Southern Living...

To all of you who have found your way to this blog as a result of the Southern Living article of August 08...Welcome!

This is an occasional blog kept by me, Andy Nichols, the director of Programs for both Teamlink and Shenandoah Mountain Guides. It reflects on some of the stuff we're doing, have done and are looking forward to doing.

On the left side margin you'll see a few links to other blogs, Blue Ridger, kept by Jesse VonFange, a friend and fellow native Rappahannock Countian (he has AWESOME imagery), Shenandoah Mountain Guides, maintained by Chad, one of our full time guides (another native R.C.), Teamlink, which is VERY occasional and addresses the corporate and school part of our programming. There are also links to two websites: of course one is ours, Teamlink/SMG, and the other is to a kindred spirit, Whitegrass... also living and working immersed in the mountains and all they bring. (on our website there is a more comprehensive list of links to partners, friends and associates... working with them makes us who we are)

As I write this, we're in the heart of our summer.. which means we have staff all over the place, except in the office. We're working in (eastern) WV, (western) MD, (northwestern)VA and (southwestern)PA.. in the mountains and on the rivers.. wherever, you can bet we're having a pretty good time.

To contact us you can try our office phone, or better, try e-mail through our website.

We're looking forward to hearing from you.

Pondering the wonders of Red Creek

A trip to that corner of our high country world brought out the "ahhs " and "oohs".. and then
we got down to serious jumpin' and swimmin'..

Unbearably Busy

As it should be this time of year.. our days start about 0500 and end sometime just before midnight. (Time spent on) the rocks and ridges of the Potomac Highlands, on (and in) the highland creeks and rivers, and in the waterfalls of our local Blue Ridge .. is a mighty nice place to punch the clock.. and you should see the corner office!
Will write more when the dust settles a bit... until then well, we'll see you in the hills!
We'll have a ton of imagery to upload as well!

BTW... and FWIW... (cool abbrevs huh?.. next thing I'll be texting.. oh yeah, for that I need a cell phone with reception..)
Jeremy is on a month long break for a backpack tour of Iceland.. and Chad and some of our other friends are out in Washington doing a self guided ascent of Rainier...
Who needs all that when I have fresh huckleberries from.. places... near the "office" ??
