I live in Rochester NY – home to Winter! – with my wife and two kids, with one step-daughter ‘away’ at college. We like to get outside as often as possible, and are fortunate enough to live in an area with a beautiful park system.

The last couple of years have been personally challenging in many ways, but after watching “Santa Claus is Comin’ to Town” for the hundredth time, I realized the value of the wisdom given to the Winter Warlock – “Put one foot in front of the other, and soon you’ll be walking out the door”. That’s what I do each day now – put one foot in front of the other, and that has made all the difference in my perspective on life.

  1. HI Winter Warlock,
    I read your post about the StickPic at http://adkhighpeaks.com/forums/member.php?u=1112.

    I’m one of the inventors of the StickPIc and would like to send you a complementary StickPic to try out. Tell me your mailing address and what make and model sticks you use. I will mail it out right away.

    Happy trails,

  2. Hi,

    There is an upcoming PBS series that launches this week from award-winning filmmaker Ken Burns, “The National Parks: America’s Best Idea.”

    We thought that “One Foot in Front of the Other” readers would be interested to know that in honor of the series (and to spread the word about the importance of protecting our national parks for future generations), we are giving away a trip to Yosemite and San Francisco as part of our 100,000 Champions for National Parks campaign. Our goal is to get to 100,000 names by October 4th – All you have to do is sign our statement of support for parks at http://www.sierraclub.org/parks. Tell us your favorite national park and your name will be added to the scrolling list of “Champions for Parks” on our homepage.

    Your readers might also be interested in the other info we have up on http://www.sierraclub.org/parks – tips for how to visit the national parks, an interactive map featuring info about 12 of our most iconic national parks, the best trails to enjoy in each of the parks, interviews with Ken Burns, video excerpt from the series, and more.

    Is this the kind of thing you would be interested in covering?

  3. Hi Winter Warlock,

    If you watched Ken Burns’ new documentary that aired on PBS last week, “The National Parks: America’s Best Idea,” then you may remember one of the stars of the film, Shelton Johnson. He is one of the only African-American park rangers at Yosemite and now he can add author to his list of accomplishments. Sierra Club Books has published his first novel, “Gloryland,” a historical fiction book about a young African-American man in the Reconstructed South who joined the cavalry and became a buffalo soldier in Yosemite. Told from the first-person perspective of the protagonist, Elijah Yancy, the story recounts his journey to find freedom through his connection with nature in Yosemite. More information about the author and the book can be found here: http://www.sierraclub.org/parks/gloryland/

    The novel is just fresh off the presses, so if you would be interested in setting up an interview with Johnson, then we can arrange a time for you to do so. He would be available to discuss the need for more diversity in national parks, the history of the buffalo soldiers, and what it’s like to be one of the only African-American park rangers in Yosemite.

    Would you be interested in blogging about “Gloryland” or Johnson?

  4. Hi Winter Warlock,

    I want to make sure you know about the upcoming premiere of the Spanish-language version of Ken Burns’ documentary, “The National Parks: America’s Best Idea.” The Sierra Club is proud to be working in partnership with V-me, the nation’s fastest-growing Spanish-language TV network, to promote the upcoming Spanish-language airings of “Parques Nacionales.”

    Between November 4 and January 20, the documentary series will air in one-hour segments for twelve consecutive Wednesdays on V-me. For local times and channel info visit vmetv.com/estaciones

    Visit http://www.sierraclub.org/parques to see a trailer of the film and find helpful resources – tips for first-time national park visitors, highlighted Sierra Club Outings trips to national parks, and information about some our country’s most beloved parks – all in Spanish.

    Bilingual spokespeople from the Sierra Club are available for interviews. Would you like to schedule an interview or receive more information?

    Just wanted to give you a head’s up on the Sierra Club’s new, exciting opportunity that just may be The Best Internship on Earth. One lucky young person will get to spend this summer traveling around the country to Sierra Club’s outdoor youth programs, including our Inner City Outings, Volunteer Vacations, and Building Bridges to the Outdoors – the intern will video-blog about all of the outdoor adventures that he/she will have (backpacking, rafting, hiking, and more). On top of that, he/she will receive a $2,500 stipend and be outfitted with $2,000 worth of gear from The North Face and Planet Explore!

    No previous outdoor or video experience is required. Applicants just have to be between the ages of 18 and 25 and have a real passion for exploring, enjoying, and protecting the outdoors.

    More information can be found here:http://www.sierraclub.org/bestinternship/faq.aspx

    I think that the readers of Winter Warlock would be greatly interested in applying for this. Would you want to blog about this?
