Exploring the Ocala National Forest - A presentation

In 2011 Roger Fulton and his team set out to explore all of the 130 miles of hiking and biking trails in the Ocala National Forest west of Ormond Beach and Daytona. In a Powerpoint presentation he will share what he found in his travels from prairies to critters; both wild and human. The event is on January 13th, 2014 at 7 pm at the Cuplet Fern Chapter of the FNPS. The public is invited and it is free. The location is 200 Fairmont Avenue in Sanford, FL.
Copies of his book will be available for sale at the presentation.

Hiking, biking in Florida and New York

We enjoy sharing our adventures and activities with friends, both new and old. But I know I'm hard to keep up with. Especially since I often don't know where I am going on an adventure outing. So I have put together this simple Blog so you can join me at my presentations, my hikes and so you know when a new book or whatever comes out. So check in frequently - or better yet - sign up with for an RSS feed to your computer when I post an event, or sign up with for an e-mail whenever I post. And I promise to only post about once a week about upcoming activities. A few may be on short notice, but you are welcome to join me. A reservation would be appreciated via e-mail to even on short notice. And you can always contact me, and review our 30 or so trail guides at:
The first entries will start later this month for events in Central Florida, particularly in the Deland/Orlando area. So stay tuned and sign up. I look forward to meeting you.
