Another catching up post...
Guys (and Dani),

I've been absent all summer with NDR activities and adventures. Here's a photo tour of what I've been up to:

I spent a week in early June camping at Roan Mountain State Park in Tennessee and trout fishing:




In addition to fly fishing, I started making my own spinners with the Jenn's Netcraft Tackle Tool:




I have a small garden using horse troughs as raised beds. You can plant intensively. Kathy and I have enjoyed a bountiful harvest of tomatoes, cucumbers, and peppers.


I spent a few days catching channel catfish on Jordan Lake and caught enough to have a fish fry for ten guys from our church:


When the heat of summer began to wear us out, Kathy and I spent a few days at a cabin at Roan Mountain State Park. A local young farmer was selling hand sized Cherokee Purple tomatoes for $1 a piece. They would cost $4 at the State Farmers Market in Raleigh. Huge!


We packed up a small picnic and had wine at 6,000 ft one evening. Note the jackets that had not been out of our closet since April.


The Smokies are just wonderful.


Hope you all are well.

Peace,
Larry
