Biking Along The Silver Comet Trail

Sunday, March 8, I ventured out on a bike ride with two biking friends.  It was the inaugural bike ride for my recent bike purchase of a Specialized Allez (shown left).  It was fantastic!  I got started and it seemed to not take as much time as it did the last time I rode along …

Camping At Three Forks, Part One

A few weekends ago, I went camping with my good friends Joe and Clark. I had not been camping since the hike with Joe along the Appalachian Trail (AT) in 2010. It was wonderful being able to get back into the mountains of North Georgia and breathe that clean air. Our chosen campsite was at …
