Hiker to Hiker by Danny Bernstein - 5M ago

It’s been a hell of a ride but now I’m writing my last blog post. I started this blog in December 2007, eleven years ago. My first book, Hiking the Carolina Mountains, published by Milestone Press, had come out that spring. I was writing a second guide book and writing a blog seemed so natural. …

It’s amazing to me how much I can learn at a meeting which has little to do with the subject at hand. I’m a dues paying member of Friends of Connect Buncombe, an organization which works to get more greenways in Asheville. Greenways are trails (usually paved) that take walkers and bikers from places to …
