Aside from the limitless recreational opportunities Deep Creek Lake and Garrett County Provide. This last year I have noticed that the Deep Creek Lake area has become popular as a destination wedding area. On the shores of Deep Creek, by the rushing waters of Muddy Creek Falls, In a barn at a local B&B. This has been a great season of making special memories for new friends.

Here is what people are saying.
“I would highly recommend Bradley as a wedding officiant. He is extremely professional and “down to earth. We had a destination wedding at Deek Creek Lake, MD. Our original officiant could not make our wedding ( she canceled a week prior), Bradley Saved our day by stepping up last minute and giving us an amazing ceremony. (may i add it was also on a Holiday). I truly thank him for giving us our dream ceremony.” – Brittney Dietz
Still no confirmation of the BIG fish of Deep Creek Lake. This video will give a general idea of diving conditions in the lake. If you are out and about on the lake and lose something of value or need some underwater work done. Please feel free to contact me for your underwater recovery needs.

I live in a charming OLD home. Six foot doors for my 6’4″ head and shower controls that shock with no rhyme or reason. As a Realtor I always tell my clients to call me if I can ever be of help. I have answered many odd questions. The subject of pest control rarely comes up, inspections yes, control, no. I will admit that the cooling weather has forced my outside friends in and there is a mouse in the house, or two.
I am a dog person so cats are not an option. Poisons are also out because of the dogs. Of the many traps available I am a supporter of the original design Victor Snap. You might think that you put a few traps out and problem solved. I am here to share some tips that make things easier.
First, bait I love cheese to much to waste it as bait. Peanut Butter can be licked off, and Fig Newtons just don’t work. I have had moderate success with Pop Tarts, peperoni and orange marmalade. The big winner is X & O cat food. It needs to be tied to the trigger.
Next is placement, very crucial if you like to go barefoot, I do. Along walls away from foot traffic works best. After selecting the locations and baiting the traps they need to actually be placed. BE PREPARED these things will go off at the slightest bump, it adds to the excitement.
After all is in place all that is left is to dispose of the remains. Oh yeah, one more thing, when these things go off in the quiet evening hours you may get a little startle. It is my hope that you are never faced with this problem if you are I hope this helps.
Living in all this mountain beauty it is sometimes forgotten how rugged and challenging the terrain can be. The Savageman Triathlon reminds participants in a big way. This years event will be on September 15 – 16, 2012. If your plans do not currently include participating, but you want to watch? Volunteers are needed. This is a great way to help out a great cause and get up close to the action.

With the school year about to start and the temperatures cooling off a little, sometimes my thoughts are drifting to high school football. There are so many things to do at Deep Creek Lake and in Garrett County. High school football at either Northern Garrett or Southern Garrett High Schools are another great event.
With only two high schools in Garrett County the rivalry runs deep. Below is the schedule for the 2012 Southern Huskies varsity football season. The games are played behind the high school located east of Oakland MD.
