I'm looking forward to an amazing adventure on the Appalachian trail. I am so excited to share my experience with family and friends and/or anyone else who's interested. I feel like I'm ready for the tough days. I'm mostly excited about the beautiful views that I'll get to see. I am 36 years old. Lived most of my adult life in Maine so I'll be happy to get to go back and see the beautiful trees and mountains there. I have three lovely kiddos. One passed away at 6 months in 2017 and it caused me to go into a very deep depression with an addiction to alcohol. Now I'm 6 months sober and ready to start living again. I'm going to do all the things that I can possibly do while on this Earth. I feel like it's my responsibility to have all the adventures that I can for Link. His ashes will be coming with me on the trail. I'll find a spot that is beautiful and quiet. I will spend a little time thinking about him, thinking about life, thinking about the things that I've done and the things that I can still do. Then I'll spread his ashes and let go of all the pain and hurt and let in love, grace and serenity. So I guess I can say that I'm hunting for peace. Perhaps that's the reason why I am hiking this trail.. perhaps it's something else.. maybe it just sounds like a good thing to do.
