Priscilla was born in Bristol, England in 1967. She toiled in public transportation until the 1980s, when she begrudgingly entered early retirement. She spent some of it in Liverpool, and some in Flitwick, but eventually succumbed to the promise of greener pastures in the U.S.—she moved to Kansas in 1993, and eventually settled in Tennessee.
Priscilla is the double-decker bus that Rufus, the owner of Nashville Double Decker, loads up with guests before touring the city. The idea for a bus-tour company came to him before his second deployment with the Tennessee Army National Guard on a visit to Nashville. He took a trolley tour that left him disappointed. The tour didn’t cross any of the city’s bridges, and he couldn’t enjoy some of Nashville’s best views thanks to the trolley’s closed top. So while Rufus was still overseas, he convinced a friend to drive Priscilla across the country from Washington, and now she shows guests the sites around Nashville.

When and how did you first develop a passion for your work?
When I was in Vietnam with the US Army. For relaxation, special services provided sailboats for us to use. When I returned from overseas and started managing Sears stores, it was a great therapy to get out on the water.
What’s your favorite part of your job?
Watching the faces of my customers change after a lesson or rental. They are so much more relaxed. It is like a mental massage for them. It is a great stress-buster to get out on the water.
Have you ever been a patron of your own business? If so, what was the most enjoyable part?
Being part of a class and enjoying in the team-building fun.
Is there anything else you want to add that we didn't cover?
My dad was a naval commander. I was born in the Oakland Naval Yard. I built my first boat when I was 8 years old. My wife and I both hold a 50 ton US Coast Guard Sailing Captains License. We have spent 150 days in a 25-foot sailboat circumnavigating Florida. I love the peace being on the water brings.
Stuart Enloe has logged some serious time in the sky. He's spent more than 200 hours in gas balloons, performed more than 80 parachute jumps, flew for 600 hours in airplanes, and totaled a whopping 2,700 hours in hot-air balloons. In total, he has spent enough time in the air to justify carving a second home into a cloud—more than 145 days.
At his main aerial outlet, Balloon Atlanta, Stuart carries this experience with him on every flight. He maintains a fleet of colorful hot-air balloons, available for scenic flights over some of the Southeast's most stunning landscapes. His passengers float over Lake Lanier, just barely skimming the surface, or sail up until mountains frame the warm light of sunset and set the scene for a romantic kiss or engagement. Regardless of which route he follows, a dedicated crew follows on the ground to pack away equipment and provide passengers a ride back to the starting point once the balloon lands.
As Halloween approaches, a formerly self-sustaining family farm that then became a premier agritourism destination transforms into Cagle's Haunted Barn, a frightening attraction that terrifies guests within their Haunted Barn. Each year brings a new haunted theme, with past stories including a cannibalistic family home and a cursed mental hospital, so even repeat guests will be newly frightened.
