Well, I am off the road again, having just returned from the latest hiking in Tuscany trip, and it’s time to think like a hiker and breakfast guy, and author and publisher, again. I’ll be getting back into the new breakfast book this week, but first, it’s time to get out there and do some […]
I just got my hands on a terrific-looking new book called Walking Portland, from the same company (Wilderness Press) that does my hiking books. There are so many books about walks in Portland that, at first, I wondered what the company was thinking. There are books about wilderness in town, trees, hills, stairs, hiking trails within […]
I will be leading an awesome hike this September 15-21 for the Mazamas. It’s called Hiking and Climbing in the Trinity Alps, and as of today there are still a couple of spots left!

That’s why I seriously dig this new book called Left Coast Roast, by Portland writer Hanna Neuschwander. It’s subtitled “A Guide to the […]
Since I don’t hike much this time of year, other than occasional Gorge hikes, I figured I could at least offer some news and related events. And so: On February 6 one of my employers, the very impressive Donovan Pacholl of Embark Adventures, will give a talk at the Mazamas on climbing Mt. Kilimanjaro. That’s […]
