I had not seen Rod in many years after getting married and moving to TN. Rod and I camped in North GA almost every weekend for some time. Our record was 10 or 11 straight weekends. Rod lived and counted the hrs till we could head up to N Ga on Friday night. We would stop in Helen and go to Betty’s country store for some homemade pie to take. We even camped in the winter and the coldest was around single digits in the dead of winter. Rod loved Horse Trough Falls if anyone remembers him talking about that area. Sad to hear this news as I just found it by internet search. If someone could email me I would love to hear more about Rod over the last several years. Gary Carruthers email email@example.com

So sad to hear this news. I came across this post as I was trying to find Rod. We had exchanged emails a good while back but I had not heard from him in a while. We were very close friends when I lived in Atlanta in the 90’s. We both lived in Little Five Points and we would share many laughs and stories together. I have fond memories of us making dream catchers, listening to music and camping. He will truly be missed.
