June 2, 2011
I hiked on the James River trails alone twelve miles five times a week for eighteen months and could find no one who would go hiking with me. Then I discovered Meetup. On June 2, 2011 I founded James River Hikers - Hiking With History. The rest is history.
Yes, and I recently posted a different one that makes me more recognizable. I hope others will do the same.
Bicycled across the continent three times (twice across Canada). Volunteer at Virginia Hospice and belong to Kiwanis Club of Richmond and Rotary Club of Richmond. Since I retired in 2000 focus on having an important mission to accomplish every day, doing something for others, and doing the unimaginable.
The raw power, beauty and history of the James River fascinate me, and I enjoy sharing it with others.
