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).
