Hello! I'm John Grayson and I hope you enjoy reading of my adventures as much as I enjoy participating in them. I am one of those technology professionals whose interests lie outside of technology. Instead of checking out techie stuff, I check out history, nature, sports, and alcohol. Have Fun!

Back Again! Maybe I'll Keep with it this Time
Ok, it's been about 6 months since I gave an update. I would like to say that I've been too busy, but that's not true. It also wouldn't be true if I said there was nothing to write about. So yes, I have been busy, and some of it might have been interesting if anyone had been interested enough to check up on me.
I'll give a brief history of the last 6 months:
Meet a new girl (Juliana) in early January. Started dating her in the middle of the month. At the end of January went to Copper Mountain, Colorado for a snowboarding vacation.
In February I continued dating Juliana. I also organize a winter sports trip for the Boozehounds to Snowshoe in West Virginia.
March, April, and May passed with me spending my time with Juliana.
I've done a lot of hikes this year. Already been to Maryland Heights near Harpers Ferry, Patapsco State Park near Baltimore, Shenandoah National Park for a 3 waterfall hike, two thirds of the Billy Goat Trail in Great Falls Park, Duncan Knob in the George Washington National Forest, and False Cape State Park near Virginia Beach.
I've also done some reenactments. The first was in Alexandria, Virginia for George Washington's birthday. The second was at Drayton Hall near Charleston, South Carolina for the 225th anniversary of the siege of Charleston in 1780.
