After coming down with a bad case of unemployment, the mountains started calling. I followed that feeling all the way from Pennsylvania to Montana. After a few months cutting my backpacking/hiking teeth in the Rockies, I moved back east and found a home in the Green Mountains of Vermont - just 8 miles from the AT. While the logistics of everyday life bar me from following through with Springer fever... for now, in 2021 I will be thru-hiking the New England Trail (NET) in April and the Foothills Trail in September.
