A B O U T M E I'm a thirty-something formerly discontented daydreaming cubicle dweller who finally did something about his wanderlust. In 2011, I left home to hike the Appalachian Trail and discovered that my path to happiness includes more trails and less cubicles. Since then I've thru-hiked the Appalachian Trail, Long Trail, John Muir Trail, Wonderland Trail and several shorter trails in more than 30 national parks in the United States. In 2014, I hitchhiked across America, walked across Ireland, Northern Ireland, and Scotland, cycled across England, cycled around Spain, and toured Europe.
