This is how…


“This is the beginning of a new day. God has given me this day to use as I will. I can waste it or use it for good. What I do today is very important because I am exchanging a day of my life for it. When tomorrow comes, this day will be gone forever, leaving something in its place I have traded for it. I want it to be a gain, not a loss – good not evil. Success, not failure, in order that I shall not regret the price I paid for it.” – Heartsill Wilson

“Enjoy the little things in life, for one day you’ll look back and realize they were big things.” – Robert Brault


Have Goals! Live your life with goals. Cross things off your list, add new things, repeat! I’m an old man with ADHD who is always in chase of his next BHAG (Big, Hairy, Audacious Goal). I might move quickly from topic to topic, but they all interweave together into this thing called life. I only …

I got to mark something off my list that has been on it for many years with our visit to Hiwassee-Ocoee State Park near Reliance, TN. I’ve wanted to float the Hiwassee River and wrote down “Webb Brothers” many years ago. Webb Brothers is a float company that has been in business for many, many …

Farm Safety – Ticks, Poison Ivy, Tractor Tip Overs, Snakes, Spiders, Chainsaws (DeanoFarms: Week 5)

I was proactive on ticks (and my efforts have paid off). I wasn’t on poison ivy (and that stuff made me pay). As I was itching I wondered what other lessons might the farm try to teach me that I haven’t fully assessed. Spiders, snakes, tractor tip over, chain saw accident?!? Hmmm…what else?!?! Deano doesn’t …

I Got Poison Ivy (DeanoFarms: Week 4)

Well, that was fun?!? I’ve never had poison ivy in my life. It hasn’t been from a lack of trying. I honestly believed I wasn’t allergic to it. One of the first lessons the farm taught me is I AM allergic to it. [scratch, itch, scratch] #DeanoFarms

Suter Falls and Horsepound Falls – Collins West Trailhead – Savage Gulf SNA

We spent 4 days in Savage Gulf State Natural Area and my favorite day was when we hiked up to Suter Falls and Horespound Falls. We entered the trail at the Collins West Trailhead and headed towards Suter Falls. The area that Suter Falls is in is absolutely stunning (and massive). It didn’t feel like …
