Because who doesn’t want to go on an adventure?

Greetings all!

First off, thank you for reading this and taking the time to look into my story! I really appreciate it! Please follow me for all my updates, stories, adventures, and probably some really stupid stuff, to be honest.


Why leave everything for the A.T.?

This is something I’ve wanted to do for years now! I want to have an adventure of a lifetime and see things I’ve never seen before, meet amazing people, and push myself in everyday possible. I want to reconnect to who I am and what I love. I want to see how God moves in new ways for me in my life and see what shows up for me. Right now seems like the perfect time to go! No money commitments to keep me from going and no school yet either. I have all the gear from years of gathering it from Christmas’ and paying for everything myself for the past 5 years!

Hardest part?

Probably missing my friends and family back home. Being away from everything I’ve known to go on something pretty crazy and new. Pushing my mind and body to limits I’ve never have been before. And not having chinese food just 10 minutes away to I think is gonna be pretty rough on me…

Close friends hiking in Arkansas!

Most excited about?

I am most excited to just see all the different types of wildlife, all the people of the trail world, being a part of that culture, seeing things that I may never get to see again! Excited to see how I’ll be in the end and who I’ll be and what I’ll look like really. I’m excited just for the whole experience and to share it with the world!
