Jack Tracy (25) is a thru-hiker blogging for TheTrek. They have completed well in excess of 11k miles along the AT, PCT, CDT, HDT, MST, FT, and most recently, the PNT. Their few joys in life are derived from science/fantasy fiction and walking really far for no discernable reason. They believe that everyone has adventure in their hearts, and want to share their own journeys in hope of inspiring others to live the lives they want to live; no putting off dreams for tomorrow.
