Rhys Hora

Howdy All, I'm Rhys, thanks for stoppin' by. If you've made it this far it means you just read all the gibberish I've written above, and for that I'm sorry. I owe you a beer. I'm hiking the the Appalachian Trail because, short answer, I think there's more livin' to be squeezed out of life. Thanks for reading, if you have any questions or want to nerd out about gear, hiking, or shenanigans (I love shenanigans!) feel free to reach out via email or facebook. See you on the trail!
