Stone Mountain Park (near Atlanta Georgia)…Climbing Stone Mountain!

We started our Spring Break with snow and freezing temperatures. We were supposed to tent camp at Stone Mountain Park (near Atlanta, Georgia) but we canceled that and opted for indoors (and heat).

YouTube Famous – Recognized In The Wild!

The day I created my YouTube channel I told Emily “one day we’ll be walking around and people will recognize us”. She looked at me with a very common look I’ve seen many times over the years we’ve been married. Many, many hair-brained schemes later I know the look very well. It is kind of …
