Hello, internet neighbor! You may know me personally and have arrived at this blog hoping to live vicariously through me and my soon to be numerous posts of high adventure (e.g. Mom) or you happened upon my blog randomly because you 1) have an interest in the Appalachian Trail or 2) mistyped a google query and wound up clicking my link out of curiosity. Regardless, welcome! My wife, Lauren, and I are two relatively young (30’s) outdoor enthusiasts who, two years ago, decided to take on the Appalachian Trail. Since then, we’ve done everything within our means to make it a reality. Today, we’re doing it and you - you lucky dog - can follow along! So, thanks for stopping by to read and share in this experience with us. Whether you came knowing what you’d find or arrived at the site by accident, we’re excited to expose you to the wonders of the A.T.!
Number of cats thru-hiking with their owners: 1 Number of dogs: 12 (rough estimate) Number of lost dogs named “Castro” rescued by day
Last night, my wife, Lauren, and I slept in a bed. A large one. Beneath a warm comforter. Our heads atop pillows. We hadn’t planned on this luxury.
