Hi! My name is Katie (Gallon Smash) Kommer. I recently completed the John Muir Trail, and am already hungering to find my way back to my truest, stinkiest self.
On the trail, I'm known as gallon smash for my exceptional ability to fall headfirst into a bush or a river, and in the "real world" I'm known as the recent grad who's trying her best, okay?
Combining a passion for thru-hiking with the intrigue of international travel is not as elusive as it seems. Whether it's a guiding trip along the Rim of Africa, or a self-planned trek across eight European nations, the trail awaits.
