1 on 1 Mentorship Program

I’ve spent two decades of my life dedicated to the pursuit of exploring the world on foot. Thru-hiking has been an invaluable, immersive experience for me in this pursuit.

When I set out from Springer Mountain in May of 2003, I had no idea what I was doing.

I learned nearly everything through trial and error and asking others. It was a difficult and time consuming process. Which is why I am offering a limited number of 1 on 1 Mentorships.

My hope is that by working with prospective hikers, I can answer questions and guide them through the planning phase so that they hit the trail ready for their journey.

Applications for 2023 are closed. Please check back in November 2023 for the application link for 2024!
