My name is Jon Sokol. I’m a forester and writer living in Northeast Georgia and very happily married to my favorite travel partner, Karen.

Interests other than travel include reading actual books (especially Southern Gothic, History, Philosophy, Sci-fi, Historical Fiction, and classic literature), hunting, fly fishing, backpacking, traditional woodworking, playing guitar, vinyl records, watching baseball (Go Braves), Clemson football, good beer and okay whiskey.
