Cats Love The Hiker Yearbook!

My 2015 Appalachian Trail thru-hike was a constant roller coaster of ups and downs and I don’t regret a bit of it. I have, however, noticed that every time someone asks what I would do differently if I could do it all over again I always have the same answer. I would take more pictures of the people I met, people that would more often than not become my friends. I have countless photos of mountains and sunsets, and while I cherish them dearly, I wish I had more photos of the people that I shared those moments with. In fact, there were quite a few hikers I met early on in my hike that I enjoyed spending time with but for whatever reason never saw again. After I came home, I tried to remember their names or what they looked like and I wondered if they ever made it to where they were going. The Hiker Yearbook has been absolutely amazing in helping me remember faces and names. It goes a step further and (with permission) has contact info to reconnect with other hikers. Very awesome! I’ll be honest here and say that I didn’t not cry when I got my copy in the mail. Trust me when I say it’s worth every penny.

Don’t ask why I’m looking at the ceiling at the ALDHA Gathering. I have no idea.
