Went on my first hike with them that February, got caught in a nasty blizzard that day on Rabun Bald, was not sure that I was going to survive, but have been hiking with them ever since. Spend a lot of time with our (ten) grandchildren who all live in the Atlanta area. Enjoy entertaining and sampling beverages brewed by slow fermentation process.
