Jambo!Jambo! I am an Appalachian Trail thru-hiker who is braving the 2,193 miles with my six kids in tow. Starting in Georgia in the lovely month of April (now 2021), we are walking back to our home state of Maine. When I am not hiking, you can find me skiing, running and exploring the mountains of NH and Maine.
