My love for the outdoors is unparalleled and will always remain a part of my life as long as I am able to walk on this earth. But after many years of hiking trails and climbing mountains, my lower extremities are beginning to talk behind my back. And what they're saying is not all that flattering. So, rather than take that mental abuse, I've decided to hang up the boots and call it a wrap after an 18 year run.
Yes, I will be sad not having those daily wilderness jaunts. But more so, I will miss the wonderful people who have made my life and my job so special.
I feel extremely privileged to have met so many gracious and fun loving people from around the world, many of whom have become good friends and I sincerely thank everyone for their loyalty and friendship throughout the years. I only hope I have been able to pass along a few memorable experiences that have made a difference in people's lives.
Thank you all for being a part of HIKE THIS and for making a dream come true. You will be sorely missed.
