The Shoestring Catch

It’s not what you know it’s who you know

Trips like this are not possible without people like John Allen. John is a friend of ours from the University of Texas, but he was raised in Atlanta, Georgia and his family still lives there. He happened to be back at home in Georgia this week and graciously offered up his house as a place for us to crash tonight. Free/cheap places to stay are high on our priority list, so of course we accepted his offer. We would have been happy with any kind of accommodation he could have provided, but John went so far above and beyond the call of duty that it merits special mention.  When we arrived at his home around 10:15PM he had hamburgers waiting for us. They were home-cooked, half-pound monstrosities topped with sauteed mushrooms, avocados, lettuce, and onions. Simply delicious. After we had eaten our fill, John took us to a local tavern and introduced us to beers from all three of Atlanta’s local/regional craft breweries. To top it all off, he insisted on paying for all of our beers. It was Southern Hospitality at it’s very best, and I hope that I can repay John with similar hospitality in the near future.
