Mr. Bunker’s Creed

When we first moved to Columbia, South Carolina, people from here told us that it was a city not from where you wanted to be. If you wanted to go to the mountains, you could drive about 2 hours. The beach? Charleston and Myrtle Beach were right next door. The greens around the area was…

Visiting Congaree National Park

A few years back, we visited the Congaree National Park, and I didn’t like it. I wasn’t excited to be walking in the heat of the summer through a mosquito-infested jungle while hardly breathing due to the high humidity. Jason talked so high about how good walking through trails would be and how cool that…

Geocaching at Barnwell State Park

Barnwell State Park was the first place we visited twice in Mr. Bunker. This time we went because of the Geoweekend event. I’ve been meaning to get into geocaching because Jason told me it would be fun and worth exploring. The event seemed like the perfect way to get into it. I reserved our spot…

Aiken, South Carolina in the Making

As expected, we ran into a town that was so cool, we wished we could stay longer. I guess that comes with travelling. On this trip, I realized that without Mr. Bunker, we would’ve never discovered Aiken, SC and all its artistic glory. Being so close to home, we never thought to visit it before….

Camping in Lake Greenwood State Park

Visiting the Lake Greenwood State Park was a lot of fun. The road leading to the state park was a little lonely. If we were traveling at night, it would almost feel like a horror movie if we would have gotten a flat tire. Luckily, we were traveling during the daylight, had no flat tires,…

Visiting Barnwell State Park

Another successful weekend spent outdoors-ish. We went camping at the Barnwell State Park in South Carolina. I chose to try this place out because of the full hookups that they had and the number of trees around it. I also saw that it was located in the middle of nowhere, which meant quiet for Jason….

Riverbanks Zoo and Garden in Columbia, South Carolina

The first week after we got done unpacking in Columbia, I was looking for things to do around the area. I saw that that the Riverbanks Zoo was one of the top ranking attractions in town. The Riverbanks zoo admission also included a garden entry. I figured it would be a good distraction and break…

South Carolina State Fair

For the past year that we’ve lived in Columbia, Jason and I visited a lot of different places during a lot of different times. Although we visited a lot of things during the Summer, I suggest visiting before the Summer. The weather would not be so hot then, and the places would not be as crowded…
