No place is too far to walk if you have the time

Her motto is "No place is too far to walk if you have the time." She completed the Mountains-to-Sea Trail on May 4, 2011, 1,000 miles across North Carolina. And she has a   blog where you can read about the whole trip.

Danny is an avid hiker, a member of the Carolina Mountain Club (CMC) and a life member of the Appalachian Trail Conservancy.

mtscoverShe has  hiked the whole Appalachian Trail and completed the South Beyond 6,000, all the 6,000 foot mountains in the Southern Appalachians. Just to name a few of her hikes.

What a difference from her previous life, where she was a software developer then a college professor teaching computer science at Kean University in New Jersey.

Now when  she's not hiking, she writes about the outdoors. Her book, Hiking the Carolina Mountains was published in April 2007, a second guidebook, Hiking North Carolina's Blue Ridge Mountains came out in April 2009 and her new book is The Mountains-to-Sea Trail Across North Carolina. She also writes regularly for the Mountain Xpress and National Parks Traveler.

The Part of the trail that is in our neighbor is the "Neusiok Trail". Here is a link to that portion.

Time. That's the thing I crave the most, as do most people I'm sure. There are SO MANY THINGS I want to do that I just don't have time for, sculpture, travel, reading, walking, riding, kayaking, sitting on the porch..... Have to figure this out!

Nice to meet you Danny!
