Thru-hiker Amnesia

Thru-hiker Amnesia

One year ago today, I stepped foot on Springer Mountain, the Appalachian Trail’s southern terminus in Georgia, and began walking north. It feels like a lifetime ago. In the same breath, I remember everything about that first day. The blindingly white snow that lined the road en route. The waterfalls of ice on the treacherous … Continue reading

Mail drops, gear, and food: updates galore!

Mail drops, gear, and food: updates galore!

Hey y’all, dropping a quick (not so quick?) line to address some questions I’ve been getting.

When I was growing up and nearing college age, the point at which many teenagers begin thinking about drinking, my mom would always say, “Why waste your … Continue reading

Bangin’ Box of Barney Butter

Bangin’ Box of Barney Butter

Right after Thanksgiving, I wrote a review on Barney Butter. A company out of California, Barney Butter makes the only almond butter available on the market with blanched almonds (skins removed), which lends itself to an extremely smooth texture reminiscent of peanut butter. In addition, the almond butter is manufactured in a completely peanut-free facility, … Continue reading
