Howdy! I'm Sara and I will be setting out in March 2016, with my trusty mutt Jetta, to achieve my childhood dream of thru hiking the Appalachian Trail. I'm a 26 year old Texas born and Tennessee raised adventurer and lover of nature. I have a special passion for animals and make my living as a veterinary technician. I could count the number of overnight backpacking trips I've done on just 2 hands but I enjoyed the heck out of each of them, so I've decided to take 6 months away from my wonderful life and amazing husband to hike the entire 2,200 miles of the AT. I foresee this being one crazy adventure so stay tuned!
