There’s 20130908-070546.jpg me in the middle, with trail brothers by my side on top of one of the greatest mountains in the thruhiking world. We came to be there after completing 2,160 miles on foot in five months and two weeks on The Appalachian Trail and earning the title of Thruhikers.

I am British born and raised with no real background in the outdoor world apart from the odd bit of family camping in the British countryside and previous to committing to hiking the Appalachian Trail no real hiking experience.

I have well and truly become hooked on the simple task of putting one foot in front of the other.

I now plan on thruhiking the Pacific Crest Trail and Continental Divide Trail and achieving the Triple Crown hoping this will give me enough experience to try perhaps some more exotic hiking trails from around the world.
