I answer to Katie, or KT, or Penny (when the whisky kicks in). I’m leaving Texas to hike NOBO in 2017. I have 2 gay cats, I like awkward situations, I speak in sarcasm, and if you see someone talking to a squirrel trying to convince it to be their friend, it’s probably me. Please stop and say hi!
So far the biggest surprise I've encountered out here isn't bears or weather, it's the division within this community of crazy hikers.
Literally everything hurts most the time, and I kind of love it.
Death to the blue devil! Long live the new pack.
A big chunk of my first couple days on the AT.
My plan to not starve and the magical cooking koozie that changed my life.
The AT has already humbled me, and I haven't even started.
Ready to embrace the suck in 2017, and maybe tell my family at some point.
