I am a husband and father to a wonderful wife and daughter and absolutely love being around them both as they complete me and make me a better person. I have wanted to hike the Appalachian Trail and Pacific Crest Trail for years but am at a point in life where they are both around 5 years away.
Since I have all the time in the world to plan and prepare I figured that I should just share all this information in one place for others who have a chance to go before I do. Thats why this website was born, hoping to help others on their planning and training to become hiker trash.
I would love to hear from people who find my site and have questions or additions they believe would be helpful to other thru hikers. I have a page over here to contact me
and this will allow me to organize information to update more frequently!
