Hi Adventure Philanthropists,
Good news for the book: We have moved into the production phase – Yahoo! We’re getting closer and closer with every week! I can almost taste it...!
REI Roadshow: And good news for the book tour! I’ve been asked by REI to conduct a 6-store roadshow in Southern California. We’ll be launching this exciting partnership at the REI store in Tustin (Orange County) on February 4, 2014 at 7:00 pm.
