Odds are, if you’re reading this you already know me. In the blindingly small likelihood that we have never met in person then feel free to stick around. I’ve heard that people love to talk about themselves, and I’ve never been one to claim exceptionalism.

I’m hiking the Appalachian Trail. But you probably knew this. Why am I undertaking this seemingly ludicrous and ego-stroking endeavor? Stay tuned. We might just figure it out together.

Within these digital pages you will witness me screaming into the digital abyss. It may even be in English. The site serves two purposes. Firstly, it is a way of documenting my experiences so interested parties back home can share in some of what I’m doing. Secondly, it is a way for me to archive my thoughts and feelings so that, should I muster up the courage to self-reflect, I have a body of work with which to consult.

So come on! I have a few months and a couple thousand miles to do nothing but commune with nature. It might even be fun.
