Hi everyone! My name is Chris, but my friends call me Tucker. I am 37 (soon to be 38) years old, and I live in Richmond, VA. I recently left my teaching career after more than a decade in the classroom, and I am looking forward to heading out on a new adventure and seeing what life has to offer. Time to hit the trail! If you want to follow along with the adventures - both on the trail and off - check me out on Instagram: @tuck.on.trail. When I'm not hiking around the east coast I am usually on other adventures with my wife Amy, and our dog, Nala. We love to travel, eat, and experience everything that life around us has to offer.
