january update

DuPont Forest Covered Bridge

Just a quick update. You may have noticed that there’ve been precious few changes at All Who Wander. My apologies. I still look forward to a full-blown launch within the next couple of months but setting up the infrastructure for this is proving to be more difficult than I imagined. I’m not a tech-geek.  Fortunately there are those (such as Cliff Ravenscraft, the Podcast Answerman www.podcastanswerman.com) who are energized with passion by all of the details that, to me, are frustrating obstacles to the launch. I just wanna start making shows! I’ve returned to Cliff repeatedly for advice and he’s always responded quickly with much needed encouragement and input. However, Cliff makes his living at consulting and thus far hasn’t received a dime from me. Primarily because I’m out of dimes.)  I don’t want to take advantage of his generosity so I’m trying to figure this out on my own. Demands from my day-job don’t allow for much free-time to work through my technical dilemmas so I grab every spare minute to try to slog through this quagmire of confusion. I’m afraid Dana is beginning to view my laptop as “the other woman.”  Each time I log-in to Feedburner to try and discover why my cover art isn’t showing up in I-tunes I see more and more people subscribing to the podcast.  I’m at once thrilled and mortified. I’ve told nearly no one about the show and yet the subscription numbers continue to climb. For goodness’ sake, there’s not even a real podcast posted yet! The 7 minute clip is just a welcome from my heart that gives a little background on what All Who Wander is birthed out of. I just want to say thank you for your interest and especially for your patience. All Who Wander is coming soon.  I promise.  In the meantime I hope you’ll do as we did this weekend and find time to care for your heart with a walk in the woods. Not all those who wander are lost.

  • Tom:

    I only recently found your podcast and website and what a joy your first 7 minutes were. I am impressed that you so obvously spoke from the heart. I have spent many times, over many years finding my peace and my “church” while on the trail. I admire your gift with words and trust me, I “get it”. May your quest for the AT become real. Don’t lose the fire.

    • Tom, I’m so glad you found us! Thanks so much for the kind words and encouragement. Where are you from?

      • Tom:


        I live in SW Ohio and have hiked and backpacked locally (within 2 hr. drive) countless times. We are 5 hrs. from the Smokies and have done hiking/backpacking on the AT in that area. I have also done extensive backcountry hiking, backpacking, mountaineering and x-country ski trips in Colorado, Wyoming and New Mexico over the last 30 + years. Thanks for asking.
