Hey! I’m Jen! I am from Southwestern Illinois. I love being outside.
You can find me volunteering my free time to outdoor causes, hiking, camping, obsessing over related gear, enjoying ALL kinds of music, writing, attempting to learn photography, traveling whenever & wherever I can, making and eating good food, sipping on a cold Moscow Mule, and overall; loving and spending as much time as possible with my family and my dogs.You’ll see mentioned frequently, my best friend and husband Brian (aka: B or his trailname Turkey!)
I come here to Jenny the Trailhead a few times a month to organize pictures, thoughts, stories and future plans; be it a day hike, a weekend trip to a state park, an outing as an Ambassador with my Midwest Chapter Mountain Chicks, or preparing for our next big trip. I also enjoy reviewing and highlighting local Missouri and Illinois trails.
I was chosen this year to join Epic Social Adventures as a 2018 Adventurer! I’ll keep you in the loop with blog posts and events that I will be part of with Epic Social!
As of January 2018, I became a brand Ambassador for Honey Stinger.
In July 2018, B and I will be taking 2 weeks to drive cross country, camping in new places as we go to finally explore some of the Eastern Sierra, and hopefully summit Mt. Whitney via Mt. Whitney Trail.
In November of 2016 we bought a
junky old “character filled” 1996 Ford E-150 Clubwagon we have rigged into a camper and travel van we named Hank the Tank!
Thanks for following along. See you out there!
