As the weather gets warmer, our thoughts tend to shift to getting outside after a long winter and tackling those projects that we have been ignoring. While your goal is to get out, we can rest assured it’s not to fix the caulk around the windows, but instead its of camping, hiking, fishing, biking, swimming, or just relaxing in the hammock.
