Jeremy G is a military veteran and enthusiastic hiker. Starting in Hawaii, Jeremy began the Barefoot Hikers, a social group aimed at trail restoration, history and conservation while building friendships. With some 300 hike events over nine years, the group reached 17,000 Barefoot Hikers without injury or fatalities (very rare in Hawaii). In 2016, Jeremy transitioned into the civilian world with hopes of continuing his hobby as more of a lifestyle. He set out to cover two of the National Scenic Trails, AT and the FNST. Follow along with the OG Hawaii 'Barefoot Hiker' as he attempts the AT!

With the rains returned, the quiet of nature helps me adjust to the aftershock of Trail Days. The weekend was packed with amazing and wonderful
Mile 460. As I reflect, I left my job in Hawaii over a year and a half ago. It was a hard transition to hang up my Navy uniform and pursue school.
This weekend, Thru-Hikers encountered the Appalachian Pine Mixer at Overmountain Shelter, a trail magic event like no other!
