Eric and Hayley

Eric and Hayley grew up less than 20 minutes apart in small towns on the North Shore of Massachusetts. It took 27 years for them to meet each other and have been together for the past 8 years. We’re hiking the Appalachian Trail Southbound in 2022. Eric hiked the AT northbound in 2011 and was known as “Mountain Dew”. Hayley has always enjoyed the outdoors and got into backpacking soon after meeting Eric. We are excited to start this adventure on June 27th.
