Hey there! Thanks for taking the time to check out my page and allowing you to share my aspirations with you. Hiking has been a passion of mine since I was a little girl. After putting off my dream of thru-hiking the AT for years, I decided it was time to live it. I documented my 2015 thru-hike in videos and blog posts hoping it would help encourage others to get out and live their dreams, as well. I enjoy not only creating long-distance videos, but also highlighting local trails, gear reviews and tutorials, etc. Anything to show people: "If I can do it, so you can you!" After all, I had never been on an overnight backpacking trip until my first night on the Appalachian Trail!

Although my AT journey came to an end after 2,189.2 miles, my dreaming didn't dwindle on Mt. Katahdin. In fact, accomplishing one of my bucket list items created an insatiable desire for more. I decided I would love to share the full Triple Crown journey which consists of hiking the Appalachian Trail, Pacific Crest Trail, and the Continental Divide Trail. 

Thanks to the support of my faithful patrons and subscribers, I was able to conquer the second leg of my Triple Crown journey on the PCT last year in 2017, and will be attempting the CDT this spring. All patrons will be part of exclusive live Q&A's prior to my third leg of this adventure!

I know how overwhelming it can be to plan a backpacking trip on the Appalachian Trail. I have received many questions from aspiring section and thru-hikers since the completion of my hike. In hopes of answering all of their questions, I am currently in the process of writing an e-book. As a small token of my gratitude, I would like to provide any patron with a copy of Take A Hike: Dixie's How-To Guide for Hiking the Appalachian Trail (upon its completion).

Goals
100% complete

The Continental Divide Trail is a continuous hiking path that stretches over 3,100 miles from Mexico to Canada through New Mexico, Colorado, Wyoming, Idaho, and Montana. It is the the third leg of me completing the Triple Crown. I would like to upgrade equipment so I can make this the best documented footage I have provided yet. In addition to equipment, the funds will go towards gear, resupply/food, travel and bills.

With your help I hope to complete the Triple Crown of Hiking by the end of 2018!
