These are just a few of my titles. I am also a musician, student, have a big red beard, and I really love black coffee. In 2014 I began backpacking while I was still an Active Duty Marine, and it has changed my entire life. Originally I created this site as a way to catalog a thru-hike of the Appalachian Trail, but it has morphed into a creative outlet for me now. Currently I reside in historic Fredericksburg, Virginia, where I am going to school to become a Nurse. When I’m not studying, you can find me walking through the mountains or drinking coffee and reading a book at the local coffee shop.
