I have three wonderful children; Christie, John and Alysa.  Christie graduated from Oklahoma State Univ.
and now lives in Connecticut.  John graduated from Georgia State Univ. and lives and works in GA.  Alysa
is still pursuing her degree and has moved to Idaho. Christie is in the computer business; John is in
marketing; Alysa is a student.
 Angela's great children are Clint, Matthew and Erica.  Clint works and lives
in Nashville, Matthew is in the Navy and works in nuclear engineering and Erica is a stay at home mom
with her two daughters.

Angela and I have been together about 1
3 years and married in March 2019.  We are loving life as we
travel together workcamping along the way.  In 2017 we s
tarted our dream of hiking sections of the
Appalachian Trail.

Our home is Nashville but we are retired and now working as a campground host to support our camping
Both of us really enjoy getting back out in the woods.  Tennessee is a beautiful state and we love
calling it our home

A few of my hobbies include camping, wood carving, geocaching, hiking/backpacking and tying paracord
items.  I've always been big in computers and self taught myself basic Android programming and wrote a
few simple apps for my tablet. A few computer/console games I enjoy are World of Warcraft, Hearthstone,
Minecraft and most of the Grand Theft Auto series.  When I take time to read, my favorite authors are Tom
Clancy, John Grisham and James Patterson.

Angela is all about crafts.  She loves quilting, sewing, painting and like me, World of Warcraft and
Minecraft.  And with her embroidery machine, she loves making personalized gifts for friends and family.

We enjoy the peace and quiet nature has to offer.  This country of ours is so large and beautiful and there
is so much to see and savor.
A little more about me

I was introduced to camping when I lived in Wichita Falls, TX
during the 6th grade.  My parents talked me into joining
scouting and I had a blast.  I was lucky enough to have an
exceptional troop leader that cared about our advancement.
My father got wrapped up in the troop as well and we would go
on any camping trip that was planned. I still have an axe that  
was awarded to me from that troop.
About Me
My father was in the Marines and my mother was a good ole
country girl from middle Tennessee. I have one sister, thank
goodness, that lives in Massachusetts, but I don't hold that
against her (yeah, not much).  We moved many times and
lived in Tennessee, Texas, North Carolina, California and
Hawaii.  I joined the Air Force after having way too much fun in
college.  Served 22 years and lived in Lousiana, Florida,
Oklahoma, Hawaii and England. When I retired from the Air
Force I moved to Dallas, TX and lived there for 8 years before
heading back home to Nashville.
