A Newbie's Adventures at GAOS: Take a Load Off!

My first time at the Great American Outdoor Show was definitely an experience. There is so much to see and so many people that you honestly feel a little overwhelmed. So if you find yourself feeling a little drained, why not take a load off? There are many choices to choose from to get off your feet like attending a seminar, watching one of the competitions, just finding a place to sit to go through all those pamphlets you grabbed...or to sit and eat that mouthwatering pretzel you were trying to juggle with all those papers. The perfect place I found was an atrium area upstairs where there were rocking chairs to sit in.

After all, your puppies might start barking at you if you don’t take a break or you aren’t wearing comfortable shoes. Plus for those mothers out there, I’m sure pushing around a stroller does take its toll. But no matter your reason for taking a break it’s a perfect chance to make a plan of action of what you’d like to tackle next once you’ve been rejuvenated. If that doesn't work, I suggest doing what these t-shirts say. You’re sure to be energized after that!
