My trail name is Stubbs (due to being stubborn and vertically challenged). I love to hike and travel so much that I’d like to make a living out of it (one can dream, eh?). I previously wrote for “The Trek” (formerly, “Appalachian Trials”), and I reached Maine’s summit (Mount Katahdin), during my second Appalachian Trail (AT) thru hike attempt with my husband and best friend, after a pelvic fracture forced me off trail in 2016.

I’ve already been on a number of road tripping adventures, more notably, our cross-country trip living in a van down by the river. And we took a three-month adventure abroad throughout Nepal, India and Southeast Asia (stories coming soon!). We’re currently broke and back in the states, saving some much needed cash money for our next expedition. What do we have in mind? Currently, we’re planning to thru hike the Arizona Trail, Colorado Trail and maybe a few other shorter routes in the not-so-distant future.
