Hi everyone! My name is David, and this April I am setting off on a NOBO thru hike of the AT. I am from beautiful Charlottesville, Virginia in the heart of the Virginia Blue Ridge and Shenandoah's.
When I am not outside seeking some adventure, I can be found working the friendly sky's as flight paramedic on a medical helicopter.
My pancreas doesn't make insulin and we have a love/ hate relationship. However I have a great insulin pump and glucose monitor that pick up the slack of my lazy ass pancreas.
I am excited to share my thru hike adventure with y'all (hows that for a southern transplant). So come follow me along as I walk through the woods and write about the good and bad days, thru hiking with diabetes and occasionally reassuring my mother that I am alive and well.
