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.
So, I did a Zoom lecture thing thanks to the lovely people at the Delaware River Greenway Partnership, where I shared adventures on ten trails in South Jersey along the Delaware. For those who didn’t take notes or who didn’t want to hear me run my mouth for an hour (I don’t blame you!), here’s the Cliff Notes version of adventures on the Delaware River!
