Hello all. My name is Wanderer, aka Jeb. I grew up in a military family and travelled the world as a kid. I am a father, husband, U.S Army Infantry Combat Veteran and an avid outdoorsman. Hiking has provided an avenue of healing for me that I have been unable to find elsewhere. I thru-hiked the Pinhoti trail in 2016 and I did a flip flop thru-hike of Appalachian Trail in 2020. I have my sights set on the Benton Mackaye trail next month and either the Colorado trail in July, or a thru-hike of the PCT starting in April if my permit dreams come true.
Follow for a detailed gear list of what I carried on the Appalachian Trail. This gear took me from the summer heat in Virginia, through tropical storms in New York and into the cold weather in the Smoky Mountains and North Georgia.
