Hi, I’m Joey, trail name “Moon Pie.” I grew up in Florida with sand and sea in my soul, sailing, camping, and exploring this beautiful world. After raising a family in Georgia, my spirit of adventure demanded to be set free.
I knocked out 1800 miles of an Appalachian Trail thru-hike in 2018. Now I’m busy filling in my gaps and working on a new end-to-end adventure: The Long Trail in Vermont.
Here on The Trek I blog about hiking, gear, and my favorite trails. You can also find me on You Tube @JoyfulRambler.
