Kimberly Ronin Huber

Hi, My name is Kimberly, but I go by Ronin on the trail. I am a 54 yr old female with gypsy heart and incurable case of wanderlust. I am a 2015 PCT Thru-hiker, and 2018 AT section hiker, but currently reside in an A Frame at the base of the White Mountains of NH. Hiking and traveling abroad has taught me to live by two mottos, "Hike your own hike" and "Eadem Mutata Resurgo", or "Although changed, I shall arise the same". I believe humor is an important part of life, and as a Boston native, my second languages are wit and sarcasm. Please enjoy, but as with life, take everything with a light heart. Cheers
