Summer 2021 is definitely like no other! Recovering from the pandemic and the civil unrest across the World and the US feels more like an eerie Zombieland kind of a movie. With just a couple of scarce BLM protests in Beacon and Newburgh, racial justice didn’t get much attention in the Hudson Valley. And while economic equality took a major hit this year, billionaires of the World benefited from the largest transfer of wealth (in one year) in the history of humankind. So yeah, there has never been a better time to celebrate something like Pride, Diversity, and Equality. Pride […]

Spring is officially here and I opened the 2020 hiking season in the Hudson Valley with my favorite hike of all times – the Mount Beacon in Beacon, NY. Even though the leaves are not out yet, the weather was nice and sunny, almost 60 degrees outside, so it definitely felt like Spring. I know that ticks are out and about, hunting for unsuspecting hikers when the temperature is above 45 degrees, so I knew for sure that when it’s 60 degrees out, it’s time to carry the best natural tick repellent you can find. It was a bit unexpected to see […]

Hudson Valley Hiking Adventures with Max & Dino Two weeks ago we were running around in t-shirts and celebrating Summer, but not on this beautiful yet crisp Saturday afternoon. Everyone knows that humans are the creatures of habits, but not everyone wants to face the truth. We are trying though! Things are more-less settled after our move to Kingston and we are finally squeezing some time to have actual “normal people’s” weekends when we can do something more laid back and less business-oriented. So, we (mostly I 🙂 ) decided to get in a habit of exploring nearby hiking trails, […]

Enjoying Warm & Sunny Weekend in the Woods? Bugs are now officially out too! Here are a few tips to stay protected while exploring Hudson Valley hiking trails: If hiking or camping in an area known as a tick & mosquito habitat, try to protect yourself, and children in particular, by wearing bright colored, long-sleeved tops and pants, tucking the bottoms of the pant legs into long socks. Apply a generous amount of DA Aromatherapy Collection Natural Insect Repellent Spray, as a deterrent, onto clothing and skin. For best results apply frequently. Inspect the entire body after hiking.

Thanks to Global Warming and the Climate Change, Spring is coming to Hudson Valley earlier this year. Hudson Valley’s wine industry and eco-conscious tourism are booming thanks to this shift in climate. But what is the other side of the equation? The area becomes slightly warmer and proximity to the ocean, rivers, and lakes create perfect humidity and temperature condition for growing wine grapes. At the same time, these conditions are very comfortable for ticks and mosquitos as well. Mosquitos and ticks aren’t just annoying bloodsuckers, they’re also dangerous because of the diseases they carry. To avoid getting bitten, you […]
