pic3My name is Dairy Queen and I am 23 year old Social Work graduate so overcome with Wanderlust that I am attempting to thru-hike the approximately  2, 181 mile long Appalachian Trail.

Some may think I’m crazy (you’re right!), or that I won’t be able to make it. But this blog is not only my way of sharing my adventures leading up to, and on the AT,  but also to motivate and encourage me to become one of the elite few: An Appalachian Trail Thru-Hiker.

I am hiking to find myself. To be a better person. To find my purpose in life. To fully live in nature. To explore my spirituality. To challenge my body and mind in a way that I don’t even understand yet. I am hiking because I am proud to be a woman. I am hiking to accomplish something I can be proud of. I am hiking for me.
