My name is Jamie Bone. My mother describes me as feral. My husband loves me because I'm wild. My friends say I have a way of allowing others to be themselves. Whatever the reason, I'm fortunate and grateful to have wonderful people in my life while I explore this playground called Earth. If I come across you on the street, I'll probably want to hear your story because I love talking to strangers. Loves: backpacking, animals, food, art, games, learning, naps, love

This is one of the most exciting journeys of my life. And I haven't told anyone about it!
Have you ever considered bringing something insanely luxurious on the trail? Insanely heavy? Don't lie to me. I'm about to make a HEAVY mistake.
