In no particular order, part time: brewer, hiker, kayaker, driver, traveler, photographer, and cook. Someday I'd like change that to full time for one or more of those. I've known about the A.T. for as long as I can remember. My grand parents lived in Harrisburg and hiked sections of it. I'm not sure when I got the notion to do a thru-hike. I'm fairly certain it wasn't in my head upon graduation of H.S. or after getting out of the Navy as those would have been perfect times to do such a thing. Guess I was too worried about getting on with life and doing the "responsible" thing. I want to change that. And I'm hoping 2016 is a good year for a NOBO.
