Hey Team,

The last couple days have been a whirlwind of southern hospitality, baseball and inner tubes. Since being in Georgia for the first time ever I’ve already had peach cobbler with dinner twice (both made with California peaches), seen a Braves game and tubed down the Chattahooche River (Yep! Number one is a goner!).

What the hell is an itinerary?!An itinerary?!

I even got to try “sweet tea” for the first time. And let me just say, they need a better name for that stuff. Maybe ” sugar water” or “diabetes tea.” It tastes like the sugar took the tea out back and hit it over the head with a baseball bat before leaving it for dead.

Apparently I made some sort of face when I tasted it and my host, Robin, asked me if the sweet tea was too sweet, “Do you want to add some water to it?”

I thought to myself the whole point of sweet tea is that it’s sweet, right? It’s cheating to change the experience. That’s like a Spanish butcher asking if the bull testicles are too testicle-y and offering you a meatball instead.

The Braves game was intense, not nearly as intimate as Fenway but a totally different experience anyway. It was “fan appreciation day” and the Braves pulled out a late inning victory that sent the crowd into a tomahawk chopping frenzy. Definitely a fun way to spend the day.

And finally there was TUBING DOWN A RIVER! It was a strange change of pace after the way most of this trip has been, especially after hang gliding. In fact it was probably one of the most relaxing experiences I’ve ever had. Unfortunately, with my limited attention span and inability to sit still for longer than it takes to microwave a cup-o-noodle, the two and a half hour trip was a little longer than it needed to be.

But I still have some cool video for the tubing trip that will make an appearance in a few days. AND the hang gliding video is up on iTunes! Check it out!

I’m done.
