Adam Smith

Hey everyone, my name is Adam. I'm a student at Bowling Green State University studying creative writing and sociology. Aside from school, I'm an avid seeker of adventure and experience. My list of hobbies (more like obsessions), include competitive bass fishing, kayaking, white-water rafting, road-tripping, hiking, texas-holdem, and when I'm stuck in school...reading. Over the past three years, I've spent most of my time road-tripping around the United States—focused on visiting National Parks/Forests. Favorite National Park & Sea-Shore: Glacier Lake National Park and Padre Island National Sea-Shore. Favorite Book(s): Odyssey by Homer, Ecotopia by Callenbach, and Into The Wild by Krakauer. I'm planning on starting my 2018 thru-hike on March 15th.
