Actually I’m pretty sure they’re both back in DC these days. But a few months ago, when my company was looking to hire me, Greg and Caroline Stabler were hiking the Appalachian trail and blogging about it. In doing so they were unwittingly responsible, in part, for me accepting a position at my new job.
During my interview I mentioned I liked to take long sabaticals for travel or to work on my music. “So what if I wanted to take six months off, and say, hike the Appalachian Trail?” I asked. The manager smiled and answered: “Funny you should ask. One of our employees is doing just that.”
After checking out the Stabler’s blog I figured the company and I would be a good match and it’s proven very true so far.
