This adventure started when an old high school friend messaged me and asked if I wanted to go on a 7 day adventure hike that she was planning. For her to think of me after all these years, reminded me how grateful I am for the people in my life. On the FlyAway, I kept thinking about the adventure ahead. Once I landed in Texas, we drove to Tennessee and stayed at a cabin right on the river. It was right in the middle of Tennessee and North Carolina, so the Appalachian trail was within an arm’s reach. Let the adventure begin!
