Hi!!!!!!!!! Thanks for checking out my blog…….ummm so I guess I’ll just jump right in.
So i set this blog up to document my journey through hiking the PCT, AT, and CDT as well as backpacking Europe.
Well thats not the plan anymore.
I went out on the PCT twice, once with my mom then we came back to fix a few things and once by myself. I loved hiking, loved being in the wilderness; but i didn’t love being out there alone. I still want to hike all these hikes and i still want to backpack Europe, I just want someone to do it with. Turns out i didnt enjoy being alone 20-22 hours a day.
Therefore this blog is going from almost all about hiking to a blog all about my life.
There will be hiking and running
and biking (as soon as i get a seat that doesn’t kill my butt and put air in my tires) and swimming and a plethora of other physical activities as well as my pursuit to find my partner in the world (did that!!!!! Now I’m engaged and counting the days to my wedding),
my struggle of how to start saving money to buy a farm and raise a family (currently i am engaged with no kids, living in our first fixer upper house) as well as still figure how to travel and have fun and my journey to becoming a Nurse and maybe more.
I look forward to you joining me on this adventure we call life!!!!

Awesome start – to an awesome on-going project. You can only use this to look back once you’ve accomplished many accomplishments because you’re that type of person. Proud to call you a friend!

Good Luck Ariana. I am reading WILD (you should too before doing this adventure) and so it prompted me to remember you left our hiking club to move to Nevada and do this undertaking. I had no idea you had a 4 year plan! Good luck! Have fun!
