the following

Power Snatches

Burpees

Jumping Pull-ups

1st Round 11 Reps

2nd Round 9 Reps

3rd Round 7 Reps

4th Round 5 Reps

The second two moves are scaled because neither of us have our bar over pull-ups, yet.

Thanks to https://bensound.com for the music.

Ep 22 The 12 Days of Christmas Crossfit

As we travel sometimes we don't have a mountain to climb or a beach to walk and staying in shape during the holidays is important. This year we tried something new, CrossFit. As we travel we come across gyms all across the country offering the CrossFit style workout and it looked interesting. So we gave it two solid month and it has been a blast!!

On special occasions, CrossFit Gyms have special workouts and Christmas Eve is one of those days. The 12 Days of Christmas, Crossfit Style. No matter what skill level all you need to compete is effort. The coaches will scale the workout to challenge you and keep you moving. Aurora and I had a blast. It was a great gift to give ourselves on Christmas Eve, the gift of health.

Merry Christmas

Ep20 Aurora Around America - Palo Duro Canyon Texas

A quick stop in Amarillo, TX isn't complete without a drive through Palo Duro Canyon, The Texas Grand Canyon. It was a beautiful day and we had an amazing time. We wished the History Of Texas was showing but sometimes things don't work out.

Throw Back to June 2019

We had visited many Indian ruins in the west but none as complete or interesting as these. The Alcove Trail at Bandelier National Monument provides many opportunities to explore the petroglyphs, niches, and ruins. Climbing ladders, rock stairs and trails built thousands of years ago submerged us into the history of the people who used to live here. It was an amazing experience. #rvamericandream #explore #findyourpark #NPS #juniorrangersNPS

Buffalo Close Encounter Custer State Park

RvAmericanDream YouTube Channel

Surprises abound at Custer State Park in South Dakota!! We have been looking for the buffalo for two weeks and finally they showed up and took over. The rules are clear, do not approach the buffalo, but if the buffalo are all over the road and the ranger is asking you to drive through them then getting close is expected. We took some great video. And my daughter learned a little about holding the phone in landscape mode when recording. Enjoy!! We have more great videos on the way!!

Aurora Around America Ep. 17

We spent some time in the Fort Myers / Punta Gorda area of Florida over the winter. Aurora wanted to try something new and we found a great beginners quilting class at the White Daisy Quilting Shop. It was a brand new business to the area and Cheryl was excited to take Aurora on as a student. I have posted a link to the Quilt shop and class Aurora took.

Life changes and we have been spending a longer time in the same place. With all of us busy during the day it is nice to find a quick get away for a couple of hours. Soco Falls and Waterrock Knob are two hikes within 30 minutes of our campground. Both are great for their own reasons.

Summer cools fast in the mountains and we wanted to get one more swimming day in before the cooler temps. Sliding Rock and Looking Glass Waterfall in the Blue Ridge Mountains on the Pisgah Highway would provide a great end to summer.

We have been on other natural waterslides in PA
