Where to start. I am 32 years old. I live just south of Boston in good ole Massachusetts. I do a lot of hiking and backpacking throughout New England year-round, and concentrate most of my hikes in the White Mountains of New Hampshire. I dabble in craft beers and fine scotch quite often. I enjoy live music, long walks on the beach, Spongebob, and karate. I'm pretty spontaneous and am always game for an adventure. I will be starting my hike on April 26th at Harpers Ferry. I am going to complete Harpers Ferry to Katahdin, then go back and finish the rest of the the Long Trail. Next Year I will Complete Harpers to Springer. On July 4th me and my fiance are going to get married somewhere along the AT in New Hampshire.
