Lauren Brewer

My name is Lauren, and I am a Georgia native currently residing in Lexington, Kentucky awaiting my future dream of hiking the Appalachian Trail southbound beginning July 6th! I will be accompanied by my best bud and husband, Brian. We both love backpacking and spend as much time as we can outdoors. Besides hiking, we enjoy long runs, great beer, awesome bourbon (thanks Kentucky), and epic adventures. We spent our twenties doing the "grown up" thing. You know, getting careers, buying a house, and paying bills... We're ready to go play in the woods for a while.

This is a small introduction on me and why my husband and I will be hiking the Appalachian Trail SOBO and back home to Georgia!
