Leaving this Thursday on my annual pilgrimage to the Jamboree in the Hills (JITH) in Morristown, OH, which is about 15 miles west of Wheeling, WV.

Once there, we all sit around on a hillside, consume copious amounts of beer and occasionally actually listen to the music. This year marks the 30th anniversary of the JITH and will be the 23rd straight year I’ve been there.

I guess old habits are hard to break, or maybe I am just plain stupid for wanting to sit around in the hot sun drinking beer with country music blaring away in the background!
