Happy (nearly) spring everyone. Yes, we have snow in the forecast for the weekend. And yes, it’s freezing outside right now. But we are not letting any of that reality get in the way of our plans for spring and summer adventures. Buffalo and Tough Cookie will be on the road for the book, giving talks and slide shows all over New England. But we also have some big hiking adventures planned as well.
For some reason, Janelle has gotten it into her head that 2014 will be the year of running so we’ve already started getting outside when we can, doing a mile here and a mile there. The weather has been a little, shall we say, inconsistent, but the girl is already showing signs of that boundless energy she often displays on the trails. Even in our short runs, I’ve had to work to keep up. We’ll certainly participate in the Merrimack Rib Fest 5-miler in June and most likely run the Stonyfield 5k and Girls Inc 5k as well. Are you a runner? Come join us!
In adventure news, we’ve been invited to an overnight camping trip to Lonesome Lake Hut over Easter and big, big plans are underway for a long thru hike near the end of August. I could go on and on, but instead I’ll just say we’d love to see and meet some of you at an event or on the trail. Here is a link to our current, crazy, event schedule: Event Schedule 2014-15
Also, as you know, The Adventures of Buffalo and Tough Cookie has been nominated for a Reader’s Choice Award by the NH Writer’s Project. Today is the final day of voting and we would be very grateful if you’d consider voting for us. Here is the link to vote: Reader’s Choice Award
Finally, a personal plug. My second book, The Nepal Chronicles, will be released this summer. We’re having a big book release party at Gibson’s Bookstore on Thursday, July 10 and I’d love to see you all there!

Here we go! Let’s make this year unforgettable!
