    Good luck with the 50 hikes! I am a new hiker and blogger. I would like to to hear about your hikes since some are in my neck of the woods. Thanks!

    • Hello Frank! Nice to meet another hiking/blogging newbie. Looks like I’m about a month your senior–in blogging anyway. I look forward to hearing about your own journeys as well. Happy hiking!

    Hi GSH, I was searching for other people’s comments on the 50 hikes and found your page. I wonder if you’ve made any progress with the 50 hikes? I see the first one is done.

    I just bought the book, and i’ve spent the last 2 hours picking a few for me and my dog to do do before it gets too cold. 🙂
