It has been eight months since my last post here - and for that, I am sorry.On the banks of the Hiwassee River in the Hiwassee Ocoee State Park in Polk County, Tennessee.

With the London 2012 Olympic Games coming up, I feel that I need to keep up with this blog.

A few sneak peaks at some posts that will be coming in the next few weeks.

- Gear guide - getting started

- London 2012 (planning international coverage out of a backpack)

- Football preview

- Five Years and Counting (My career in journalism hits 5)

I hope this renewed energy will continue throughout an insane rest of the year.
