Bob- originally from Virginia Beach VA, now a plant manager in Martinsville, VA. So from surfing most of my life and living in a metropolitan area, to a town of 15,000 in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mts, and doing some basic woodworking and turkey hunting.

Its been a change for us but its one I’m growing to like a lot. Was getting too old for the big waves in Hawaii anyway, and have one more to get through college!!
