Hi, I'm Troy, AKA- TOMCAT. After I thru-hiked the AT in 1999, I never worked full time again. Since then I have hiked the Long Trail, Cohos Trail, parts of the PCT, much of the Colorado Trail, numerous other backpacking trips, and countless day hikes. I enjoy all things outdoors including hiking/backpacking, mountain biking, skiing, xc skiing, kayaking, and writing about my experiences. You can read about my adventures at www.tomcatsadventures.com .
