Hi, I'm Björn, from Kiel, Northern Germany. I'm a 35-year-old Civil Engineer and will attempt a Nobo on the PCT in 2023. As an alien, there's lots of stuff to do, before you lock your house in Germany and move to the U.S. for half a year. I love being outside, hiking, climbing, running, and swimming. Cooking, Baking, and dehydrating Food is also a passion of mine.

How is it possible to leave everything you own to thru-hike a foreign country? Let me explain our financial strategy to you.
How my German heritage and stories about Hobos and craftsmen inspired me to do long-distance hiking and search for a free living.
Germans, they are everywhere. They even blog for the Trek now! Hi, I'm Björn. You can follow my preparations for my PCT-Attempt in 2023.
