If you know Becky McCabe, you know she loves video games, studying, and her cat. As you can tell, being indoors is preferred by Becky.
After receiving her bachelor’s degree Becky packed up from New Jersey to head down to Tennessee for her master’s and doctorate.
In Tennessee Becky studied harder than ever, putting all her focus into school. That is until she met Jessa.
And luckily for Jessa, it was easy to persuade Becky into “taking a hike”.
The two decided to go to Sugar Loaf Mountain in Heber Springs Arkansas.
“Jessa says it was her favorite hike because I went camping for the first time with her. There was some mild rock climbing involved that definitely got the adrenaline up, but it was definitely worth it for the incredible view.”
Camping? Not really something Becky ever thought she’d do. Once a year her family goes to Pennsylvania to spend some time in their cabin, but pitch a tent? Start a fire? Certainly not things that were in her studies.
Somehow, everything worked out. The hike had beautiful views and the camping turned out to be fun. Who would have guessed? (Probably Jessa!)
“We camped at John F. Kennedy Campground, which was beautiful right on the river. We managed to survive camping through a severe thunderstorm with some of the loudest thunder I’ve ever heard. Other than that, the weather was absolutely perfect. All in all, 15 s’mores later, my first camping trip was definitely a success!”
And with that Becky had survived! Plans for future hikes and camping trips are always in the girls’ minds.
