Welcome to JoeRinehart.com!

In a nutshell,

I have an extensive background with Internet e-commerce and Search Engine Optimization (SEO) consulting solutions which precede the commercialism of the Internet. I'm very proud of that fact and, chances are, more than you wish to know about me is within or linked from this web site.

I've included both a professional SEO consulting and a personal blog in a re-designed web site to make it easier for people to follow me, in business and life.

There are also several ways my last name is often misspelled, which include: Reinhart, Rhinehart, Rinehardt, Rineheart, Rhineheart, Reinhardt, however, the surname I was born with is Rinehart.

Peace Treaty Towpath Trail Snack Shack

Today, more than 2.5 million people use the Towpath Trail every year. It runs over 85 miles from Tuscarawas county to Lake Erie.

Proposed Peace Treaty Towpath Trail Snack ShackOur family is  planning to turn the little barn into a Peace Treaty Towpath Trail Snack Shack in 2017. On April 24, 2017, the IRS Federal Employer Identification Number EIN number 82-1286139 was assigned to Joe Rinehart DBA Towpath Trail Snack Shack. A Tuscarawas county, Ohio vendor's license from the Auditor's office is required before we may sell granola to the bikers, canoeist, fishermen, & hikers crossing the nearby Stark-Tuscarawas county line.

We offer Amish goods, jerky, prepackaged trail-mix, granola & related healthy locally produced products, ice cream, cold bottled water, tee-shirts, photographs, post cards and such to the bikers and hikers enjoying the trail.

In May 2016, my family donated a 12' legal easement of our property frontaA view from the Proposed Peace Treaty Towpath Trail Snack Shackge to allow Towpath Trail development to close the last remaining gap in the trail between Scenic Byway route 800 in Dover, Ohio to the shore of Lake Erie in Cleveland. In Sept 2016 the village of Bolivar, Ohio and the Bolivar Mainstreet Association Towpath Trail Committee developed the trail from downtown Bolivar to about 20 feet from my property line. In 2017-18, the towpath trail will be developed across my property to the 12' 6" low Wheeling and Lake Erie Railroad bridge on Scenic Byway Route 212 to the McDonnell Bolivar aqueduct trailhead.

Our property is the also the location of an historical intersection of the Greenville Treaty Line, the Ohio-Erie canal, Towpath Trail, Wheeling & Lake Erie Railroad, Scenic Byway Route 212 section, Western Union telegraph lines (several poles still standing) and the Ohio Buckeye Trail.

The Greenville Peace Treaty was the first peace treaty authorized by George Washington and the US Congress.

Tuscarawas County Chamber of Commerce

Tuscarawas County Chamber of CommerceI decided to join the Tuscarawas County Chamber of Commerce in February 2016! While the benefits are great, the primary reason I joined was to network and get to know other business people throughout our beautiful Tuscarawas county, Ohio.  The mission of the Tuscarawas County Chamber of Commerce is the formation of strategic partnerships to advance the economic, education, civic and cultural prosperity of Tuscarawas County

I'm really looking forward to the Business after Hours events and networking with other entrepreneurs to expose my eCommerce website review and other Internet marketing consulting services!

Bolivar-Zoar Rotary Club

I'm a member of the Rotary Club of Bolivar - Zoar, Ohio and have found fellowship with other like minded professionals who wish to make a difference within our local communities and around the world!


One of the things I love about being a Rotarian is the 4-way test of the thiings we think, say or do, which includes:

  1. Is it the truth?
  2. Is it fair to all concerned?
  3. Will it build goodwill and better friendships?
  4. Will it be beneficial to all concerned?

Internet Marketing Career Anniversary

Today, I logged into my account on LinkedIn http://www.linkedin.com/in/joerinehart/ and was reminded that this month is the 23rd anniversary of my formal Internet marketing career using the config.com domain name that I registered Jan 31 1994! I'm still quick to point out that my Internet e-Commerce career actually got started just after the 1992 (April '93) tax season when I started selling single spin CD-ROM disc's mostly to university students, faculty, and the few companies on the 'net at the time!

I was digging around archive.org (now known as the way back machine) for a copy of one of the actual ads that I authored and ran in Computer Shopper between Oct '93 and Oct '94 a couple of years before the Internet was commercial for an interview today with The Daily Kent Stater at Kent State University and found one from Oct '94.

Usually when I tell people about my 15 minutes of fame according to Andy Warhol they'll respond "but we all know that Al Gore invented the Internet". I'll smile and respond I don't claim to have invented the 'net, or wish to take anything away from either Al Gore or Tim Berners-Lee, just having attempted to capitalize on it as ethically as possible at the time through traditional print media instead of spam (still a bad thing), for which I'm very proud to have been at the right place at the right time in history.
