The Last Carter County Car Club Cruise In - Down Town Elizabethton - Trunk or Treat

Trunk or treat was amazing. These are photos of Tanner and I from the last Carter County Car Club Cruise In. More photos will be available in the JoePearce.com Gallery soon, and on Facebook. We greatly appreciate those that came to hand out candy and appreciate all of the attendees that brought their families to participate. The Carter County Elizabethton Car Club is a totally charitable organization that fully supports only children's charities to help ensure the children of our community have some help when needed. It is a great group of people helping great causes, doing it for God, the lord being our greatest champion. Praise his name.

It was amazing to see the overall turnout of visitors to the Trunk or Treat event. The weather was cold and rain was coming down, but people still attended. The day had been a bad weather day overall, but people still brought their families so the children could dressup and particiapte in this great event. For some families, this is the only opportunity these children have to trick or treat and feel safe. Also, it is one central place, close by for many, thus this event helps with saving gas and other wear and tear on their vehicles. We were so glad to see the great turn out, and can't wait until next year. See you in the Spring.

Sherri and I had an opportunity to visit Orlando, Florida recently. It was a great trip and the first time we had traveled anywhere since 2015. Photos will be uploaded to the gallery soon, but I will post a couple hear as a teaser. We got the chance to visit Universal Theaters during Halloween Horrors nights, where I rode a roller coaster The Mummy, for the first time since before heart, Sherri rode a couple of others. We didn't get to due the Hulk due to a storm. It was still great fun and I highly recommend that people visit there if when they get a chance.

We love him so much. Keep him in your prayers. Also, keep Haley in your prayers. Tanner's baby sister Sadie will be here soon. Please pray for a health, happy baby, and for a safe, healthy, and happy mamma.

2005 Harley Davidson 1200 Sportster 1200 Custom - Joe Pearce
Here is a photo of a recent new toy. It is a 2005 Harley Davidson Sportster 1200 Custom. A basic bike that does all I need. I have no plans for long rides yet, though Sherri is wanting to do longer rides. I mainly just wanted something to ride around the local mountains and lakes with. I will be getting Sherri one soon now that we have both taken the motorcycle safety class.

Pensacola Beach, Florida

While on a work excursion to Pace, Florida, we were able to stay at a hotel on Pensacola Beach at a lower price than anywhere else in the area, which was amazing. We were right on the beach, walking distance to good food such as 's and Hemingway's, and had one of the best views with direct access to the beach. It was an experience I won't forget and greatly appreciate the opporunity to have.Here is a brief video of the view.

Joe Pearce Garage - More Signs

The garage is slowly coming along thanks to the hard work of Sherri and Haley before Sherri and Tanner's surgeries. I have helped very little due to working so much lately. Many signs have been put up, and other great things continue. The addition of another Craftsman toolbox has helped tremendously in getting my mess of tools in order. I also finally got the tool tracking ordered for the walls, and caulking of the base completed. It will take another run of caulk, but much of the water that was coming in has been reduced. The tool tracking may require some changes of signage, but that is yet to be seen. More photos soon.

Laurel Ford Falls July 3rd 2017
We recently hiked to Laurel Fork Falls, a trek we used to make often, but haven't since my heart surgery. My heart did great that day, but the rest of me was not so well. I was sore for two days afterwards. I was surprised by the erosion damage we encountered. I was also surprised by the many trail updates that have occurred since our last visit. The Appalachian Trail Society has done a great job in this area keeping the trail up to date. Here are a couple of photos. I will upload more to the gallery soon.
