Kai Meka

Hi there! I'm Kai, I am an adventurer, and an aspiring travel blogger/photographer who currently resides in Southern Maine. I am going to attempt an ultralite SOBO thru-hike of the AT, starting about a month after my 20th birthday in July 2017, with my dog, Cheyenne, joining me for as much of the trail as possible. The ultimate goal is to hike over 2000 miles, and to have as much fun, and as many new experiences as possible in the process!
