About Conrad Walton

I’m Conrad Walton, a full time resident of Walker. We've lived through being snowed in and power outages. We have no other home. I'm a licensed real estate professional working for RealtyONEGroup, Mountain Desert, here in Prescott. My goal is to give back to the community by providing a common web site to support everyone’s efforts in the Walker area. Because I’ve been a web developer for over 20 years, building web sites is easy for me. I want to help in any way I can. This site is not owned by the WFPA or the WCAA or any other organization. I host it, manage it, and I am completely responsible for it.

The Forest Service says we can build campfires and shoot guns starting on Nov. […]

I’ve received calls asking if Walker is in any danger. The fire is far enough away that it’s very unlikely that anything will threaten our area.
