What you can expect from me in 2019

This year is going to be a great adventure—and a lot of fun if you plan to follow along.

My first book, Wilderness, The Gateway To The Soul, continues to be a big success. Thanks to you. Many have been asking if I intend to write more. The answer is an overwhelming YES. All my life I have been searching for a way to make wilderness my vocation. With you, that dream is possible. I do not intend to waste such an opportunity.

In March we will be hitting the road, venturing deeply into the world’s first designated roadless area, New Mexico’s Gila Wilderness. From there we will slowly crawl north, moving with the sun, through the blooming deserts of Arizona, and into the little-known canyons of southern Utah.

In the summer we will head up to the Northern Cascades of Washington, then into Montana and the Bob Marshall Wilderness, and finally into the Wallowas of eastern Oregon. It’s a rough plan. Subject to change. Like always we will trust our instincts, following our hearts into the unknown.

Just as before, there will be one purpose. To tell the Truth. To seek out the living, breathing soul of wilderness, listen to her sermon, and record her message with pen and notebook. I will try, to the best of my ability, to keep the message pure.

We must all speak up for wilderness. Or it will be gone.

Thanks for following along. Together we are stronger.

Off we shall go. Into the mystic.

    Hi Scott! Just finished your book a few days ago and loved it! I live and work in Glacier National Park. The Bob Marshall is MUCH more your style of hiking, but it would be great if you could stop in to the park and say hello. I work in the Swiss Lounge at the Many Glacier Hotel on the East side of the park. I don’t know if you planned on coming that far north but I would love to buy the two of you a beer if you do! 🙂

    I discovered the Wallowas in northeast Oregon by sheer good fortune on May of 2017, winter home of Nez Perce and Chief Joseph. There is lovely state park on Wallowa lake – reserve early. Wonderful camping, fishing and hiking. The whole region of full of history, including the NP trail, Lewis and Clark, and Oregon trail. Don’t miss it and happy trails.

    It sounds like a lovely adventure, Scott. I discovered the Wallowas in late spring last year and it is now one of my favorite places. No wonder that Chief Joseph and the Nez Pe never wanted to leave.
