PUTTING THE “WILD” IN WILDERNESS

By | November 20th, 2017|Hikes, Hiking|

Needless to say, being back in the "dog-eat-dog"... "fast-and-furious"... "balls-to-the-wall"... "work-a-day" world, Slipper and I get pretty stoked... excited... and wild about getting back outside. You might say that we are all about PUTTING THE "WILD" IN WILDERNESS! With us both being off work on Sundays, we are "WILD" about getting back into our church... [...]

TOES IN THE WATER… ASS IN THE SAND

By | October 29th, 2017|Family|

This year Slipper and I celebrate our 10 Year Wedding Anniversary and so we want to go somewhere totally different than our daily experience of mountain life to just rest, relax and rejoice in our celebration. We initially planned to revisit St. John (our Honeymoon Destination), but after the devastation from the 2017 Hurricanes, we [...]

RIDE… RIDE… RIDE… LET IT RIDE

By | September 29th, 2017|Family|

When we landed back in Atlanta (after our 6 month and 4 day thru-hike of The Appalachian Trail), Slipper and I suddenly find ourselves immerced in work again (this time with a significant promotion and increased responsibility). While flattering to be courted by several companies, we both knew that our Gold Sponsor: Berkshire Hathaway Home [...]

A GARDEN VIEW

By | June 18th, 2017|Family|

Slipper and I love being outside, and if we only have a short amount of time, we enjoy working in the yard and creating something new. For Father's Day I created a Rock Garden in our front yard to give us A GARDEN VIEW. Pull up a rocking chair on the front porch and enjoy [...]

Slipper and I travel into Milton, Georgia to be a part of an Appalachian Trail Conservancy Event (an event to inform and invite Nature Lovers and Hiking Enthusiasts to be a contributing member of The Appalachian Trail Conservancy). Our plea is simple: HELP CONSERVE! The CEO of The Appalachian Trail Conservancy along with Author, Speaker [...]

A MOUNTAIN FAMILY

By | March 13th, 2017|Family|

Slipper and I are happy and honored to have Slipper's Sister (Cheryl) and Brother-In-Love (Marshall) as A MOUNTAIN FAMILY in our home town! We had the joy of representing them in the purchase of their mountain home at the highest elevation of The First Mountain City of Jasper, GA. After a short while in the [...]

WHENEVER WE CAN

By | February 12th, 2017|Hikes, Hiking|

It has now been 6 months since we have completed out 2016 thru-hike of The Appalachian Trail... we are still in the process of transitioning back into our careers... we desperately miss the trail with all of its wonder... and we are trying to rediscover some sort of hiking routine WHENEVER WE CAN. We are [...]

THE BURGER BUS IN BALLGROUND, GA.

By | January 6th, 2017|Uncategorized|

Not only is the name, location and ambiance of this restaurant outstanding, but the burgers and other meals are outstanding too! Ballground, Georgia is undergoing a face-lift and renovation as a small town with new restaurants and businesses. How small is it? DON'T BLINK! But do take the time to visit and eat at THE [...]

GIVE THANKS

By | November 28th, 2016|Family|

While it is true that we are to GIVE THANKS in all things, this year is special because Slipper's sister has just retired from working 40 years as a nurse. This Thanksgiving Day, Slipper and I travel up to Asheville, North Carolina to share in the celebration of Cheryl's retirement and GIVE THANKS for family. [...]
