Some years back something unexpected and miraculous happened, I was presented with an opportunity to lace up my hiking boots, hit the trails, write about it, and be rewarded for the effort with cash and future royalty checks. In short- I was hired to hike and write. What a dream! Many happy hiking hours and strokes of the keyboard later my book 60 Hikes Within 60 Miles: Boston was completed. Now following the passage of a handful of years, changes to the terrain brought on by saber tooth beavers, brush fires, freak tornadoes, fearsome downpours, the traffic of bipeds and quadrupeds, and who knows what else, I’ve been asked to return to the trails, and to my writing table.
My mission is to revisit old trails and discover and introduce new trails, wonderous new forests, footholds and plateaus. I’ve got a new book coming, and now I have this blog where anyone who pleases can follow along with me on my wonderings and wanderings.
