About the Author: The authors, Rich and Sue Freeman decided to make their living from what they love hiking and bicycling. In 1996 they left corporate jobs to spend six months hiking 2,200 miles on the Appalachian Trail from Georgia to Maine. That adventure deepened their love of the outdoors and inspired them to share this love by introducing others to the joys of hiking. Since most people don t have the option (let alone the desire) to undertake a six-month trek, they decided to focus on short hikes, near home. The result was the first edition (1997) of Take A Hike! Family Walks in the Rochester Area. They went on to explore hiking, bicycling and paddling trails throughout the Central and Western New York State region.
Rich and Sue continue to be active with various trail groups, and they enjoy doing trail work. In addition, their passion for long distance hiking continues. They have thru-hiked the 500-mile long Bruce Trail in Ontario, Canada, hiked across Spain on the Camino de Santiago Trail, hiked across England on the Coast to Coast Trail, and climbed Mt. Kilimanjaro in Africa. They have bicycled across New York State, following the Erie Canalway Trail and biked the C&O Canal Trail. Each year, in addition to doing guidebook research, they try to take at least one long adventure trip.
Since beginning their new career writing and publishing books, the Freemans have pared down their living expenses and are enjoying a simpler lifestyle. They now have control of their own destiny and the freedom to head into the woods for a refreshing respite when the urge strikes. Still, their life is infinitely more cluttered than when they carried all their worldly needs on their backs for six months on the Appalachian Trail.
