This is my cousin. He hiked the Appalachian Trail back in 2007. I’ve been strongly considering for a few months now taking time off from my life to hike part of the trail. I’m in no way, shape, or form, fit enough to hike the entire trail, but I would love to be able to do a section of it. I’ve also been wanting so badly to climb each of the 46 peaks in NY.
I’m insanely jealous of my cousin. He’s been to Antarctica, New Zealand, he’s hiked a million different trails and mountains and his life is constantly outdoors. I would LOVE to be doing what he does. The sad part is that I never talk to him, and I’m afraid he’ll think I’m stupid for wanting to do what he does. That’s his life and I’m just an outsider thinking it’s cool.
In the meantime I’ll continue hiking local trails with Ellie. Not nearly as fun.
