Group Description

Travels and Trails brings you my, Mara Factor's, journal entries from hikes, backpacks, and explorations of the world in areas both near and far to my home in eastern Massachusetts. Journals from my 1997 China and Nepal trip and 1999 thruhike of the 2,165 mile Appalachian Trail are available only on my web site but all trips after 2002 are sent to this group before I take the time to reformat them for my web site.

Since 2002, I’ve spent a total of over four years either hiking or traveling. In that time, I’ve hiked over half of the Appalachian Trail again, paddled 100 miles of the Shenandoah River, spent a summer in a cabin with no electricity in the Adirondacks, traveled throughout Australia, New Zealand, Southeast Asia (Laos, Cambodia, Thailand, Malaysia, and Singapore), Central America (Guatemala, Honduras, El Salvador), South America (Argentina, Chile, Peru), and even visited the Falkland Islands, South Georgia Island, Antarctica, and Easter Island.

I eventually upload these journal entries to my web site where you can read about most of my travels and other hiking and travel related information. My web site now includes most of my journals through 2012. My web site continues to evolve to include journals, pictures, and travel advice and I will continue to send trip reports on short and long forays to this group.

See you on the trail,
