Appalachian Odyssey: A 28-Year Hike on America's T October 18, 2018
Lets celebrate the Centennial year of the White Mountain National Forest, Author Jeffrey Ryan of "Appalachian Odyssey: A 28-Year Hike on America's Trail" and "Blazing Ahead: Benton MacKaye, Myron Avery and the Rivalry that built the Appalachian Trail" will visit the Whitney Community Center in Jackson, New Hampshire to share his Appalachian Trail (AT) adventures and how his "AT" trek took him over 28 years.

Writing "Appalachian Odyssey" kindled yet another adventure for Ryan. Intrigued by how the Appalachian Trail was conceived and built, he dove into archival materials to create his second book: "Blazing Ahead: Benton MacKaye, Myron Avery and the Rivalry that built the Appalachian Trail". Published in 2017 by Appalachian Mountain Club Books, his history of the trail explores the personal, political and economic uncertainties that often stood in the way of progress and how they were overcome to make the trail a reality.

Appalachian Odyssey and Blazing Ahead will be available for purchase at the event and Jeffrey would be delighted to sign copies.

Oh! My Aching Knees! November 14, 2018
Did you know that over 50 million people in the United States suffer from some type of arthritis? Maybe you have been told your arthritis is a result of your age, your genes or from the wear and tear of being an athlete, now or when you were younger. Instead of accepting your arthritis as the way it is, and the pain and other symptoms that go along with it, learn how to heal yourself by using food as medicine along with other lifestyle changes, and get yourself back on the road to recovery of living a pain-free life.
Barbara Gulino is a life-long cooking teacher and healthy food enthusiast.
