Hey there! We're Zach and Syd, and we are a couple of twenty-somethings that are thru-hiking NOBO on the Appalachian Trail in 2019! Backpacking has been a huge passion for us, and we can't wait to take on the trail together. We work full time as nurses, and are hoping to show all couples our strategy for backpacking as a couple, and how rewarding it can be hiking with a partner. We hope you'll follow along our journey!
