Favorite Hike in Every County in South Jersey

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.

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).

Hal’s the one on the right.
