Finding the right tree service..

Finding the right tree service in your area may be a daunting task. I know first hand. Just recently we had a very bad storm in our area, leaving our back yard with downed trees, and uprooted large trees everywhere. We were sort of stranded in our home because we woke up and there was a huge tree laying over our driveway.. take a look..


What did I do? Same thing that every human being does now a-days.. shops around for estimates of course..

We started our search on facebook and by word of mouth. This only yielded sub par tree companies in the area. Some of which were not even legit businesses. Some things to make sure of…

  1. They are licensed
    1. dealing with a non licensed tree service may make you liable for any damage that they do when they take the tree out. If they are insured, you should be assured that anything that is damaged will be replaced.

2. They have good reviews. Thats right. The best predictor now-a-days is making sure they have good reviews on google, yelp, etc. The more the better.

3. They aren’t TOO busy. Find a company that will help you out and provide an estimate by the end of the day or the day after. Many tree companies especially the hungry ones who do nice jobs will happily oblige and come out quickly!


Luckily we found a great tree service that not only came out quickly to give us a free quote, they were very reasonably, removed the tree and cleaned up the mess that was made. I am happy we went with Tree Service Scranton. If you ever need a tree guy, go with them!




Getting Stuck in the Mud!

Whats up everyone, it’s been a little while since I posted last. I’m spending a lot of time outdoors and away from my devices. I want to touch base with you about a fun experience I had last night. We are basically making our way through the northeastern mountains, And it is very muddy. This plus the fact that it was around midnight made visibility extremely hard for us. It wasn’t long before we ran ourselves into a ditch and were forced to call a tow truck for help. Luckily, Scranton Towing was there for us even late in the evening. They were able to winch us to their tow truck and pull us out of the mud. The driver was nice and actually told us of some really nice places to visit in the area. We were amazed at all the cool sites to see in Northeastern PA.

Aside from the towing problems, we have been having quite a good time regardless. The weather is cooperating with us and we rarely see a bad day. Its a good thing I have a high quality camera to take some awesome pictures. I will have to post some in the near future.

Anyways. Words of wisdom, try not to drive in the muddy conditions – especially at 2 AM.

Thanks for checking in.


The Alaskan Wilderness

Hi guys I’m back again to talk about one of my adventures. About one year ago I decided to take a trip to Alaska also consider the last frontier. I figured I try my hat at roughing it instead of staying in some sort of luxurious hotel. What many people don’t know about Alaska is that it’s not freezing cold and it’s often comfortable temperatures throughout the year. Because of where it’s located on the map you’re often faced with summer months of full sunshine even as you sleep 24 hours of sunlight shines into your windows. The downside is, during the winter months your face with pretty much complete darkness for the majority of the day. This could be tough to get used to I’m sure but the natives probably do not know anything different. There are many local businesses in Alaska primarily markets selling fresh fish, local camping gear, tree removal service, typical for that area. I will tell you that despite it being very remote, there’s many things to do as this has become quite a Taurus attraction. Whether you want to fish or ski or go on boat rides there’s always something. There’s even night life. I remember getting off the plane and taking in the beauty of the state. The skies are absolutely breathtaking as you can see the northern lights very clearly. The habitat is unbelievable and there is much wildlife throughout the state. A friend of mine and I took this trip together and ended up renting a tent and staying out in the woods overnight to get the real feel for the Alaskan wilderness. This was a little nerve-racking but in the end it was definitely an experience that I never thought I would have. I’m glad I sucked it up. Feel free to check out the pictures below and until next time have a wonderful day.



Fun In New Orleans

Hi everyone I’m back for my first-ever blog. I just returned from an awesome trip in New Orleans Louisiana. You may or may not know that Louisiana especially, New Orleans has so much history. It’s not just about Mardi Gras and how many beads you can collect, generally the people are very very friendly and eager to help a vacationer. Recently they fell on some hard times with all of the flooding that was encountered. Luckily, they rebuilt the surrounding suburbs over the past couple of years and New Orleans shows promise of full recovery. Even one of my good friends who works as a roofing contractor drove down to New Orleans to help with the rebuild. I must say that the food was absolutely delicious. In New Orleans Louisiana all of their fish was fresh caught and the best of the best. Some tourists go to New Orleans for the history but many go for the nightlife. The nights in New Orleans are especially busy during Mardi Gras season. Seems like the streets are flooded with tourists and everyone was looking for fun. It may be a family atmosphere in the afternoon but when the sun goes down things start turning into a crazy fun. I specifically remember barhopping for the majority of the evening from 9 o’clock to four in the morning. We spent much of our time at the dueling piano bar, I think it was called O’Leary’s. At this bar to musicians took turns playing the hardest pieces on stage they would go back-and-forth and the crowd would eventually vote for who had the best piano playing of the night. From there we went to a Nother local bar with a local band. New Orleans is also famous for having the best cover bands possibly in the nation. This band was playing mostly 80s music and was playing a song called Rosanna by Toto. It was such an amazing performance as this was one of my favorite songs. I have never to that they saw the song played life he did a great job. We spent the rest of our night there and actually met the band. It turns out half of the band did this for a living but half the band at other jobs. Insert niche here all in all my trip to New Orleans was not only informational and educational, it was a fun time in the nightlife is absolutely incredible I highly recommend going to New Orleans if you had not been there I plan on returning in the near future. That’s all for now ciao
