Hello! My name is Jason and I am thru-hiking the Appalachian Trail in 2020. I’m undertaking this journey to challenge myself and have great new experiences, as well as taking time to discover myself some more and become a better person. If you’d like to help me, I ask you to please donate to this page! Mental health and wilderness trail protection are two causes very near and dear to my heart.
Thank you for looking at my page!
