Well there is no down time for this adventure mom, I just got back from 17 days in Antarctica (which I will report on soon) and within 12 hours I was on the USA state at the New York Times Travel show at the Jacob Javits Center in NYC talking about being attacked by a leopard seal in a kyack and some of my other wild adventures. The Appalachian Mountain Club invited me to speak on their behalf, since I’ve done a lot of cool adventures with them, which by the way are all free if you are a member. So if you are looking for inexpensive, local,  great things to do in a weekend, contact the club and find out what they have to offer. Check out the you tube video on the club: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0lpkm1FAaUs
