Sup y’all!! My name is Kristopher McDill. I am a 36-year-old geography/history teacher. I, along with my wife Kaci, will be attempting a SOBO thru-hike of the AT in 2020. Experiencing the outdoors and helping to educate others are my passions. Follow me and get lost in my adventurous pursuit of life, laughter, and positive vibes.
