David Smith

My name is David AKA Wazo. I'm a planning 2021 PCT thru-hike starting in mid-April. Prior to the PTC, I plan to spend 4 to 5 weeks on the AT going NOBO from Roan Mountain, TN. My initial plan was a AT thru-hike. When the PTCA announced they were issuing permits for 2021, I could not resist. I live in Phoenix with my husband and our pet snail, Junior Ranger. I like to backpack, hike, road bike, read, and get up every morning to watch the sun come up from our perch 22 floors above Central Phoenix. I volunteer for a homeless program and, most recently, giving COVID injections at a mass immunization site. Thanks for checking out my blog.
