AT Class of 2016! We loved life on the trail and didn't stop there. New Zealand called and we spent 3 months volunteering on local farms and hiked many trails on both islands. We've settled back in Arkansas where we have section hiked the Ozark Highlands Trail, Buffalo River Trail, and plan to section hike the 200+ mile Ouachita Trail in 2020. We also provide nutrition consults for hikers with our site Charge the Trail: Nutrition for Long-Distance Hikers.
