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.

[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.

Adventures Along the Delaware Presentation

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
