  1. Thanks for visiting the new Planetwalk website. We are in the process of building an online community based on walking and the idea that mutual respect of each other will manifest positively in our environment. Our first project is Planetlines.

  2. Heard a smidge of an interview with you on NPR yesterday morning. I was moved enough to look you up on web and am very interested in learning more about your treks in the past and your ongoing commitment to z planet. Consider me a new fan. :)

  3. Dear Mr. John Francis…..I listened to your Ted talk and seventeen years of silence. I was simply stunned and inspired at the same time. We live in an age of continuous distraction and subtle and not so subtle manipulations. I consider your 17 years of Silence a challenge to all concerned citizens of this planet.
    Kind Regards
