Jack Tracy

Hey! My name is Jack Tracy (24) and I'm a thru-hiker blogging for TheTrek. I've completed well in excess of 10k miles along the AT, PCT, CDT, HDT, MST, FT, and currently the Pacific Northwest Trail (PNT). My few joys in life are derived from science/fantasy fiction and walking really far for no discernable reason. I believe everyone has adventure in their hearts, and some of us see fit to bludgeon it to death with a stick. Others, choose to write.
