I love the great outdoors, and whatever kind of pursuits that get me out there and in it. I have lived in a lot of different places/climates, which has allowed me to sample a wide variety of activities (master of none). I grew up land-locked in Colorado but somehow found a passion for the ocean too. My all-time favorite pursuits are sea kayaking, surfing, and backpacking/thru-hiking.
Beginning the summer of 2017, I quit my job and started thru-hiking "full-time". My hiking resume includes the Colorado Trail ('17/500 miles), New Zealand's Te Araroa ('17-'18/2000 miles), Pacific Crest Trail ('18/2700 miles), Continental Divide Trail ('19/2700 miles), Arizona trail ('19/800 miles), Long trail ('20/270 miles), Grand Enchantment Trail ('21/800 miles), and Appalachian Trail ('21/2200 miles. All combined, I've walked/hiked/backpacked about 12,000 miles in 5 years.
As much as I love the outdoors, I love all the fun gear that makes it more enjoyable. I'm a gear head, with no desire to seek help for my condition. I proudly have a collection of titanium and aluminum stakes. Need I say more.
So if you have a similar affliction, you've come to the right place! You can receive support here but don't expect to find a cure. Your condition may even worsen.
Thank you for feeding my addiction Trailspace!
