Hi Adventure Philanthropists!

It was a nice surprise this morning to notice a new online review of my book Adventure Philanthropist: Great Adventures Volunteering Abroad.
Here’s DC’s 5-Star Amazon Review:
“I didn't want to put the book down! The author's stories are educational,
touching and inspiring. She delves into the realities of volunteering, donating and
traveling around the world… Loved it!”
Nice – Thanks DC! Want to read this book you can’t put down too? It’s available on both Amazon and directly from the publisher Lulu.
And it you’re interested, you can read all 21 of my Amazon Reviews here! 
And now for the articles this week:

New Post  > Camping Can Kill You: Part 1 - Predators

When I told folks about my solo hiking adventure, most expressed dismay and issued dire predictions of my imminent death. But I was prepared to counter threats by predators. Here was my scheme for coping with unwanted animalistic attention…

Fav Post  > MESSAGE: Panama City *Video*

Photo of the Week > Extraterrestrial Highway, Area 51

Recently I was super excited to be driving thorough infamous Area 51 (a U.S. Air Force restricted zone and thought to be the site of unusual phenomena, including alien contact). To me the ultimate adventure would be to explore space and since being an astronaut isn’t in the cards, alien abduction is probably the only way for me to get there. During the 2-hour drive, I periodically yelled out “Beam me up, Scotty” just to make my willingness for an intra-galaxy experience very clear to any would-be alien abductors. But no luck. I remained with my feet firmly planted on the ground (kinda).
I was so psyched to be back out in nature, that I’ve arranged a few more hiking trips.

Can’t wait to explore more of the California coast next week and maybe head up to the high Sierras before it gets too cold.
Although I already saw some snow when I drove through Yosemite last weekend. Time to bundle up!

See ya on the road,
