On April, 18, 2018, I will begin another Camino Frances from St. Jean Pied de Port to Santiago de Compostela in northern Spain. I intend to blog at this site on a regular basis during my journey.

Beginning on June 15, 2018, I will again be available for speaking engagements on a variety of topics regarding my thru-hike of the Appalachian Trail as well as my hikes of the Camino de Santiago (Camino Frances) in Spain.  Please contact me if you would like to arrange an event at which I may speak and/or do a book signing.   I have spoken to hiking organizations, churches, civic clubs, outfitters, book clubs,, and am comfortable with any group in any setting.  I can be reached by email, phone, or at this site if you are interested in scheduling an event.
