Hi! The name's Amanda. I’m 23 and a recent college graduate with an obsession for all things nature. I hold a degree in Wildlife Biology and am currently working for the Forest Service. Since being dragged into the world of the outdoors by my best friend, I’ve been aspiring to thru-hike the Appalachian trail. It all comes down to March of 2016 where we will both be venturing off to complete our 2,185 mile goal. Along the way I’ll be blogging and sharing about my mountain adventures, nature encounters , and all of the trail fails that come with living outdoors for five months.
Thru hiking the Appalachian Trail is obviously on my lifetime bucket list. I actually have 50 different items, so far, which I'd liked to complete before I die. They vary in degrees of rationality ranging from one to Pi, and as I started to plan for this one, I noted that there were certain things I wanted to complete before ending my thru hike. From this epiphany was born The Thru Hiker's Bucket List... or at least my version of it. I encourage you to read through it and then compile your own!
I'm not quite sure when the A.T. fever set in. Maybe it was when I purchased my A.T. planning
