My trail name is Stubbs (due to being 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 plan to thru hike the Pacific Crest Trail in 2018, to eventually get my Triple Crown by completing the Continental Divide Trail sometime after that, and considering teaching abroad in Japan for a year (or more, who knows?).

I am currently writing for”Β The Trek”Β (previously known as “Appalachian Trials”), and I’m making 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 made it over halfway to Boiling Springs, PA and have every intention of conquering the AT in its entirety this time if the odds are in my favor! It’s go time!
