In 2018, I had the privilege of walking the entire length of the Appalchian Trail during its entirety over the course of a thru hike. During my hike, I had to reflect deep inside myself and come to terms with my own depression and anxiety I have battled for years. During my thru hike, I formed a great bond with another hiker, The German Passenger. Months following the completeltion of our hike. The Passenger tragically took his own life. In 2019, I aim to walk the entirety of the PCT. To raise awareness for the poor souls who have battles these struggles on a daily basis.
