I am a 23 year old kid born and raised in South Bend, IN. Graduated college in 2016 and survived 2 months in an accounting internship. Since then I haven't spent more than 5 weeks in the same state. I am addicted to road trips and have been to 49 states in my 93 Buick (help me get her to Hawaii). I make money when I am home by substitute teaching and scalping tickets at every Notre Dame football game. I love having fun, playing games, helping others and listening to good stories. My best friend rose from the grave one time (true story). I am hiking the Appalachian Trail NoBo starting March 26th and taking a couple weeks off the trail in May to go on a mission trip to Guatemala to help some children there (currently accepting financial support).
At first I planned to hike SoBo for more solitude and because I am going on a mission trip to Guatemala May 6th-13th. But after reading and researching about life on the AT I decided I couldn't wait any longer, so my new plan is to hike NoBo on March 26th, leave the trail for the mission trip and pick up right where I left off when I get back.
