Hi, my name is Dema - rhymes with… FEMA? Eh, that may still be ambiguous, let’s try it again phonetically. Hi, my name is “Dee-muh”, and I instantly forget everything interesting and unique about myself when asked to write a bio or introduction of any kind. I am 29 years old, and I am attempting a 2024 thru-hike of the Appalachian Trail, northbound from Georgia to Maine. Much to my family’s discomfort, I decided an excellent way to celebrate the end of my 20s and start of my 30s was by sleeping on a pad of air in a fabric box in the woods for 6 months. So here we are... sleeping on a pad of air... in a fabric box... in the woods... FOR 6 MONTHS. I am excited to share this adventure with you. Thanks for reading!
If there is nothing that gets your blood pumping quite like a solid planning spreadsheet, this post is for you.
How does a chronic people-pleaser end up finding herself leaving her job to go live in the woods for 6 months? You know, I am wondering that as well.
