Mike and Grace

Mike and Grace have travelled three continents together on some truly life-changing adventures. In April 2015 they will begin a NOBO thru-hike of the AT, arguably the most difficult thing they have attempted. While thru-hiking, Grace will be writing and recording a ukulele album called "Trail Mix." Mike will be carrying nerdy talismans and hoping people start conversations with him.
