Hi I'm Jupiter! Thanks for taking the time to check out my page, and let me share my passion with you. I am 26 years old and currently live in south Florida. In 2012 I fell in love with hiking, it gave me something to really put my mind to, and I can honestly say it saved my life when I had been going down some negative paths. It has since been an incredible blessing, and has taught me to love life and share that love with all those who wish to follow along.

I have hiked more than 8,000 miles on long distance trails up to this point, and very much so love to share the journey with you. Most notably in 2016 hiking the 4,800 mile Eastern Continental Trail from Quebec Canada, to Key West Florida, setting a speed record of the 1,100 mile Florida National Scenic Trail in the process averaging more than 39 miles a day for 29 days straight, by foot travel only!

This year I'm attempting to walk 5,300 miles, a round trip of the Pacific Crest Trail (also known as a yoyo.) An incredible journey from the Mexican border in California all the way up to Canada, then back down the way I came to Mexico again. Crossing this beautiful country twice. The feat has only been done by 3 people before, and I aim to be the fastest.

I love to do these trips, and push what is possible, and share my story. I would like to go further and share more of these trips. In the past I've made videos on my youtube channel documenting my 2016 hike thoroughly. Posted more than 40 articles to my website with stories, trip reports, and tutorials. As well as maintain an extremely active Instagram account with photos, and honest accounts of what I'm feeling while in the midst of these hikes. I love to do it. Receiving emails, and messages from people telling me how my story has inspired them to go out and live, or brings them joy, or that they've learned something through my process, that makes the effort all worth it.

I have a lot ahead of me, and huge dreams to do things never done before. I will continue to push the limits of what is thought possible. To document these journeys, and share with the world would be an incredible gift. If you wish to donate and show your support it would be greatly appreciated. Thank you so much for checking out my page!
