Hi my name is Loren. I will be flip-flop hiking the Appalachian Trail (AT) this next spring. I am from Northeast Ohio and spend most of my days working, learning or living the island life, up on Kelleys Island in Lake Erie. Sometimes I take small photography jobs and occasionally a couple of classes. I enjoy boating, swimming and sometimes sailing, even though I'm pretty horrible at it. I will be hiking with my best friend as we try to hike as much of the trail as we can with our time crunch.
