A friend invited me to go to a Pig Pickin’. Yup. I didn’t ask too many questions about what this was exactly, I just agreed to go and figured whatever happens… happens. Every once in a while, you just need to try something different and not worry about it, so that’s what I did.
Turns out that it was a gathering of a bunch of folks down by a creek at a farm in a remote mountain area. There was a really long picnic table with tons of food and some “whole pork” had been cooking since 4:00 that morning. Our hosts offered hay rides around the property along with a scavenger hunt and other games for kids.
I have to say, this was one of the more relaxing activities I’ve done in a while and I’m glad I went. I ended up running into someone I knew and meeting some really interesting folks on the hayride. If you ever get invited to a Pig Pickin’, you should go. See what it’s like. 🙂
