Well, eight long years ago I started with a dream and a free website. That dream was to some day ride through the wilds of the West on the back of my loyal cow steed – Lullabell – where I’d foil robberies and find gold.
[Note to editor – insert picture of me riding a cow here]
Anyway, haven’t managed that particular dream yet. BUT, I have ended up with a website about hiking in South Jersey. I go out, usually with some number of my four children, and we go on an adventure on a trail in South Jersey. Then I do a little write up about the trail and put some pictures up. Occassionally, I even spell words right.

Artifacts: An Illustrated Treasury of Delaware Valley History Written and Illustrated by Hal Taylor Published by Hal Taylor, 2020 pg 241 https://www.haltaylorillustration.com/
Remember that time we went to New Castle (not in South Jersey) with Hal Taylor? He wrote that book that we loved about the early settlement of the Delaware Valley, a book way more entertaining and exciting than I thought a book about the early settlement of the Delaware Valley could ever be? There was tons of history, PANTSLOADS of history (sorry, been reading Dragons Love Tacos too many times).
So back in December, I did a presentation on hiking along the Delaware in South Jersey for the Delaware River Greenway Partnership via Zoom. It was great, because anyone who threw rotten vegtables at me only his their own computer screens.
Anyway, thank you to everyone who watched and/or enjoyed it!
If you didn’t watch it, or want to hear the jokes all over again, now you can! Just go to: https://outdoors.zoom.us/rec/share/yve5JdsoXvtyPuzHUqvDYQIf8S4fD_eQahJWL_euZ8riOamCr1V6kGAGoBMKusGH.ummqa9vUd_XnZOLa
