OUT OF BOUNDS

T his is a red letter site if ever there was one. Absolutely terrific! Jeff Johnson is our contact with four men traveling around the world on a 46 foot sailboat. WOW! This was also chosen as the Cool Site of the Day on May 1st. It got 3500 hits that day.


MOON MASSACHUSETTS HANDBOOK

Moon Travel Handbooks most recent edition is their Massachusetts Handbook by Jeff Perk. Including Boston, the Berkshires, and Cape Cod, this new travel guide is beautifully crafted with historical tidbits, surprising photographs -- would you believe a picture of Jack Kerouac not previously seen anywhere by this editor -- and journeys across the landscape of Cape Cod. I love Cape Cod. In fact I wrote a story about it titled The Distant Listener which describes a trip I took to Marconi's beachside transcontinental telegraph station. Jeff Perk describes it this way, "In 1903, President Thoedore Roosevelt sent greetings to King Edward VII of England via the magic of Guglielmo Marconi's wireless telegraph- a historic event made possible by an enormous set of radio masts erected two years earlier at this Wellfleet cliff." Well said! Lots more in this book. Excellent!

TRAVELING WOMAN'S GUIDE TO HOLLAND .

Evelyn Hannon has done it again. An excellent guide for traveling to Holland. "Netherland Notes by women for women." Well designed. An eye catcher. Worth reading and saving.

QUOTE OF THE MONTH:


"As I get considerably beyond the biblical allotment of three score years and ten, I feel with increasing intensity that I can express my gratitude for still being around on the oxygen-side of the earth's crust only by not standing pat on what I have hirtherto known and loved. While the oxygen lasts, there are still new things to love, especially if compassion is a form of love."

Norman Maclean, Young Men and Fire

ANOTHER TRAVEL WRITER WHO WILL NOT BORE YOU !!!!!

Edward Abbey

"About ten years ago I took a job as a seasonal park ranger in a place called Arches National Monument near the little town of Moab in southeast Utah. Why I went there no longer matters; what I found there is the subject of this book. My job began on the first of April and ended on the last day of September. I liked the work and the canyon country and returned the following year for a second season. I would have returned the third year too and each year thereafter but unfortunately for the Arches, a primitive place when I first went there, was developed and improved so well that I had to leave." Edward Abbey - The introduction to Desert Solitaire.

Edward Abbey is the author of Desert Solitaire, one of the great travel books of all time.
