Emily and Parkes

We have never been very good at listening to society. They told us we were too young to get married, but we did it anyways. We were told to get good paying jobs, buy a house, have kids, and work hard to get that promotion. We said screw that, we got an education, we got that job, we bought that house, and realized there is so much more to life, and so much more to the definition of "success". So we are quitting our jobs, selling our house, and leaving it all to hike the PCT together, as husband and wife. Through better or worse. We got tired of being inspired by others, it's time to be inspiring.
