Hello all. My name is Wanderer, aka Jeb. I grew up in a military family and travelled the world as a kid. I am a father, husband, U.S Army Infantry Combat Veteran and an avid outdoorsman. Hiking has provided an avenue of healing for me that I have been unable to find elsewhere. I thru-hiked the Pinhoti trail in 2016 and I did a flip flop thru-hike of Appalachian Trail in 2020. I have my sights set on the Benton Mackaye trail next month and either the Colorado trail in July, or a thru-hike of the PCT starting in April if my permit dreams come true.
