Hi…My name is Zipsss!

Trail names are a thing. You meet so many people hiking, the nicknames are super helpful…I can remember those, but real names are a struggle.

I’ve had three names in my lil’ earthling life now.  Born Annemarie. Miriam for two years in Morocco. And now Zipsss.

There were multiple moments that lead to Zipsss:

First, my tent has a lot of zippers. That’s a fact that was pointed out to me by Chuckwagon after camping next to him. Lots of noise getting in and out of the tent for that 2 AM tinkle. 🤣

Second, everything in my pack is in its own Ziplock bag. I am SO waterproof. I’m also noisy going through my pack/nightly routine at the end of the day.

Third, contrary to all the noise my zips make, I am pretty shy when I first meet people. 🤐

Forth, catch me zipping on by ya on the trail…some days at least, haha.

✌️ Zipsss
