Pie

I'm A British Guy, living in Finland and hiking long trails in America! I've been travelling all over the world in the last few years. I had an adventure Thru-Hiking the AT in 2015 and will hopefully be having some more in 2017 on the Continental Divide Trail. I'll be blogging all about my preparations for the CDT in the build up to the hike and will be blogging from the trail in June.
