Hey guys! I grew up in Colorado and did my 4 years away at college before getting back to CO as quickly as possible. I grew up doing your average family outdoor activities (camping, hiking, etc) and slowly got more into mountaineering towards the end of high school. My freshman year at Williams College I went on a 4 night backpacking trip for the first time as part of freshman orientation...I never would have guessed during that trip that backpacking would become my life for the next 12-18 months! I've been working as an accountant for the past 4 years and this past September I finally decided to take a leap of faith to quit my job and go for the first-ever Continuous Triple Crown! I will be hopping on the PCT going NOBO in April 2019 and following it up with a SOBO hike of the CDT and ending with a NOBO hike of the AT; all while connecting the 3 trails bike-packing! I can't wait to get this hike started and hopefully sharing as much as possible with all of you guys!
