This is my blog about my adventures in long-distance backpacking, ultra-marathon running, sarcasm, and maybe some economics. This other site is my academic economics site.
I remember in 2001 when I was in San Diego, fairly lonely, I dreamt of hiking the AT. I started reading a how-to on backpacking (which was my bathroom book) and I knew it was going to be a lifelong relationship. Now that I think about it my roommate must have thought I had constipation problems. It must have felt nostalgic getting back to that point and reminiscing on all that's happened since then for you. Excited to see what more the world has to offer.
