Welcome! I started my love for the outdoors back in Scouts and later joined the Marines where I got to travel and explore some new places after that I went to college. I thought college was going to be my thing, turns out, it wasn't. Aside from going to school I also started working as an EMT. Between the two I was tired. So, I decided to put on some shoes and wander the desert. Follow along as I bring you through the middle of Arizona by way of the Arizona Trail starting in February.
