Apologies & Adventures

It’s been far too long since I’ve posted on here, and for that I apologize. Life has taken on a craziness of it’s own and time seems to be flying by with little down time! I’m not going to complain though! It’s been wonderful (albeit slightly exhausting). So what’s new? Things are busy! I have…

Happy Anniversary!

Things have been busier than normal at work, I’ve been working more hours than normal, so I apologize for the lack of posts lately, but things are beginning to slow down for a little bit so I’ll be back in full force soon! That being said, I’ve still been finding the time to get outside.…

Preparations

Next year I plan on thru hiking the AT Southbound. Solo. Maine to Georgia. Being as my family lives in North Carolina and Georgia I felt that it would give me something to work towards, instead of walking further and further away from home I’ll be walking towards it.

My Bucket List

I’ve got a pretty long list of trails I’d like to accomplish. And it keeps on growing. It is a lot of trails, there are lot on here that I’d honestly be happy to do just a section of the trail rather than the whole thing. But it would be pretty amazing to step foot…
