Hiiiii! My name is Hedy. I am a current Chattanoogan setting out on the Appalachian Trail this year with my best friend and co-conspirator in ridiculousness, Julia. I am a semi-retired elementary school teacher, excellent pasta maker, fast-talker, and wannabe Mainer. I am eager to share my hiking story with you!
