Hi! My name is Whitney but those who know me from the trail know me as Tip Toe. Upon completing my thru-hike of the Appalachian Trail in 2014, I relocated to the White Mountains of New Hampshire where I spend most of my time hiking, writing and photographing all my adventures. When I'm not out adventuring I'm working hard slingin' drinks at a local watering hole so I can save up for the next big adventure. My biggest piece of advice to potential thru-hikers: Stop worrying so much, it will all work out in the end. :)
