Thomas Diggs

Hi, my name is Thomas. Grew up just outside of Nashville, TN, graduated university, bought a house, got married, and started on a career. Always had a spirit for adventure, but never enough confidence and courage to go for something big. Not long after university, life had a funny way of turning things upside down with a silver lining; I had the opportunity to try something other than the American Dream and chase my own dreams. The marriage ended, sold the house, decided to quit my job, and started setting myself up for the next big thing. I was able to travel all around Tennessee and to the mountains out west several times. When I get back from a trip I immediately start thinking about the next one. This time it will be an adventure on the Appalachian Trail starting the beginning of March 2019. Personal Website: thomasdiggs.com Instagram: thomas.diggs
