June 2014: We headed to southern France to the Provence region for some relaxation and to tour the lavender and olive fields. Our good friend Tanja joined us and she is now fully aware that she doesn't want kids. The house we rented was pretty amazing and we spent about half of the time just hanging out. If we managed to get up and out of the house we visited some cool little towns and the smell of lavender hung in the air almost everywhere!

May 2014: We headed to Berlin for a long weekend city break. We hit the main sites and generally enjoyed the city and managing the kids was ok. We did a lot of walking around and not much going into places. The weather cooperated and we had a great time. Berlin was out "last" major European city we wanted to hit before moving back. It had been on our list for awhile and it didn't disappoint. On the drive back home we also stopped in Leipzig for a few hours.

April 2014: We headed to Rome for a long weekend with the kids. We had been there for a few hours way back in 2001 and had been on our "re-do" list for some time. The weather was beautiful and the kiddos were mostly behaved, which made for a nice trip. We got to see many of the normal highlights so check out our trip diary below.

Dec/Jan 2013-14: Erynn and I took the kids on an adventure of a lifetime. For 10 days over New Years we travelled to Israel and then onto Athens. In Israel we stayed a few days in Jerusalem before heading up the Sea of Galilee area for a couple more days. From Tel Aviv we flew into Athens for a long weekend where we saw the marbles, as our host Costas liked to say. It's just too bad the kids won't remember any of it.

December 2013: We left Greta with the grandparents who were visiting us in Germany and drove to Bolesławiec, Poland with our friend Sabine for some pottery shopping. It was a bit of a whirlwind trip, but the girls were able to buy a bunch of stuff and Doug walked around the city center snapping some photos. The town is famous for pottery and caters to German and American tourists, and it was about a five and a half hour drive for us from Mannheim. We stayed overnight in a great B&B and generally had a nice weekend. Check it out for yourself!

Dec, 2011: Erynn, Greta & Doug headed to Istanbul and Dubai for a 10-day adventure! Both places have been on our list to visit for years and we hit them both in one shot. In Istanbul we stayed in the old city and visited a number of mosques and palaces. While in Dubai we visited the older parts of town around Dubai Creek and shopped. Lots of shopping. In both places it was still a touch too cold to really enjoy everything, but we were able to do just enough and had a great time!

Aug/Sept, 2011: Erynn, Greta & Doug embarked on a driving tour of the northern Adriatic, Istrian Peninsula, and bits of Slovenia. The purpose of the trip was to watch the World Rowing Championships in Bled, Slovenia. We had planned on attending the event when it was annouced in 2007. However, as fate would have it we moved to Germany a few months before and we able to drive there and see a bunch of the area.

November 14, 2009: Erynn and I both competed in the Head of the South Regatta in Augusta, Georgia. This was her first ever time racing the single. She didn't have anyone in her race so she got a gold medal! Doug was in the master 1x and took third of six. Doug was also in the club quad that broke 17 minutes for the 5,000 meter course and took gold (only entrant). Erynn coxed a Raleigh Rowing Center master women's four to a gold medal in their event with a handful of entrants. All in all, the day was great -- beautiful sunny weather in the 70's and four medals!

November 8, 2009: For our wedding anniversary, Erynn and I headed back to Tennessee for some fly fishing. We went out with Randy from Troutfishers Guide Service for a day on the Upper Watauga River. The weather started out cool and the fish were biting. Later in the day the weather got warmer, the sun came out and the fish were a bit tougher to catch. But we had a great day and Randy is a great guide. Erynn caught all of the photo-worthy fish -- all rainbow trout as the brownies proved elusive.

August, 2009: Erynn & I relocated back to North Carolina. Doug got transferred to Deere's factory in Fuquay-Varina, NC and Erynn got her job back at Duke University Medical Center. We were in Tennessee less than a year, but we fell in love with the area and the people. Hopefully, we'll be back soon, but for the mean time we're back in the Containment Area for Relocated Yankees.

July 25, 2009: Erynn & I drove to Damascus, Virginia to bike down the Virginia Creeper Trail. We rented bikes from Adventure Damascus and they drive you to the top of the Mount Rogers. You then set out on a leisurely ride down the mountain following the path of the old Virginia Creeper train. The path is a nice crushed stone and the grade is not very steep since at one time a train had to climb the grade. Damascus is a hub on the Appalachian Trail (AT) with many people stopping overnight on their hike. The AT also runs along the Creeper Trail for a spell. All in all, the day was very nice. We stopped for some ice cream and then stopped by the local fly fishing shop. We then went to Abingdon, VA for a craft fair.

July 2, 2009: Our friends from England, Jackie and Jas, were in Tennessee visiting family so we all decided to hang out at Dollywood in Pidgeon Forge, TN. They brought their daughter, Anika, and some cousins to enjoy the nice weather and fun rides. Jas and Doug made a b-line for the roller coasters (not great for the stomach BTW) and Erynn, Jackie and the kids rode the munchkin rides. All-in-all it was a fantastic day. The next day we headed to Jackie's extended family's lake house for some fun on the water. However, we didn't take any photos.

June 27-29, 2009: Doug's parents came down to visit, and we took his dad fly fishing three days in a row. We hit four places over the weekend: the South Holston River tail waters, Hampton Creek for brook trout, Doe River and did a float trip on Watauga River. On two of the days we had Randy Ratliff of Troutfishers Guide Service with us as a guide. He's a very good guide and we used him on our trip to Blowing Rock, NC.

Above is Doug's dad landing a nice rainbow trout on the South Holston. Below is the brook trout he caught in Hampton Creek. It was a great weekend of fishing with him catching the Trout Trifecta: brook, brown and rainbow trout. You can check out more photos from the fishing HERE.

June 22, 2009: I finally upgraded the center console in the Elise! It's an upgrade I've been wanting to do for quite some time. I bought a carbon fibre center console from Sector 111, which is a specialty after market supplier for Lotus cars in the US. The stock Elise comes with a rather drab looking gray plastic console. The carbon fibre certainly spruces up the interior! The project took about 1.5 hours. You can check out more photos of the step-by-step installation HERE.

June 20, 2009: Erynn and I went fishing with our friend Carl again, but this time we went to Beaverdam Creek in the Cherokee National Forest. The fishing creek runs between Shady Valley, TN and Damascus, VA. Our first stop was at Backbone Rock and then after a few hours we went back Route 133 toward Shady Valley and fished near another bridge. Both spots provided very easy access to the creek, but didn't yield many fish. In fact, the only thing we caught were a couple creek chubs. After a morning of fishing, Carl took us to Damascus to discuss the Creeper Trail and then onto Abingdon, VA before heading home. You can check out more photos from the trip HERE.

June 14, 2009: Erynn and I took the dogs and drove to the Cumberland Gap National Historic Park about 1.5 hours from our house. It was a beautiful sun-shiny day so we decided to get out of the house. The Cumberland Gap was an important east-west corridor from the late 1700's to early 1800's. We stopped off at the visitor center first then headed to the Pinnacle Overlook for a view of Tennessee, Kentucky and Virginia. The three states intersect just on the other side of the Gap from the Pinnacle Overlook -- we decided not to hike to the three-state monument since it was so hot and humid. Really, we were just looking out for the dogs.

As we walked to the overlook, the dogs did their usual stop at every tree routine. If you've ever met Cupcake you know she was born with a defect in her hind legs. As a result she doesn't jump much or stand on her hind legs. As we approached the stone wall and metal railing for the overlook, Cupcake decided she wanted to have a look of her own. She tried to jump up onto it! Erynn shrieked and gave a yank on her leash pulled her back. I then proceeded to put Buckley on the edge and Erynn snapped the best photo of the trip (above) with the Cumberland Gap in the background. You can check out more photos from the trip HERE.

June 7, 2009: Erynn and I went fishing with our friend Carl at the South Holston Dam in Bristol, Tennessee. It was a gorgeous day and both Erynn and Carl caught some trout.

May 16, 2009: We bought a brand new Peinert X25 for Erynn. I've been rowing on Patrick Henry Lake in the Warrior's Path State Park for a couple months now. But this was Erynn's first outing and the first time she's had her own shell. It was built for her size and weight and she picked out the periwinkle color. There's no rowing club in the area so we wade in at one of the lake's boat ramps. I don't imagine that the locals are accustomed to rowers so we wear the hunter orange hats so people with 20 foot boats and 500hp motors are able to see us as they scream down the lake. You can check out more photos from her first outing HERE. You can also see photos of when the boat was delivered the day before HERE.

May 10, 2009: Doug's parents drove down to visit for a week. We didn't have much planned and mostly just hung out. Erynn and I both had to work so during the day my folks saw the local sites and helped with some yard work. You can check out more photos from their visit HERE.

April 11-12, 2009: We decided to spend the weekend in Chattanooga, Tennessee for Easter. We had heard the town and area were beautiful so we decided to take a look. Aside from checking out some cool restaurants and walking around town, Doug wanted to visit the local national parks and rowing club. We visited the Russell Cave National Monument about half an hour outside of town in Alabama. Later that evening and the next day we visited the Chickamauga and Chattanooga National Military Park. The photo above is from Point Park, which is part of the Chattanooga section of the military park on Lookout Mountain. We didn't do any of the touristy stuff on the mountain because we had heard Point Park was the way to go, and we think they were right. It was beautiful.

April 5, 2009: For Erynn's birthday we took the dogs and hiked to Rock Creek Falls in the Cherokee National Forest. The parking area for the falls is just outside of the town of Erwin, TN about 20 minutes from our house. The hike was about 2 miles into the mountains to see the falls and was fairly stenous, but the weather was perfect and the dogs had a good time. Well worth it!

March 15, 2009: We came home one afternoon to find our dogs missing. We had installed some wire fencing along the bottom edge of our back fence but they had dug underneath and escaped. This particular fence had been installed before we moved in, and it had a small gap between the bottom edge and the ground. Since the previous wire fence was ineffective, we decided to break out the big guns. We bought a bunch of 1x6 boards and nailed them horizontally along the bottom of the fence with our Hitachi framing nailer. Then we used the previous wire fence along the bottom edge of the 1x6 attached with our Hitachi pneumatic stapler. We bent the wire fence in a 90 degree angle so it stuck down into the ground another six inches and then out into the yard about six inches. This means the dogs will now have to start digging about a foot from the fence and dig down about a foot to escape. This required us to excavate a trench about a foot deep and a foot wide for nearly 125 feet. We figure that if they can get out this time then they deserve to be free.

March 7, 2009: I replaced the old stainless steel kitchen sink with some higher end equipment. Erynn chose the FrankUSA faux granite sink with an Insinkerator Evolution Excel garbage disposal and a Delta Talbott style fawcett. The new stuff fits a bit more with the house's decor and is a bit higher end. It only took about five trips to Lowe's to get all of the right plumbing pieces.

February 21, 2009: Erynn and I installed some lattice under our deck. The project was partly to make the deck look better, but mostly to keep the dogs from disappearing for hours upon end and then coming back covered in clay.

February 15, 2009: Erynn and I took the dogs for a short hike to Red Fork Falls. The falls are located in Unicoi County about 20 minutes from our house. Erynn had attempted the climb down to the bottom a couple days before, but with two dogs it proved too difficult. With one dog each, we made it all the way and had a great time. It's a bit strenuous, but Buckley proved to be part mountain goat. Cupcake sat down a couple times on the way back up the mountain to let us know she wasn't too happy. Some more photos of the falls can be found here.

February 9, 2009: A nice gentleman from the Knoxville Ritchie Tractor delivered our new LA135 Special Edition Riding Lawn Tractor today. If you didn't know by now, Doug got a job at the factory that makes the 100 Series in Greeneville, TN. Erynn was home to take delivery and the dealer showed her all of the controls and gave her a nice pink hat. We have a little over half an acre, and this is the first time we've been able to justify a riding mower. So of course we needed to buy the best!

July-August, 2008: I was fortunate enough to get a position at work that will allow us to stay in North Carolina for at least the next year. Summers in NC are hot and there are tons of mosquitoes. Since we'll be staying and Erynn can't stand the bugs we decided to screen in our back patio. I don't like the heat so I just stay inside. It's turning out to be fairly labor intensive since we're cutting the cedar boards then installing them.

June 21-22, 2008: My rowing partner, David, and I competing in the USRowing Southeast Regional Championship in Aiken, South Carolina. The first day was in the pair and the second was in the double. Fortunately, we're faster in the pair so we took home two gold medals on the first day in the Open and Masters A-B category.
