Appalachian Trail You Win And I QUIT!

By: Jessica Georgia

I wanted to switch things up a little bit for this post. I am not quitting, just wanted to bring my point home in this post about how many people do in fact, quit. And for good reason.

If you have not heard I have been wandering around on the Appalachian trail this summer. It has been quite the experience so far.

Learning to pee in a privy with some questionable “walls”….

Having our tent literally flood during a down pour in the middle of the night…

Dealing with the physical aches and pains of backpacking…

Mentally battling with yourself while trying to sleep in the very creepy dark woods at night that someone is not going to murder you…or that a bear will find you and make you a midnight snack…

Super creepy at night.…

How I Conquered Turning 30 In The Rain On The Appalachian Trail.

By: Jessica Georgia

My 30th birthday started off as a foggy rainy hot mess.

A few days prior I was crawling out of my skin with excitement to hike into the Grayson Highlands area of the appalachian trail with my family by my side.

I heard the stories that it was one of the “best kept secrets” of the United States and Virginia. Pretty big statement and as soon as I heard this area was riddled with wild ponies that was enough for me to believe it was going to be nothing short of sensational.…

Finally, a blog post about what the heck is happening out on this crazy backpacking journey I have set out on.

Honestly, I feel like I could sit here for days just spitting out all the incredible sights we have seen, and stories of fascinating people we have met. I really wish I could take my eyeballs and embed them like an image in this post!!

The closest thing to this would be my Instagram (www.instagram.com/jessicageorgia) and even those images don’t do the views 100% justice.…

Gear List

PART TWO: My Essential Items for Living Out of Backpack

By: Jessica Georgia

Ok, lets get right into part two. (In part one, I discussed my food plan. If you haven’t gotten the chance to read it: Click Here if you’re interested.)

I must say, picking out gear has so far been the most overwhelming part of this planning process. There are so many amazing products and brands to choose from when planning your essential backpacking gear.

Luckily, I’ve been blessed to have Bill’s Army Navy Outdoors sponsor my section hike. Without them helping me pick out the necessary gear, I would still be wandering around in outdoors stores, totally overwhelmed.…

Ramen, Pop Tarts, & Oreos Oh My! Food Planning Tips For Backpacking.

By: Jessica Georgia

Alright! Let’s talk backpacking gear and fat kid food!

I am going approach this a little differently then your average gear review, as I’ll begin with my food plan instead of immediately focusing on the gear itself.

Personally, I feel that the most important tool in my pack will be my food. There is a lot to say, so it will be broken into two posts. (I have a big mouth and a lot of opinions, so please bear with me. I promise to make you chuckle along the way.)

I have to say that I was pretty shocked when I began researching gear and planning for my 3-month backpacking adventure, because the food these hikers were consuming was not at all what I had expected.…

By: Jessica Georgia

 

Ok, so I’m not going to be permanently homeless and living out of a backpack, but for an entire three months this summer, that’s exactly how I’ll be living.

The A.T. is one of the longest continuously marked footpaths in the world, stretching to around 2,180 miles in length.…
