My name's Spark - a lover of good coffee, sci-fi novels, metal, walking and adventuring. I just finished my triple crown last year and am still looking forward to other adventures in the future. I'm originally from Atlanta but have made Asheville, North Carolina my current home base. For the time being, I make fart jokes while teaching teenagers how not to be assholes working in wilderness therapy here in the mountains of western North Carolina.
