||I live atop a mountain in the southern Appalachians with my husband of 35 years and our two basset hounds. Gary and I have operated our own business on our 8 acres for 30 years - we sell whitewater rafting equipment across North America - it is called MoR River Gear. Gary started the first rafting company on our home river, the Ocoee River, in 1976. We built our own house - doing all the work ourselves as well as building a log building from trees we needed to cut one winter. We have 3 neighbors and are surrounded by The Cherokee National Forest. Our dream was to always work at home and we feel that we have achieved our dream - together! Our life centers around running rivers, and this has taken us to many foreign countries as well as to many incredible National Parks within the US. We spent numerous falls working on the Colorado River through the Grand Canyon. We have made different non - main stream choices throughout our years together and they have all added up to one incredible ride! We are each others best friend!
