I always thought thru-hiking was something that other people did, until it struck me one day that the notion that thru-hiking is "beyond me" is completely made up in my noggin. So I'm embarking on the Long Trail this summer - to get myself out of an inactive rut in life, to reconnect with my home state of Vermont, and to see what questions the trail might answer. Here's to going into the unknown! P.S. I might post some videos about my adventure over on my YouTube channel: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCY9JBn9OGKagxWQMFTidyjA.
