Default Frog Hollow on the Chestatee

Anyone know if Kenny Simmons is still running Goodwill Guides? Tried emailing him, no reply.

No. The guides have left Frog Hollow.

I think the Goodwill guides had a issue with the name. Seems Goodwill industries didn't like them using the Goodwill name from what I've heard. I am not sure what happened to the group and if they are still guiding.

The Goodwill Guides received a "Cease and Desist" letter from the Goodwill Organization. Bunch of ant-vets! They are now part of the "Operation Rivers to Recovery" organization. They are planning to resume guide services in the near future but not at Frog Hollow.

Well, you have to realize that brand management and protection is not a trivial subject. Just because Goodwill Industries took issue with this potential brand infringement by the Goodwill Guides does not necessarily make them anti-veteran.
