You don’t have to travel far from the city to be rural. In fact, Rural Hill, located in Huntersville, is right in our backyard. Along with Executive Director, Jeff Fissell, we’re going to learn about all the reoccurring events including Sheepdog Trails, Highland Echoes, Loch Norman Scottish Games & more. http://www.ruralhill.net/
Charlotte Stories founder Scott Jensen talks about local, national, international stories that he follows and writes about. If you want to know the states with the biggest people, purple fence paint & railroad rides in North Carolina are all a part of the topic.
We need to let our listeners know about our next guest. He’s the new voice of the Hornets, but he’s not new to this area. He grew up in Matthews, went to Piedmont High & Appalachian State & then went to work covering college teams in the ACC-SEC-Pac 12 & Big East. A few moves around the country & then back to the Carolinas where he graced the hallways of Entercom with WFNZ & was a sideline reporter with the Charlotte Hornets. Next thing, the first voice of the Hornets decides to retire & Chris Kroeger, in his early 30’s, may have his lifetime job. Let’s find out as the Outdoor Guys welcome Chris Kroeger, Voice of the Charlotte Hornets. We’d like to learn about the “new” team, the early season thus far, & the new job. Plus, who is the best “outdoorsman” is on the team.
The Outdoor Guys talk! DC Lucchesi joins in with his views of the 2018 Novant Health Charlotte Marathon. Bill Bartee provides some feedback and appreciation for the locally founded, Learn to Ride Program (www.learntorideclt.com), & other items of interest with the Carolina Outdoors.
Yosemite deaths during a selfie made the Outdoor Guys think about being cautious around waterfalls, cliffs & other beautiful places where pictures are taken. We consider the things we talk about encouraging but don’t let your guard down because wetness, wind guests & unsure footing can quickly make an outing become something deadly.
Toadfish Outfitters is making food preparation products for oysters, shrimps & crabs, but their background as river rats, anglers & surfers, lead them to conservation. The Outdoor Guys speak to founder & president, Casey Davidson, Toadfish Outfitters, about what months are good for oysters & why they are important to the coastal ecosystem.
There is a magazine distributed online & in paper form that acts as an information corridor for places, people & events that are happening in the outdoor active community. The sports go from hiking and biking to fly fishing, climbing & paddling & then some but mainly human powered or Appalachian oriented. So while perusing the November edition, it gave thought to call Editor in Chief, Will Harlan, from Blue Ridge Outdoors magazine to learn more about what the writers and contributors are bringing him in the November edition and maybe a glimpse into the next issue.
What’s a Wild & Scenic River? The Outdoor Guys discuss the labeling of rivers as Wild, Scenic & Recreational. It was 50 years ago that the Congress passed the National Wild & Scenic Rivers System (1968) & there’s a celebration at Wilson Creek National Forest on November 3rd, 2018, from 9 a.m.- 4 p.m.
Novant Health Charlotte Marathon is coming up on November 3rd & replaced the Thunder Road Marathon a few years ago. We’ll learn about this change along with all of the changes that Charlotte has gone through with Race Director, Tim Rhodes. The route, the runners & the community celebration this race brings out.
