Go places. Do things.
That’s the tagline of the Weekend Tee Co. and I couldn’t more in love with it. A weekend lifestyle isn’t just about weekends. It’s about exploring, wandering, visiting new places, accomplishing goals, getting things done, and seizing the day. Since I’m a nomad (current location: Kentucky) this means getting out of the hotel and blazing a new trail or trying a local restaurant; visiting a museum, or going for a walk. It’s not always about grand adventures (although those are amazing too.) Living a weekend lifestyle is as simple as going places and doing things.
Weekend Tee Co. was kind enough to send me one of their insanely soft shirts to wear on my nomadic travels. On a summer Saturday a couple of weekends ago, my Weekend Tee was the perfect companion for our hike in the Red River Gorge.
Weekend Tee Co. prides themselves in making Responsible Tee Shirts that are Made in the USA. Since I purpose to only purchase clothing that was made ethically (or that’s secondhand) that was all I needed to get fully on board with this company’s mission and purpose.
We know our tees cost a little more than the big box stores, but you can also feel good about the fact that our tee’s feature: eco-manufacturing (nearly no waste for land fills), paper-less & solar-powered facilities (yay for trees!), and 100% NO sweat shop. Our screen printed inks are water-based and applied by a human hand – craftsmanship at its best. All shirts are made in the USA. Weekend Tee Co. | About Us
My Weekend Tee is, by far, the comfiest shirt I own and I was so excited to be able to wear in on our latest hike to Natural Bridge in the Red River Gorge. The Red River Gorge Geological Area is located inside Daniel Boone National Forest and is characterized by lush greenery, fascinating rock formations, and towering sandstone arches. We hiked roughly 3.25 miles up to Natural Bridge via Hood’s Branch Trail and then about 2 miles back down via the Rock Garden Trail. It was humid and 91 degrees fahrenheit and even though we were hot and sweaty, the beauty of the hike and the wonder of the Natural Bridge made the sticky trek worth it.
“One way to get the most out of life is to look upon it as an adventure.”
Hood’s Branch Trail must not be one of the more popular ways to get to Natural Bridge because we only saw a couple of people on our way and it was overgrown and several places were difficult to pass.
Wandering outside… Going places… Doing things… There’s not much else that makes me feel more alive and like I’m actually living.
We finally made it to Natural Bridge and sat on a rock to eat as we waited for the crowds to dissipate before heading up and passing through Fat Man’s Squeeze.
Our hike in the Red River Gorge was just another reminder to pursue adventure and live intentionally. Go places. Do things. Wear tee shirts. It’s a simple recipe for a spectacular life.
It’s almost the weekend!
