Hey everybody! My name is Alexander Newlon or just Noodle for short. I'm a perpetual daydreamer, a cannabis and human rights activist, a Eagle Scout and solo adventurer. I'm epileptic and will be thru hiking the Appalachian Trail NOBO this April to show myself and others that we all CAN accomplish our dreams and turn them into reality! By completing one of my long time dreams, I hope to inspire others to follow their dreams. Get inspired and explore your local trails!
