Why Am I Doing This?

I’m doing this because I can’t sit still and I like scaring the living daylights out of myself. I’m learning to understand that the discomfort of being afraid keeps me alive inside.

The Onion has been one of my openly fake news sources that has kept me smiling over the last few years. This satirical article does a good job of summing up some of the conversations I’ve been having with friends and loved ones!

In addition, I want to make this bigger than just me and my love for the outdoors. I am trying to help 3 amazing organizations that I believe in. These non-profits are working for the greater good on shoestring budgets. After you click the donate button, you will be able to apply your donation to one or all of the options!

Sullivan’s Logistics

While I prefer you donate to one of the non-profits I’ve listed, I won’t say no to some support to cover some costs of resupply logistics or vitamin supplements for these old bones, but more so website development and transaction fees. Thank you!

When you click any donation button, you will be able to designate what percent of your donation should go to which cause. You will have the option to pledge per mile, but remember, I am hoping to hike 2,700 miles. You don’t want to end up like Michael Scott from The Office.

Thank you!
