You know that I’m having a baby in 5 weeks, but several of my other friends have some life changing events coming up. Jym Davis is getting married next week. Jon Engelman is marrying my sister-in-law in 4 months. Kenny Jensen, my brother-in-law, is moving to the other side of country soon.
With such big changes on the horizon we decided to have a “Boys’ Weekend Out.” So this past July 4th weekend we went to Fontana Lake, tucked away in the Smoky Mountains, for 3 days of camping, hiking, swimming, art, and general insanity. Another college friend Jerry Span now lives at Fontana Village and was our outdoorsman/trail guide for the journey (without him us city boys would have been eaten by wild animals and died from eating poisonous mushrooms).
