I'm Thirteen! My hobbies include walking immeasurably long distances, binge watching classic horror films, and tabletop gaming. I hiked SOBO in 2019 on the Appalachian Trail and will be back at it in August because living a "normal" life and "post- trail readjustment" didn't work out so well for me the first time around. Also Blogging from the Benton MacKaye Trail this Spring!

The truth was that no more than 3 days into my Southbound thru hike of the AT I was struggling with the massive undertaking that is walking all the way from Maine to Georgia.
