Meet the Fat Man

I’m a newspaperman and writer living on the Massachusetts coast. I love the ocean, but I’d rather be in the woods. I’m currently climbing all 48 of New Hampshire’s 4,000-foot mountains — slowly — to raise money for Kestrel Educational Adventures. I write mostly about hiking, running the outdoors and what it all means to me but I often digress to favorite topics, like BBQ and beer…

    Hi Dave,
    Loved the Christmas eve post – and as your aunt, I know only too well that it’s all true!
    I think your brother Matt is still searching for THE perfect tree! Was fun to read and remember how cute you guys were in snowsuits – even if they did have pitch on them…!

      I personally loved the rides home as well. A weary father, three boys and a tree, all packed into a Chevy Chevette.

    Hi,
    Great blog! I’d like to have TrailsNH.com start following your blog. If you add a “Trip Report” category and tag your trips, I’ll have TrailsNH geo-tag and index your trip reports. Thanks. Give me a shout if you want.
