Great day to work on a book

People are in a panic here in southern Connecticut – the supermarkets are jammed - as the locals await a winter storm that promises to dump oh, maybe 5-7 inches. Ha! I've got more than that in the freezer section of the refrigerator. The cross-country skis are ready to hit the local golf course, so meanwhile it's a great time to immerse myself in writing my first book.

"You Want to Go Where?" provides insight into the adventure marketing field from the perspective of 25 years advising and promoting adventurers, explorers and corporate sponsors. The book covers a range of projects, from world class expeditions by Will Steger, Paul Schurke, and Col. Norman D. Vaughan, to some of the more oddball expeditions ever conceived, including a sailor planning to remain at sea for 1,000 days (a record). It will be both a great read about past expeditions, and advice to the budding adventurer or explorer on how to launch their own trips and possibly get someone else to pay for it. The publisher is Skyhorse Publishing in New York. Publication is set for Summer 2009.
