Hey I'm Michael! I am a twenty one year old bearded adventurer from Baltimore, Maryland. I'm headed down to Georgia on March 1st to start my NOBO thru-hike of the Appalachian Trail. When I'm not dreaming of backpacking all over the country (about 99% of the time), I work as a barista to fund my dreams, I am an avid collector of antiques and oddities, and always have my nose in a history book. I've never had the time to take on an adventure such as the thru hiking the AT but come late February I'll be quitting my job, throwing caution to the wind, and going on a journey of a lifetime!
