In 2013 Jordana quit her job, moved out of her apartment, and flew down to Georgia to thru hike the Appalachian Trail. She wrote about her experiences on this blog before, during, and after her trek – feel free to comb old posts to learn more about her preparation and A.T. trek, starting with her first blog post: Welcome to my Appalachian Trail 2013 Thru-Hike Blog. Having spent five years working for the same employer and three years in grad school at night, she was soooo ready to shake things up. She hiked northbound beginning on Springer Mountain in Georgia on March 7, 2013 and hiked the 2,185.9 miles to Mt. Katahdin in Maine in six months and eleven days, finishing on September 18, 2013.
Now that she’s done with her A.T. thru-hike, Jordana is contemplating new adventures and revisiting the question, “What am I going to do with my life?” She’ll let you know when she’s figured it out.
Jordana wasn’t really sure about writing in the third person, but she thought it would be kind of fun. And to confirm, yeah, it is kind of fun.
