Aidan Tierney

Coming to a Trail Town near your soon! My name is Aidan, I'm a 29 year old (30 during my thru-hike - Birthday Cakes will be graciously accepted), British guy from a town called Abingdon, who can't think of any better way to spend up to 6 months than sore, wet, tired, and taking in some incredible nature. Spanish enthusiast - 'Nos podía haber matado. O peor, expulsado.' Vegan - There're fruit trees on the trail, right? Free Spirit - I have a tattoo, and do yoga and stuff.
