You hear a lot about greenways these days – and for good reason too.

Just what, exactly, is a greenway? Most dictionaries define greenways as linear, strip-like stretches of relatively undeveloped land which are there for recreation (mostly hiking and biking) or for environmental protection.

These days, it’s hard to summon the will to turn off the news. If you’re like me, you don’t want to miss anything. And these days, you never know what that thing you miss might be.

If you’re like me, you’ve got hobbies. You’ve already figured out that two of mine are hiking and fishing. You may have noticed occasional mentions of ham radio, too, something else I enjoy.
