Playing catch-up: Summer and Fall

Whoops, haven’t been doing much blogging!

We finished out our time in Knoxville with a few roadtrips: NC, Chattanooga, and a hike up to the Appalachian Trail.

We made it up to the Trail on our last day in the south.

The drive home was more insanity.

Dave set up his own all-grain system at home. I am trying to get him to do a post about it!

And we got in one camping trip at Rifle River.DSC_0084

We dine on Pear Clafoutis when camping because we are FANCY
