Hikers Welcome!

My first hike of longer than one night was 2,189.2 miles of the Appalachian Trail. Talk about starting from scratch! You can imagine the amount of information I had to learn to set myself up for success. On this site, I share what I learned with others who may benefit. Are you a female hiker wanting to attempt a long-distance hike? Are you new to long distance hiking altogether? Let’s go on this adventure together!

“Despite how open, peaceful, and loving you attempt to be, people can only meet you as deeply as they’ve met themselves. This is the heart of clarity.” ~Matt Kahn
