Hey, I'm Mismatch, I enjoy long scenic hikes through the woods and a chilled bottle of Mike's Hard Lemonade. AT '15 ME-GA, and setting off for a PCT thru hike attempt in May.

I have my sights set on hiking the Triple Crown and I'm excited to share all the ups and downs of this journey with you all.
