To all of you who followed my blog in 2009 until pneumonia took me down, thank you so much! I wanted to let you know that when I was able, I got back on my feet and kept up my goal. I ended up back down in Baltimore again, on the battlefield at Gettysburg, and, of course, in lots of wonderful places on the South Shore of Boston.


I'm happy to say that I've put everything together in two books: Half an Hour a Day on Foot: An Obsessive Exploration of the Nature of the South Shore of Boston and Half an Hour a Day on Foot: Stepping Out of Bounds. The former, of course, covers my 290 or so local walks, while the latter takes in everything outside of the region, from Boston to New Brunswick to Lake Tahoe. This second book is available in both color and black and white.
My "official" followers should know that the main title is dedicated to you (see page 4). Here are the links:
Thanks again, and I'll see you on the trails!
