Hi! I'm a longtime backpacker who enjoys section hiking. But I've also thru-hiked and vlogged the Benton MacKaye Trail (2016), the Sheltowee Trace (2017), and the Appalachian Trail (2018). My YouTube channel is "Evan's Backpacking Videos," where my long compilation video about my AT thru-hike is closing in on a million views. For more biographical information, see www.EvanSchaeffer.com.
