Today's nepotism is brought to you by The Transcaucasian Trail and two industrious, adventurous former Peace Corp volunteers - Jeff Haack and Paul Stephens. Since their time in the Peace Corp they have been working in GPS mapping. Their plan is to establish a hiking trail from the Black Sea to the Caspian Sea.
|Okay. I 'borrowed' this pic from the fundraising page. Please don't hate me. I am using it for good.|
In their words: "it (the trail) will increase sustainable tourism and bring economic activity to remote areas, it will raise the profile of the protected areas in the region and help ensure their continued conservation, and it will promote the connections between communities, ecosystems, and people, in a place where there is too much focus on the things that divide." And really, who doesn't want to help promote a more sustainable world in which division is only a math term.
Please take the time to check out their Facebook Page: The Transcaucasian Trail
And if you can help please check out their fundraising site: The Transcaucasian Trail
You can also find them on Twitter (@transcaucasiant) and Instagram (@transcaucasiantrail).
|again, totally 'borrowed' from the page but seriously - beautiful!|
Stay Safe Guys and Keep up the Good Work!!
What a great thing to do!ReplyDelete
That photo is gorgeous.
I have to admit, I knew very little about the area until Jeff moved there with the Peace Corp. It is extraordinarily beautiful and looks to have some wonderful paddling and sailing areas!! ;0Delete
So cool that they have the drive and vision to do something like this.Hope they get all the funding they need. Sharing.ReplyDelete
Thanks for the share Beverly! They will greatly appreciate the support!Delete
I so wish I had taken more adventures when I was young - what a wonderful experience!ReplyDelete
I so agree Sharon! These guys have been all over the world and working for good causes. They are amazing - as are their parents for not completely flipping out!! ;)Delete
Amazing! Good luck to the guys! What an ambitious project!ReplyDelete
I agree Mo! I can't imagine the planning and physical labor involved!Delete
The Untouchables were nicknamed after they rejected to take a offer. It was presently when the name Eliot Liness became known to the community in Chicago, illinois. Before that, they were a secret function. Liness and his group of ten men, each chosen for the job, proved helpful from the Transport Developing The Untouchables" roleReplyDelete
Thanks for the info William. But I am pretty sure the guy in charge was named Elliot Ness. Unless Liness was his secret code name...in which case we are both in huge trouble!Delete
The right way realized legal issues regarding source and require functions similar to a couple scissors. Just about every cutting tool with the scissors are generally related and must interact for your law to be effective. Retaining wall Road will not respect legal issues regarding source and require being a set of two scissors. That considers regarding require as being a faucet and h2o as the source which runs with the faucet. On this design, source is the always- obedient slave regarding require. It flows to the CaspianReplyDelete
Thank you for your consideration Mr. Hussain. I feel I can assure you that these two men are not politically motivated in any way other than allowing a way for others to view the spectacular scenery of these beautiful countries. And perhaps, in that way, bring cultures together in a respectful manner.Delete
