I head into a town once every week or so to resupply, take a shower, do laundry, sleep in a bed, gorge at a restaurant, or some combination thereof. In no particular order, here are some pics of town life from the first half of my trip.
I thru hiked the 2200 mile Appalachian Trail in 2017 with zero prior backpacking experience. I began at my personal rock bottom following divorced, and finished feeling more at peace with my life than ever before. As a proud queer man, I advocate for increased diversity in the outdoors world. I'm a Tour Director in Alaska, currently house sitting in Fairbanks for the winter while I work on my first book.
