I am a big fan of traveling, seeing new places, having variety in my life.
However, by October when I typically get back to Tennessee from 6 months of full-time traveling, I am fired up to be home. Since coming home I have been working hard and fishing hard mostly due to an injured should that is still healing up, but I did finally get out into the awesome whitewater of the Caney Fork River Yesterday with Clay Wright.
Some of the things I miss on the road that I absolutely love here are: The weather… 70’s-80’s and sunny most of the time, lows in the 50’s. The scenery- beautiful landscape, green, lush, and hilly. The people: Nice, warm, fun, and caring.
My house: Much bigger than the RV providing a great place to work, relax, play games with Kristine/KC and when they get home, Emily, Dane, and Nick (and Tucker).
The Fishing: I caught a 10 pound bass two days ago, muskie, smallies, spots, etc.. all right here.
The Foglight Foodhouse Restaurant- Best restaurant I can imagine having .5 miles from my house.
Calfkiller Beer on tap- local brewery, local river good for muskie.
The Factory and staff: Some of the most amazing people on the planet, making the world’s best kayaks, coolers, and other fun stuff.
I am so happy to be home.
Here is a video I made from kayaking yesterday with Clay, set to Tennessee native, Dolly Parton, singing- “Tennessee Mountain Home”.
See you on the River!
