Last weekend we found ourselves catching up on real life adulting. Yard work, house cleaning, and errands galore. But, don't worry, a few of us still managed to get together at Grinders Stonewall for a few drinks on the patio. Since we didn't Adventure out, we thought we would share a little Q&A with the readers!
How did you all meet?
Kristi and Leslie met when Leslie moved from Texas to Kansas City in 2005 and started working for the same company as Kristi. Leslie made Kristi join in on a work happy hour and the rest is history! Kristi said sianara to that job shortly after, but kept in touch with Leslie. When Kristi started her new job, she met Stephanie. They became fast friends and roommates shorty after. Leslie and Steph met through Kristi with Leslie becoming the 3rd roommate at Stephanie's house. The 3 of us lived together about 7 years! Last, but certainly not least, Leslie met Andrea when she started dating her now husband, Bobby. Bobby and Andrea are siblings! You follow me?
How did you come up with your blog name?
Steph and Leslie came up with it. It pays tribute to our love of adventure and our favorite hometown beer, Boulevard Unfiltered Wheat. When they told me their idea for the name, I knew immediately it was perfect for us! Fun Fact - if you ever need someone to come up with a clever team name for you, Stephanie is your person!
What made you guys want to start a blog?
We love Kansas City and love trying new things. So, we thought - why not write about the things we are doing? It is a fun memory book for us and maybe someone else will need ideas or tips on places to go and sights to see around KC. Readers can always check out our Libations Page for our favorite KC recommendations!
What has been your favorite adventure?
I think one of our best adventures was the Dominican Republic. You can read up on the trip here, here, here, here, and here. Told you we had a great time!! If you thought we had fun on this trip, just wait to see what we have in store for you come September!
How do you come up with adventure ideas?
Social media! We scour Facebook and other media outlets to find out what is going on in town. We make a list of ideas and events about month out and try to pick events we find interesting or something we've never done before!
What is your favorite thing about Unfiltered Adventure?
Doing things! It's a good excuse to spend time with some of our favorite people! It gets us out of the house and exploring Kansas City.
What is one thing we all have in common?
Our love for adventure...and wine...and champs...and beer...and traveling...and all the things we write about!
We hope you are enjoying the first part of summer and can't wait to continue sharing adventures with you all!
