So I’ve always known I was meant for something more than the traditional ‘Grow up, go to college, get a job, start a family’ routine. I crave adventure way to much to settle down just yet, and what started out as a major setback turned out to be the shifting point in my life. I realize now what I need to do to start my adventures. I still don’t really know what I’m working towards or how I will get there, but I feel in my heart that I need to be doing this. I don’t know how I know, but I KNOW that I am supposed to start this 6 month, exhausting, smelly, sweaty, uncomfortable, freezing, hot, hungry, and amazing experience. The mountains, the Appalachian Trail, is calling, and I’ve gotta go!
