I discovered backpacking and this wonderful hiking community on the Florida Trail in 2015 and haven’t looked back since. I aim to positively impact other people making every step on the trail count for something more than my own enjoyment. The overall effect of hiking for something bigger than my own personal experience is what I call #HikeWithHeart. Part of that journey includes joining the 2019 Granite Gear Grounds Keeper team!

I hope to see you on the trail and share some of my adventures with the world. Cheers, Josh "Pace Car" Johnson – Instagram: @HikeWithHeart
