Currently residing in Chicago, pretending to be an adult, and trying to turn my life into a folk ballad. I can only cook 3 things. I enjoy long walks across countries.
If the thought of waking up hours before the sun in a frozen sleeping bag and sliding into wet shoes for the 3rd consecutive morning just to make it to the summit for sunrise fills you with an indescribable peace, then I’m sure you know what I mean.
The first time I told someone I was dropping out of college to hike the Appalachian Trail, their response was a confused pause, a furrowed brow, a tilting of the head, and “but….why?”
