About Me My wife and I live on the outskirts of Washington DC. Yes I do think about atom bombs on a daily basis. When we are not toiling away at our day jobs we're hiking all 500 miles in SNP. We are planing to write a guide on trails and backcountry camping in the park (I won't tell where we work but I'll give you a hint triple venti 2 pump rasberry, one half splenda, no whip, extra thick foam white mocha)
