Whats with the Appalachian Trail references?

If you’ve read every word I’ve written, not that much yet, you’ve seen vague reference to the Appalachian Trail. Why? My personal obsession is backpacking. Specifically backpacking along the Appalachian Trail. I have been hiking the AT since I was about 9 in boy scouts. I’ve kept it up no matter where I was in my career and now that I’m retired, I’ve really gone crazy. I have hiked over 900 miles in 2020 and in February of 2021 I plan to begin a thru-hike of the entire length of the AT. 2,200 miles from Springer Mountain in Georgia to Mt Katahdin in Maine.

In addition to hearing about how I manage my retirement income you will get bored to death with periodic updates on my hiking endeavors. Join along. Maybe it will inspire you to save more to achieve financial independence faster so you can have the freedom to indulge your obsession.

Thanks for reading
