I am an outdoor enthusiast and have been since my childhood. I live in East TN, just minutes away from the Citico Wilderness. I am also near several lakes and rivers. I have spent as much time as possible outdoors my entire life. Any 'me-time' I get is spent hiking, camping, canoeing, wakeboarding, and ripping up the trails in my 4wheel drive or dirt bike. Most of my outdoor exploits are here in East TN. I am very familiar with the surrounding mountains from the Smokies to the Ocoee area. My favorite remains the Joyce Kilmer-Slickrock/Citico areas.
