I am a happily married gal from Southwest Illinois. I love the outdoors, hiking, camping, related gear, music, writing, pretending to know how to take photos, travel, good food, Moscow Mules, family and my dogs.
I am a brand ambassador for Madera Outdoor & Montem, a group hike and event planner for Mountain Chicks, and a representative for Gear Forward!
I come here a few times a month to organize my pictures, thoughts, stories and future plans; be it a weekend trip to a state park or preparing our first section hikes along the AT (2017) and a thruhike of the JMT (2019).
We are slowly converting a 1996 Ford E-150 Clubwagon into a camper and travel van!
