On the Appalachian Trail (SOBO ’19) I was known as “Swan Dive.” I am about to take yet another Swan Dive and jump into the Te Araroa trail in New Zealand! As a small town Michigander I am excited for this opportunity to hike the entire length of NZ by myself! Bring on the sunshine, the sand, and all of the bushwhacking and river crossings you can imagine. NEW ZEALAND here I come!!
