It seems this is the week that I’m sharing information about old friends. Brenda Hill, my co-author of the three books we have and a frequent contributor to this blog, shared a link to an article about our friend, Ed Reynolds. It was so interesting; I wanted to share it with our readers.

Thanks to Adventurers Club for publishing. Ed is always traveling or doing volunteer work. If you need a helping hand, his smiling face and body are willing to chip in and work. On a cruise conference I was running, it was Ed I could count on for whatever was needed. With 75 people, his list stayed full

I hope you enjoy.

If you have someone in your life that you feel is outstanding and would like us to consider featuring, please send me information via our contact form. ~MDH

Travelin’ man has visited nearly every country in the world.

Ed figures if you’re going to travel halfway around the world to see how people live, you should get in the dirt with them to really know.

Ed finally spent the last of the $400,000 he set up in a travel account from the sale of his late mother’s house in Lompoc at a hot time in the housing market in 2006.
