Hello! My name is Sarah, trail name “Froggy” and I will be attempting a Flip Flop thru hike of the Appalachian Trail in April 2018. I have wanted to hike the AT for a few years now, and fate intervened and gave me the opportunity of a lifetime. I have lots of experience as a day hiker but have recently fallen in love with backpacking and camping. I currently live in Virginia with my wonderful husband and two elderly Chihuahuas, but I can’t wait to live in the woods next year. I will also be turning 40 in 2018, so it could be a ploy to hide in the woods for months to avoid the black balloons and Grim Reaper birthday cake. I’d love to have you follow along on my epic adventure!
