Freg, Buddy, Carolyn, Ant, and Chad hanging out by the Airstream on Buddy’s property. It was fun sitting outside of the retro Airstream and we all sort of felt a bit of Americana nostalgia going on.
Buddy, Carolyn, Ant, and Chad making conversation under the awning of the awesome Airstream. It was a cool evening out in the Boone area.
Ant outside of the Airstream enjoy the hookah and the evening sky ‘like a boss’. We had such a fun evening with our host, Buddy.
We all enjoy a pleasant evening out on Buddy’s back deck with a delicious meal he was gracious enough to prepare for us and his friend Harrison, and Sampson the chicken chasing dog.
Ant, the AMAZING tightrope walker, using his balancing skill to make it up this rather large and stable log.
Ant doing some extreme rock hopping out at Hebron Rock Colony. Look at him ‘whoosh’ through the air!
Ant, Carolyn, and Brenna are all preparing their plates for dinner. The food is hot off the grill or out of the oven and it is time to eat.
Flip flop vs seemingly stable rock in the middle of a muddy area of trail. Ant is going to stop hiking in sandals … or so he says.
Ant looks lonesome as he rests after our hike to the Upper Falls, but indeed he is not alone. Carolyn is hiding out behind the trees.
Ant and Carolyn sit outside Jack Of The Wood enjoying the sights and people watching of downtown Asheville. It was also much less crowded on the streets compared with inside and the evening weather was pleasant.
Ant provides some perspective about the height of this waterfall we were treated to during a hike through the Pisgah National Forest.
Ant and Carolyn looking up at the beautiful waterfall we were taken to on a hike through the Pisgah National Forest. It felt at least ten degrees cooler right by bottom of the waterfall.
Ant checking out the tanks in the back room at Brevard Brewery. This is were the ‘magic’ happens and all the delicious beer you get to enjoy is made.
Ant and Carolyn are ubber focused on eating and enjoying their German fare. The dinner was even more enjoyable with the delightful outdoor weather.
Ant enjoying his 34 ounces of deliciousness at Haus Heidelberg. Beer steins and outside created quite the pleasant evening.
Jenny looks on as Ant has cleaned his dinner plate off. This is only unusual because this evening’s dinner contained grits, which Ant is not a huge fan of. There may come a day where Ant would want to make his own grits; GASP.
Ant’s expression as he tries the grits. Ant spent the first ten years of his life in Chicago so he doesn’t have too much experience eating grits. This evening Jenny prepared shrimp and grits for dinner, Ant seems to approve.
Robert Lord telling one of his infamous stories during dinner on the porch at the home of Robert and Jenny Lord; parents to Those Guys, Rachel. The food and company was quite agreeable that evening.
Ant goes for a behind the back shot during a game of cut throat. After walking around all day we relaxed with a game of pool and some beers at Barley’s Taproom in downtown Greenville.
Ant hugging what is knows as the Washington Oak on Hampton Plantation’s property. This live oak tree was saved by President Washington and is over 200 years old.
Freg has his eye on the line of his ball, Ant watches too. The mini-golf was extremely competitive this afternoon.
Ant’s nearly hole in one. His line was a bit off and the ball curved around the hole. Do not let this picture fool you, mini-golf is hard.
Ant checks to make sure his ball made it through the tunnel at Pirate Adventure’s Mini-Golf.
Ant heads up the stairs from the lower River Street in Savannah. He stopped and made a ‘model like’ pose for Freg. NICE Ant!
Some gentlemen engage in a game of giant chess set out in City Market Square. The visiter’s center holds the pieces but all are welcome to play. Ant and Carolyn observe from a park bench as Ant critiques the moves.
Freg, Sammi, Ant, and Carolyn attempt a ‘Blue Steel’ face… ATTEMPT. It is clear that while we are all ridiculously good looking we are NOT models and do not possess posing skills.
Freg, Sammi, Ant, and Carolyn gather for a group shot in their ‘natural’ poses. How many times did we have to reset the timer, you’ll never know.
Ant gulping down his frozen Texas Margarita. After spending the afternoon lounging by the pool in the Georgia heat this was a refreshing way to start dinner.
Joanie, Ant, Jason, and Scott made up a pretty competitive 21 cup team. This game a is favorite of Those Guys and was introduced to us by our great friend Mike Haase.
Ant and Carolyn stroll along the boardwalk entering into the dense forest of the Okefenokee National Wildlife Refuge. This is before we all started getting attacked and dive bombed by the agressive flies and other insects.
