The mountains are calling me everyday and in 2020 I will return. I’ve been hiking all of my life and backpacking since I was 23. I have 2,000 miles of experience, mostly from a long distance AT hike last summer. I’m not a gear head and just prefer what works for me. I’d rather be penniless and on the trail then unhealthy off of it. See you on the trail, in the woods, and on top of a mountain next summer. I’ll be the one with the knee brace on my left knee!
