I am recently retired and about to start my first thru hike. It is my hope to begin a NOBO trek of the Appalachian Trail spring of 2023. It would be an understatement to say I was just a little nervous at the prospect of pursuing such a daunting adventure. I look forward to sharing my progress with family, friends and fellow hiking enthusiasts. I welcome your moral support and look forward to sharing my experiences.
