Guests from El Salvador

Hanes is building a new sock facility in El Salvador and the management team is up for a few weeks of training and orientation. They needed activities for them to do over the weekend so I volunteered to lead a hike at Pilot Mountain. We all hike around the knob and then enjoyed a picnic of Mountain Fried Chicken (with peach cobbler and homeade ice cream for dessert) Thanks to Go Postal, Whole Wheat and Dairy Queen from the ski club for their help. I think everyone enjoyed the outing...even the two guys who took the strenous route back with Whole Wheat. Their country is beautiful too, they have active volcanos and great places to mountain bike I maybe on my next business trip I can add on a day of vacation and they can show me some of their parks.
As we got ready to leave several deer came right out to the parking lot where an apple tree was dropping treats for them. Their desire for apples was stronger than their fear of us. There were several does, one small buck, and a fawn that still had some white spots.
It was a nice way to spend a Sunday afternoon.
