Making a Difference: Building New Trail from Ken Knight on Vimeo.

Complete entry at my blog

Welcome to my web page. The pages here change often so you should check back in now and then. I realize that this title page doesn't leap out and grab you, but underneath this un-assuming exterior is a site that I think has a lot to offer. I hope you enjoy it.

I am an avid backpacker. See my Ultralight Backpacking pages for my thoughts.
I have been involved with computer technology for some time and will do web site design and other IT consulting.

The Great Lakes Hikes email list is a great resource for hiking, backpacking, snowshoeing, and other backcountry travel in the Great Lakes region (Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Minnesota, New York, Ohio, Ontario, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin). One resoruce is the Question of the Week series that is archived here.

What’s New












December 12, 2008

On September 16, 2008 the Wandering Knight podcast made its debut. While a subscribe button has existed all that time I only just realized my oversight in this section. So along with the intorduction of the new player in the upper left corner of the page I heartily announce the new podcast which at this point has 10 episodes.

The Wandering Knight podcast can be found hosted here.

I know that it has been a long time since I put a trip report or much of anything obvious on the site, but as some of you may have figured out I have not been idle. Visit my my new blog, A Wandering Knight, to see some videos of things I've done as well as learn about other interesting travel related stuff.

Also pay attention to the top of the page for latest videos. Right now I'm sharing a video on trail building. If you have a fast enough connection I encourage you to watch the video in full screen mode so you can see it in high definition (720p). However, if that results in a jerky video enjoy the smaller version instead.

February 25, 2008 I joined two friends of mine for a trip into the heart of Americana. We went to Punxsultawney, PA for Ground Hog’s Day. You can learn a bit more about the trip and see the video I shot of the event by visiitng this entry in my blog.
