    So there’s the news. I’ve got a thriller series currently in the works. I’ll start with three books hopefully ready for release by 2023…

  • They Call This a Trail – New Hampshire

    Before we even arrived at the White Mountain National Forest in New Hampshire, I was warned by a fellow traveler to make sure and purchase the state’s safe hiking card. That way, if I was injured in the backcountry and… Read More ›

  • Miles to go? New England

    I’d meant to post updates of our yearly migration but as always, the blog got sidelined. At the start of the year, I spent far more time than is healthy rearranging our finances. We’ve managed to cobble together a modest… Read More ›
