Linnea Delucchi

My name is Linnea and I am one of the many love child's of our great God Zeus. I kinda wish my mom was Hera, but my mortal mom is pretty tight. In reality, I grew up in the swanky suburban town of Fair Oaks, along the American River. I spent my summers floating down the river, backpacking, day hiking, and swimming back and forth too many times in a 25 yard pool. In the winters, we skied North Lake Tahoe every weekend we could make it up. I still like all of those things and got the bug to hike the PCT in 2017. Somehow, I managed to complete it and am now addicted. Stoked to see what hike I choose next! Until then, writing, skiing, and traveling await.

Decided that waiting a week to give a synopsis on everyday uses way too much memory power and requires way too much thumb dexterity typing on this
