Will Skipworth

My name is Will. I'm hiking the Appalachian Trail in 2024. I've long been a hiking and outdoors enthusiast, but until this year, I've never taken on such a long trip. However, I couldn't be more excited. Outside of hiking, I grew up in Texas, but now call the Midwest my home. I'm a Chicago-based journalist (on haitus while I hike) who has written for Forbes, PolitiFact and a string of local newspapers including The Times of Northwest Indiana, The Washington Missourian and more.
