My name is Liz, and I'm one of your friendly neighborhood bloggers here at Appalachian Trials. Originally from Western Massachusetts, I am flip-flop hiking the AT this year, beginning in Virginia in May. I love to share my experiences with others, and in general learning as much as I possibly can. I look forward to many years of travel and backpacking ahead of me, and the AT will be an introduction and an initiation into the lifestyle. I hope you find my writing entertaining and informing. Happy Trails.
