Michael Beierle

Hey-hey, how ya doin? So my name is Michael, I'm 39 years old, and I'll be thru-hiking the AT, SOBO, in 2019...shortly after I turn 40 in May!!! I have been calling Roanoke, VA home for the past decade or so, but I was born and raised in Washington state with a chainsaw in one hand and a NES controller in another hand, and then in my other hand there was a book, and in the other one there was a chef knife, and in the last hand there was a comic book...all that stuff. Yes that's five hands. Lets move on, shall we.
