Greetings! I'm Carl "Professor" Stanfield, and I love backpacking. I studied Wilderness Leadership and Experiential Education at Brevard College in North Carolina, then spent about 3 years living and working at camp in Leavenworth, Washington. After my time there ended, I decided to attempt a thru hike, and in April 2018, I set out on my adventure on the Appalachian Trail, finishing at the end of August 2018. I fell in love with the wondrous life of thru hiking and have decided to pursue it full time. I plan on taking on the PCT with some friends I made on the AT in 2019! Until then, I'll be working at my local outdoor store to save up for the next adventure.
