Where I’ve Been: My best hike best hike (to date) was a short section hike along the Appalachian Trail because I was inspired by the thousands of hikers who came before me.

Where To Next? In t
I write a monthly outdoor destinations article for the new magazine Venture South and intend to visit many outdoor destinations in Mississippi in support of this endeavor. I also am the founder of "Hikes Across America!" which is an initiative through which I hope to encourage as many people as possible to get outside and enjoy whatever outdoor recreational activities they prefer. I also plan to recruit a small team of individuals to thru-hike Mississippi's Black Creek Hiking Trail which is a 42-mile hiking trail.
