Hey there! My name's Willy. I grew up hiking in the Shenandoah's and always dreamed of attempting an AT thru-hike. After 5 years of hating my corporate job and with my 30th birthday fast approaching (quarter-life crisis, anyone?) I'm finally doing the damn thing - quit my job, moved out of CA, and am coming home to the welcoming bosom of the Appalachians. I'm blogging with the goal of one day supporting myself as a writer.
