Summer is here and a great time to enjoy everything Metro Atlanta has to offer. If that’s not enough, then travel in any direction outside the city and you can take your pick of mountains, trails, lakes, parks and so much more!  My favorite pastime is hiking and outdoor music festivals.  Later this month is the Atlanta Jazz Festival in Piedmont Park.  I love relaxing under the stars as the melodic tunes fill the air.  It doesn’t hurt to have a cool beverage in my hand and good company to share the experience.  Relaxing and reconnecting always recharges my batteries. read more

Boats, Motorcycles and RVs—Warm Weather Fun!

Spring is officially here! It’s time to pack away the winter gear and head for the great outdoors.  For me, it’s my time to hit the trails.  In Georgia, we are blessed to have the southern terminus of the Appalachian Trail an hour from my home.  Ten miles south is Kennesaw Mountain which is my mid-week hike of choice.  A little further south is Stone Mountain with its famous granite rock.  The options are endless all over of the state.  When I am not on the trail, I love to kayak on Lake Allatoona or the Chestatee River up north.  Whatever has your passion, a “Get Ready” list will keep you safe and hassle free when you are ready for warm weather fun!  Here are a few tips if love the outdoors as much as I do: read more
