About

My name is Mike but on the trail I go by CLOWN. You only get the story about the name if we hike together. In 2002 I Thru-hiked the Wonderland Trail around Mount Rainier in Washington. 2004 I Thru-hiked the Appalachian Trail and between 2011 and 2012 I finished the Tahoe Rim Trail around Lake Tahoe. My goal for 2014 is the John Muir Trail. I work in an outfitter part time and have used, and I like to say test many different pieces of gear. I'm a gear geek for a lack of a better term. 

 My favorite spot around here is the Mount Rogers and Grayson Highlands area in Virginia. I have visited dozens of National Parks and I'm a big fan of pretty much anything west of the Mississippi River even though I live in the East. I love the diversity that we have in this country that we have to enjoy. Hope to see you on the trail.

Happy Trails!
