Welcome! Tally ho!

Our B.V.I. Adventure is designed to give our family, friends and any other interested followers a look into the life of two expatriates making their way on the island of Tortola. Tortola is the largest island in the British Virgin Islands.

So, why did we move 2,000 miles away from our home in Knoxville, Tennessee? Michael accepted a position as the director of retail and international sales for a Caribbean clothing brand.

Pusser's in the WSJ TODAY!

Did you see it?  The Wall Street Journal did a story about the "ulitimate webcation" and featured Pusser's many webcams scattered throughout the BVI! 

Michael made contact with the reporter, Ralph Gardner, back in December when he pitched him a story about Pusser's rum cake.  The reporter was responsive to the pitch, but wanted to first focus on the webcams and the mini-escapes they provide Caribbean enthusiasts who find themselves snowed in up north somewhere! 

Michael set up an interview for him with Charles Tobias (founder of Pusser's).  The two got along splendidly; both share a sense of humor.  At one point in the article, the writer compares Charles to John Wayne and recounts a particular coversation he overheard during one of his follow-up interviews...that conversation was between Charles and Pusser's "tech guy" which happens to be none other than Pier, Da Tree Men's basist!  Ha!  I imagine the last place he thought he'd end up today was in a Wall Street Journal article. 

I have to give major props to Michael for making this happen!  Gardner says a story on the rum cake will eventually follow.  Two-for-one possibly!  Now, who wants rum cake?  I suddenly have a craving!
