What to be afraid of


This year I was not able to complete the entire AT, but I got the first 1,405 miles done! Now planning to come back next year to finish. Only 780 miles to go!

My friends have worried so about me hiking alone. They’ve been concerned I might be eaten by a bear or bitten by a snake. Well, those are pretty low on the list of risks.

I'm a professional vagabond. I quit my cubical job in January 2014. Since then, I've hiked the Appalachian Trail, The Camino, and taught English in Vietnam, Turkey, Russia, Spain, Mexico and Peru. I'm exploring the world and you can come too!
