My name is Jon Sokol. I’m a forester living in Metro Atlanta 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.
