Hi guys, my name is Jacob and I'm a physiotherapist from Australia. I'll be trading the sun, surf and sand for 5 months on the Appalachian Training heading SOBO in 2020. I've been drawn to outdoors from a young age and have always toyed with the idea of pushing my limits on a Thru-hike. I've trekked around Australia and South America and I'm excited to tackle my next massive adventure on the AT. Make sure you say G'day if you see me out there!
Hiking for five months in woods can be daunting, right? There's going to be a million thoughts and questions running through your mind. Research and reading has helped reduce my Appalachian Trial anxiety.
