On an overnight flight last year, Melissa Hoistion struggled to catch some sleep between Las Vegas and New York. Restless, she reached for a sleep aid: the SkyMall catalogue in the seatback pouch. Theories behind the magazine's unfortunate demise abounded, such as competition from passengers' personal gadgets and in-flight entertainment, including WiFi. Three months later, SkyMall jolted back to life. In April, C&A Marketing, a manufacturer, distributor and online reseller based in New Jersey, saved the in-flight catalogue from the shredder. About a week after the company closed on the deal, I visited its Ridgefield Park headquarters to ask the new owners some critical questions about the legendary catalogue. And what does the future hold for the life-size yeti, SkyMall's unofficial mascot. Doomed by browers I met Chaim Pikarski in a windowless conference room off a display area filled floor-to-ceiling with the company's own creations (Ivation, which makes design-centric stuff) and products related to its licences (Polaroid) and... I was upfront with the executive vice-president: "I have never purchased anything from SkyMall".
Starting at Eartham Wood, Vincent Hallett makes straight for Halnaker Hill along Stane Street. After walking like Romans a more leisurely route is followed over Long Down through Eartham to a Countess’s favourite picnic spot. Turn right along the marked bridleway to meet a minor road, just beyond a metal bar gate. Enter this woodland named The Rough and proceed along a ¾ mile stretch of Stane Street, initially beneath trees then through coppiced hazel and a more open climbing section with views across farmland. It is evident on this first section that the road was raised on a high embankment known as an agger, bounded by side ditches 85 feet apart. Cross a stile and descend down through Bushy Copse to arrive at another stile giving access to the A285. Halnaker Windmill can be glimpsed on the hill ahead right where the walk is heading. Vehicles travel at high speed along this straight section. Re-join the route of Stane Street by taking the footpath from the layby across a stile. The rising path follows power poles to a second stile where it becomes enclosed. Continue ahead, cross a third stile and in 150 yards take the footpath right over a fourth stile adjacent a metal gate. The top of Halnaker Hill is a scheduled ancient monument as it is the location of a Neolithic earthwork structure known as a 'causewayed enclosure'.
