Giovanni & Simonetta Pitt
Another good friend, Ranger John Pitt. He introduced me to alot of good things and places here in Italy. He's also a good hiking buddy, as you can see:
Recently, Ranger Pitt joined the ranks of the betrothed (Buckle up and put your seat to the upright position dude, it's gonna be a wild ride!). His bride was an Italian beauty named Simonetta. Here's a picture from their wedding:
