Hello, I'm about to attempt a flip flop thruhike of the Appalachain Trail, starting in mid June 2024 planning to complete mid-November. I'm about to retire from a career in education, consulting, and other things, and will get started at the NY/CT border, head to ME, flip to the NY/CT border and head to Springer. I have always loved adventuring and can't wait to get started on the big one! My trail name is Lucky as I know how lucky I am to be able to go on this journey!
