Stephanie Brummett

Hi! Hey! My name is Stephanie, and I'm gearing up (pun very much in-tent-ed... I mean, intended... MUCH eye-roll) for my solo NOBO thru-hike of the Appalachian Trail in 2017. I'm from beautiful San Francisco and am a cliche san franciscan with a love of yoga, rock climbing, waiting in long lines for brunch (our favorite hobby), complaining about rent increases, and "literally freezing" in 50 degree weather. I grew up backpacking and hiking in the Sierras and am eager to get my feet on the ground over in the Appalachian Mountains. You can follow me along on Instagram (@stephbrummett), twitter (@sabrummett), and here!
