Hello, Friends,

It’s not Halloween – – but it’s time for a SWEET Treat!  In this context, we’re serving it up as a Featured Conversation with plenty of local flair and an almost obscene amount of local knowledge!  Ranger Jonah McDonald started his residency in Georgia by walking the entire Appalachian Trail to get here… and has been regaling us with kindness and stories (literally) ever since.  Lace-up those shoes, put on those Aftershokz – – and head out the door.  This is one you’re sure to enjoy!
