Yo! My name is Niraj and I am a genuine backpacking fanatic. I am currently a junior at Towson University & am a transfer student from DePaul University. I live in Silver Spring MD. I love reading books almost as much as hiking, watch movies until my eyes melt and have a perpetual craving for spicy food. I'm a thru-hiker hopeful for 2014 and am anxious to learn as much as I can before I set off.
