I’ve always had a passion for hiking and backpacking and have done about 500 miles in sections on the AT.
Time to start walking and see where this journey leads me.
Cheryl and I will be blogging together; me from the trail, she from home in Connecticut…Oh, and my trail name comes from my frequent reminders to myself & others to just put one foot in front of the other – & see where the journey takes you.
Cheryl's trail (angel) name is Should Be Good..her response to nearly every adventure I suggest. I plan to hike the PCT in 2018 to do it all again for different scenery. Engineer by trade but my chronic hiking addition has put that off for a while.
Hey, my name is Cieria (pronounced Sierra), but everyone calls me Rera (Rare-ah) because my baby sister couldn't say my name correctly.
I saw the Katahdin, Maine mileage sign and knew that I had to complete a thru-hike one of these days.
To top it off, once we got to the spring, I drank the cool, clean mountain water and must have been bitten by the hiking bug.
2018 is my year for an AT thru-hike and I cannot wait!
I am a nature lover, biologist, yogini, former science teacher and fashionista that will somehow make all this work out in the wild for 6 months! I would like to show my friends and former students to never give up on their dreams and be able show everyone a part of America that is somewhat tucked away.
My personal website is: youd like to follow all our adventures. I currently live in Cyprus where I represent the United States as a Foreign Service Officer (diplomat) at our embassy in the capital city.
I plan to thru-hike the Appalachian Trail in 2018 as a way to escape the hamster wheel and spend some good quality time in the US of A after being abroad for several years. Kilimanjaro in Tanzania, hiking the West Highland Way in Scotland, and speed-trekking up Poon Hill in Annapurna, Nepal.
When not planning a hike, I'm training for ultramarathons or traveling to new places.
