How exciting is this?! I’ve been wanting to start a blog for quite some time now, and while the theme has evolved as the years have passed, I’ve finally gotten around to actually doing it. *tiny dance party for myself* As most of you may know, I’m going to be starting the Appalachian Trail on March 31st. While I was on the John Muir Trail I decided that three weeks in the wilderness wasn’t enough, I needed more. So I started planning for the AT as soon as I got back to Utah, and here I am only two months away from actually doing it. I’ve gotten almost all of my gear, I’ve been working and saving as much money as I can, and in a little less than two months I’ll be on a plane en route to Georgia, stepping foot onto the AT where I’ll spend the next 4-5 months walking all the way to Maine. It’s going to be difficult, and wet, and I can’t imagine how many mental breakdowns I’m going to have, but I’m still excited. I’m excited to meet new people, see new places, learn new skills, and accomplish new goals. It’s going to be an amazing experience, one I’m excited to share with everyone! So stay tuned for more posts about my preparations, my gear set up, and more!

Welcome to the blogging world! Congratulations on conquering the John Muir Trail; and now, the Appalachian. My wife and I are addicted to trekking (and writing); we have done several long-distance walks in Europe. We are not campers, though, so I am impressed by your hardiness. I wish you the best!
Thank you so much! I really appreciate your support – it’s so nice to connect with people who share the same passions!
