My new side hustle- kayak tours…

My brother recently bought a rental business in Hatteras Village (Slash Creek Outfitters). He rents everything from golf carts to clam rakes. He does a lot of kayak and paddleboard rentals as well, and he asked if I’d like to do nature tours for him.

Kayak Trip to a Secluded Beach

My brother owns an outdoor equipment rental company here on Hatteras Island (kayaks, surfboards, golf carts, etc…).

Backcountry Camping at Sloppy Floyd State Park

State parks are open in my state, so my friend and I went camping. We chose a backcountry campsite at Sloppy Floyd State Park, thinking that would be an easy way to social distance and still be outdoors. We were a bit disappointed by the campsites. There are 4 backcountry campsites situated on a little… Continue reading Backcountry Camping at Sloppy Floyd State Park
