Jon Kohler & Associates, Hall and Hall Red Hills real estate in Wall Street Journal

Jon Kohler & Associates and Hall and Hall real estate listings in the Red Hills quail-hunting region on the Georgia-Florida border were featured by the Wall Street Journal recently. The first story, by writer Nancy Keates, examined the quail-hunting heritage of the nearly 300,000-acre region and efforts to sell or donate lands for conservation. Jon Kohler of brokerage firm Jon Kohler & Associates said about two-thirds of the 200 plantations in the Red Hills remain with the descendants of the original owners, or with friends and acquaintances. “It was an unspoken rule not to sell to anyone outside the circle,” Kohler told Keates. The second story, by Candace Taylor, detailed the sale of the 7,235-acre Blue Springs Plantation in South Georgia for roughly $40 million. Hall and Hall’s Elliott Davenport Jr. represented the buyer, an avid hunter who had been looking at the plantation for over a year. Read the Wall Street Journal’s Red Hills story.

Conde Nast Traveler highlights Mir Corporation, Big Chill Adventures

A story about adventures on ice highlighted trips to Russia and Greenland by Mir Corporation and Big Chill Adventures. Sophy Roberts wrote of her 300-mile adventure across Siberia by dogsled, snowmobile, hovercraft and railroad, and getting to stand on the frozen surface of Lake Baikal. “While the romance is alluring, the realities of Siberia are forbidding, and require expert guidance. I find my man in Douglas Grimes, founder of the U.S.-based travel company Mir Corporation, which has 30 years’ experience in Russia,” Roberts wrote. In accompanying information on other icy locations, Roberts wrote that Big Chill Adventures’ “12-night tour of west Greenland is the best I’ve found.” Read the Conde Nast Traveler story...

Barron’s Penta Details Benefits of Private Skiing at Yellowstone Club

Among them, Carrie Coolidge wrote, are lift attendants who greet you by name, pristine terrain, uncrowded runs and, of course, privacy. Being a private club doesn’t mean the mountain is small, however, she wrote – Yellowstone Club has 16 lifts and over 60 runs on 2,200 acres, “with a diverse mix of beginner and intermediate terrain, as well as expert chutes, trees, and gullies.” Read the Barron’s Penta story...

Forbes Names Sun Mountain SkiGlider, FreeGlider ‘Best Ski/Snowboard Travel Cases’

Forbes contributor Larry Olmsted recently named Sun Mountain‘s SkiGlider and FreeGlider bags the “Best Ski/Snowboard Travel Bags” of the year in his annual holiday gift guide. New this year, the SkiGlider ski travel bag and FreeGlider snowboard travel bag incorporate the award-winning design of the Sun Mountain’s ClubGlider golf line, with extendable legs that support the full weight of the bag. “When you are in check-in lines at the airport, you can continue to move it forward with the push of a fingertip rather than kicking it with your foot or reaching down to drag it every time the line moves a few feet,” Olmsted wrote. The SkiGlider and FreeGlider have already been endorsed by the U.S. National Ski Patrol. Read Forbes’ Skiing and Snowboarding Holiday Gift Guide...

Washington Post Goes Fishing in Russia with Frontiers

Frontiers made the pages of the Washington Post’s travel section recently after a writer went on a fishing adventure above the Arctic Circle in Northwestern Russia. Chris Santella stayed at Ryabaga Camp on the Kola Peninsula’s Ponoi River, one of the best-known Atlantic salmon fisheries in the world. The camp has seen many improvements since its start in 1991, Santella notes – cabins with en suite bathrooms have replaced canvas tents, for example. Still, with the nearest road 300 kilometers away, most guests arrive by Mi-8 helicopter from Murmansk. Frontiers is Ryabaga Camp’s exclusive booking agent. Read the Washington Post story...
