David Foster, Wayne Aitken & Nelson Dewey

Since the first edition of Blisters and Bliss was published in 1989, more than 35,000 copies in eight editions have been sold worldwide. Success has given us celebrity status out on the trail. Each year, we trade more and more stories around our campfire. Tips 'n Tales is an attempt to share some of our stories.

OR ...check out more of Nelson Dewey's art and writing and perhaps order a cartoon or two.
