MT Whitney for Kristy’s birthday

MT Whitney for Kristy’s birthday


Hey guys, Kristy here.  Kilo & I met over 6 years ago.  I asked him to join my friends & I for our typical Saturday long run and we have been together ever since.  Together we have trekked to Everest Base Camp, completed the W Trek in Patagonia and explored the South Island of New Zealand. Now we are about to take on our most epic adventure to date in a North Bound (NoBo) thru-hike of the Pacific Crest Trail.  

Kilo grew up in the San Fernando Valley of Los Angeles.  At the age of 23, he joined the United States Marines and served as a member of the USA military for 5 years.  As part of Marines, Kilo had the opportunity to travel the world and explore places like Seychelles, Bahrain, and Thailand.

I grew up in Maryland just outside of Washington DC.  After attending college at James Madison University, I backpacked through Europe before moving to New York City.  After two years in the Big Apple and witnessing the tragic events of 9/11, I joined a group of college friends in moving out to San Diego, CA and have lived in a variety of SoCal cities ever since slowly working my way up the coast.

This blog is a way to share our PCT hike and all of the adventures that follow in hopes of inspiring others to get outside more, to say YES to adventure and to take on big, scary things every now and then…after all we only have this one short life.
