I’m a 27 year old solo female thru hiker who has been in love with thru hiking since 2017. Back in 2017 I hiked 1300 miles of the PCT in between semesters of college. When COVID hit in 2020 I lost my job and wound up traveling the US in a vehicle for 2 years! Since then I went back and hiked the entire PCT in 2022, this time doing a SOBO/flip-flop hike. This year in 2023 I set out to walk “Bama to Baxter”. Which connects the Pinhoti Trail, parts of the Benton Mackaye Trail, and Appalachian trail. Along the way I decided that I wanted to hike much further than that. After meeting an ECT hiker in Vermont I decided I would continue on after Katahdin and complete the International Appalachian trail (1500 miles). I completed the International Appalachian Trail which went across Maine, New Brunswick, Quebec, Prince Edward Island, Nova Scotia, and Newfoundland. Then went back in Alabama to pick up where I left off in February. Now I’m hiking South all the way to Key West, Florida. Then I will have completed the entire Eastern Continental Trail (ECT). When I finish I will be the 2nd woman in history to hike the entire ECT from Key West➡️Newfoundland.
