Amanda and her family enjoy camping, hiking and taking advantage of the outdoors whenever possible. In fact, she hiked the 27-mile trail around Lake Georgetown in one day when her now-husband proposed to her at the 16.6-mile marker – a memorable journey! Amanda’s dream vacation is anywhere she can see undisturbed nature from the porch, drink her coffee, and no schedule is required.
