Sometimes the path you’re on leads beyond the church walls and into the wilderness.
Welcome to all who wander. The pod-cast for sojourners discontent with asphalt highways, steepled cages, tidy answers and ordinary lives. Join us as we walk away from the everyday. Explore, dream and discover and live.

 I’m david and I’ll be your host on this journey as we return to the wild to explore what it means to follow our hearts once again and traipse the meandering trail through the wilderness outside the box of institutional religion. I hope you’ll throw on your pack and join us as we trod the same path travelled by the likes of Muir, Thoreau, Annie Dillard, Moses, Jesu himself and countless others who discovered the woods to be their sanctuary and their Creator to be their Guide. I hope you’ll find something here to encourage you on your journey…at the least some friends and fellow travellers. Please say hello, leave us a word or two and let us know what you think or what you’d like to see here. If you enjoy the podcasts, drop by the I-tunes Store and let them know.  We’d sure appreciate it.



“But alone in distant woods and fields…I come to myself. I suppose that this value, in my case, is equivalent to what others get by churchgoing and prayer. I come to my solitary woodland walk as the homesick go home.”
-Henry David Thoreau

  • John:

    Thank you so much for your podcasts. I’m an AT alumn (2003) and have the pull every spring to do it again. I’m curretly section hiking the Bay Circuit Trail here in Massachusetts and continue to hike the New England 4000 footers.

    I hope that you get out on the AT soon. It will change your life in so many wonderful ways.

    All the best,

    • John, you’re welcome! Thank you for your encouragement! As I’m sure you can imagine, I’m jealous. Apparently Springer Fever isn’t restricted to thru-hiker alumni because this year I was so infected I nearly quit my job. That would’ve caused a financial disaster of epic proportions, with my wife left behind to pick up the pieces. Not a good plan. It really is great hearing from you. Look me up on facebook if you get a chance and “like” the All Who Wander Podcast page to keep up on the in-between podcast happenings. I’ll have to look up the Bay Circuit Trail.

      thanks again!

    Hi David,

    Thanks for touching my soul with your podcasts. I’ve loved them all and have even gone searching for a few books based on some of the quotes you use. Your thoughts resonate so clearly they can’t help but touch our very hearts. I’m desperately waiting for the next instalment, and hope there will be many more.

    In your 1st (?) podcast you mentioned Bob Cartwright as an inspiration and I’ve been listening to his casts since Day One. Yes, you are capturing the feel of adventure and the flavour of wilderness. Long may you continue

    Kind Regards,

    David, I’m a bit of a Luddite when it comes to Facebook – I never really “Got” it I’m afraid. I do have a Facebook account so I’ll definitely “Friend” you, but I almost never check it. So, apologies from someone who’d rather be wandering than writing on a wall ;)

    Now RSS, that I get!

    So glad to have provided you with a bit of encouragement (Selfish motives too – I want more podcasts), and I’m honoured to listen to your ‘casts. The quotes and book excerpts are fantastic and have me searching for copies of the material always.

    With great respect and admiration,


  • Russ Ledbetter:

    Really enjoyed the Shake-Down & El Camino podcasts you posted from earlier this year. Sad that there hasn’t been a new one this Summer, but perhaps you and Dana are out on some new adventure while you also climb “Mt. Mortgage”. I think you do more to inspire and energize all of us A.T. wanna-be’s with your reviews, podcasts & connectedness (another fave was the 3-part Montana trip–where I most thrilled to hear/meet Dana on the dream trip!) Great to reconnect with you, David. (I don’t Facebook, but I am on (and love Twitter)–Happy Summer, Russ Ledbetter

    • Ha, ha, ha! Yup, Mt. Mortgage is a doozy. Indeed we have had our share of adventure this summer. Some of it good, some of it hard, some of it…both. Sure does my heart good to hear the podcasts inspire you. It really does mean the world to me. I hope to find some time soon to get episode 20 recorded, edited and uploaded. Hoping. Happy summer to you as well, my friend. Keep in touch.
