New Zealand: Along the Ben Lomond Trail.


Hike-about is an adventure that commenced June 2010. After storing our household movables, ridding ourselves of a house but retaining our 'home' together, we set off with the purpose of hiking in different parts of the world, not forgetting the home country, the USA.

Our primary focus is hiking to mountain peaks but any challenging hike will do just fine. Extended stays enable us to enjoy and experience living in various places amongst differing cultures. Hike-about has evolved into a way of life. It's also a process of discovery, both the world and ourselves.

We work and live 'on the road' but return to the city in which our grandchildren reside, every couple of months. This provides us the wonderful opportunity to be with them as well as a child or two, even three and of course, friends.

By the end of 2022, the blog contained over 1,470 hikes, each a set of pictures with stories and anecdotes from the trails. An index to the right allows the viewer to identify earlier experiences.

Finally, we are often asked about the journey's end.
ur reply, as accurate as we can state, is: "When we are either forced to cease through health issues or the enjoyment level no longer reaches our aspirations, we will hang up the boots."

"A Life Experience As No Other: Dare to Seize the Day Together", published by Fulton Books, depicts our life on the road and mountains until the beginning of 2017. It has developed 'exponentially' since then.

San Diego: Flowers, Birds and Benny...three days of taking in the surrounds.

This is for Doug Morton of Pietermaritzburg.

"Hey, what's the rush?"

61 years age difference and Benny is explaining the facts of life to Gaga who in turn will enlighten me...later.

Could say we viewed 2 pairs of pelicans. (Frankly, we can say whatever we like...what matters is whether anyone will listen.)

The beauty that surrounds...


That's the signal.

Wing or is it a flap test.


Up, up and away...mind the dam(n) wall.

Sometimes it's the simple things which have a depth of beauty.

There's a sign warning against making contact with the water. Benny must have missed it.
