I learned at my friend POG's holiday party last night that my hiking friend Susan "Jackrabbit" Letcher has a blog. It's called West of the Fields and is about her field research in Costa Rica (she's a doctoral student researching tropical ecology).
I also learned that she and her sister Lucy ("Isis") recently published two books about their Appalachian Trail "yo-yo" hike. Adventures of the Barefoot Sisters, Book 1: Southbound is about their Maine to Georgia hike in 2000-2001, and Adventures of the Barefoot Sisters, Book 2: Walking Home is about their hike back to Maine in 2001.
It's time for a bit more Christmas shopping!
