Samantha Olthof

You can call me Samwise (or Sam). I attempted to thru-hike the PCT in 2017, but it turned into more of a LASH (long-ass section hike). I've done the desert and Oregon, and am planning to get back as soon as possible to wrap up the rest of the trail. I am a proud Canadian, and I revel in living in the woods with my partner and puppy. You can check out more of my writing and gratuitous puppy pics at
