Hi, I'm Chris (Spuggy) and for some unknown reason I have decided to do a NOBO through hike of the Appalachian Trail. I'm 37 years young and from Newcastle upon Tyne, England. I am a Chief Marine Engineer and served 14 years in the Royal Navy as a submariner. My hobbies include rock climbing, skydiving, kayaking, slacklining, bedroom DJing & music production, drinking, partying and I suppose walking now.
