Hi, and thank you for taking the time to read the About page.

There are just a few things in life I enjoy to an extent that I will risk dying a broke, old man to do. One of them is hiking — hiking in the mountains of northwest Washington, and hiking across Europe. I’ve walked from near Barcelona to the northwest coast of Spain, and from Barcelona to Rome. God willing and the creek don’t rise, I’ll take another little hike across Spain from Almeria to Muxia. That’s diagonally across the fascinating country of Spain from southeast to northwest. One of these days I’ll attempt a pilgrimage to Jerusalem from Rome. I realize that may be the last walk I take, but, a short life and a merry one, I always say!

Books about my travels are available at Amazon.com, Barnes and Noble (for Nook), and through Smashwords.com in any electronic format you can think of. Just query my name, DeMar Southard, or click below to find them.

Joe’s Outdoor Store is dedicated to providing information on outdoor equipment for hiking, camping, hunting, and surviving emergency and disaster situations. At this time, Joe’s is an Amazon.com store, meaning anything you may purchase from this site is fulfilled, shipped, and guaranteed by Amazon. I have personally had extremely satisfactory service from that company and I feel confident in offering products from them.

Here’s to adventure!
