Who Cut The Cheese

This week, I had the opportunity to visit some acreage north of Lake Hartwell in Walhalla with prospective buyers.  I learned that this area has some fascinating history.  In the 1850's, the Blue Ridge Railway proposed a connecting route from Anderson, SC to Knoxville, TN going through the Blue Ridge Mountains.  One of the tunnels was to pass through Stumphouse Mountain.  After excavating about 1/3 of the 5800' tunnel at a cost of over a million dollars, construction was halted.  The partial tunnel remained unused until nearly a century later when Clemson University found that the constant 50 degree temperature was perfect for curing blue cheese, and Clemson's Stumphouse Blue Cheese  was born. Operations have now moved on campus, but the cheese is still highly regarded.  Now the Stumphouse Tunnel is a state park and with the Issaqueena Falls practically adjacent, it makes a great destination for a day trip.  If you can't make it up, click here for a short video tour of the tunnel.

No Turkeys Here

I am excited to be celebrating Thanksgiving this week with my extended family, and one lucky turkey will certainly be a part of that celebration.  But today, I want to take the opportunity to celebrate something else.   Over 600 of these weekly lake updates have gone out over the last 12 years.  I have the responsibility of coming up with a topic, but our small but powerful team, including Janet, our Client Services Manager, and my son Michael, our Buyer Specialist, are both integral in constructing, proofing and sending the note.  Because of the care our team takes with this note, our click-through rate is more than three times the industry average.   I am thankful for my team for their diligence, and if you have read this far, I am thankful to your for being a part of our success.   Let us know if there is anything we can do to make this note more meaningful to you.  Happy Thanksgiving!
