My name is Jackson. I'm a PCT thru-hiker, full-time van lifer off trail, and a lover of the outdoors. In 2021 I completed the Sierra High Route, 650 MIles of NorCal on the PCT and I'm attempting a SOBO AT hike starting at the end of August. When I'm not hiking I live in Southern Utah in my Chevy Astrovan working as an outdoor guide, eat a lot of ramen noodles and avocados, and try to play outside every day hiking, climbing, or canyoneering. My favorite vegetable is the yam because you've got to gas up the Yamborghini at dinner.
