Have we mentioned how much you all mean to us?

 

Such a beautiful gift, yin/yang walking stick.

Such a beautiful gift, yin/yang walking stick.

Sometimes, Janelle and I just have to stop and take a moment to look around and take account of all the wonderful folks who have helped us on this amazing journey. Now, as we begin the new year, and as I set off on the madness of having a second book release coming in June, I was reminded of just how important you all are.

I just returned from a trip that took me through Buffalo, Chicago, Cincinnati and Columbus, where I had the honor of being on the receiving end of some very fine mid-west hospitality. Janelle’s great-aunt Margie has been a kind and active supporter of ours since the beginning of this journey and I finally had the chance to meet her over a cup of tea. Incredibly, she gave me a walking stick, built and painted by her late husband. Janelle and I are continuously reminded of how kind and supportive of this adventure you all have been, never more so then when something like that happens. Thank you Margie, for the very beautiful gift, but also for your support, enthusiasm and love.

We hope to meet more of our fans tomorrow, Feb. 1 at the Hollis Social Library in Southern New Hampshire. Buffalo and Tough Cookie will be celebrating national Bring Your Child to the Library Day and we hope you’ll join us so we can thank you in person! We’ll be there from 11am-1:30pm.

So, thank you . It means a lot to us. Let’s make 2014 amazing!

Sled hard and sled well!

The architect of Sunday's Sledding Derby gets ready for another run.

The architect of Sunday’s Sledding Derby gets ready for another run.

We planned on hiking Tecumseh Sunday, going for Janelle’s third 4,000 footer. But then, Tough Cookie informed me that instead we would pile as many people in the car as we could, haul our body boards over the Derryfield Hill and sled until our legs were sore and our faces were frozen. Only then, would the massive snowball fight ensue. After that, the enormous fort would be built and then demolished. Then more sledding. The end.

So said the girl, and so it was!

We’re going to try a different kind of link today to encourage those of you who are not yet Facebook followers to click on over there and check out the great photos we took from our Sledding Derby. And while you’re there, how about giving us a LIKE? We be ever so grateful! Check us out here: Sledding Sunday

     The fun begins tomorrow, Jan. 18, in our own backyard as we kick off the year with a stop at Derry Public Library for a slide show and book signing. This is a good chance for you southern NH fans to check in and say hi! We’ll begin at 1 p.m. Here’s the Derry Library link for more information and directions: Derry Library Presentation

Early 2014 schedule is starting to take shape

Our early 2014 schedule is starting to take shape and it’s looking very full and exciting! From libraries to luncheons to hiking club events, we’ll be hitting the highways again for readings, signings, slide shows and meet and greets. I have also taken the liberty of adding all the Dan-only events coming up as well. I’ll be giving talks on Nepal and Alaska in the next few months and those should be a lot of fun!

Here is the link, we hope to see you there: Upcoming Events

For now, I’ll be taking a short hiatus from Social Media to work on and hopefully finish a couple outstanding writing projects. We’ll be back next weekend with more exciting adventures. Till then, hike on!
