I really wanted to work somewhere where I could help people connect to the outdoors and learn to love it as much as I do.

Grandma Gatewood,

She is the first solo female hiker of the 21,68 mile Appalachian trail in 1955 at age 67, she had a shower curtain to keep the rain off, and a homemade denim bag slung over her shoulder to carry food and clothing.

I would love to hear all the experiences she had on the trail, and what led her to tell her children she was โ€œgoing on a walkโ€.

Anything from the 10 essentials list! But if I had to choose 1; definitely water (or a way to filter water).

Anytime Iโ€™m in a black beat heavy area, I make sure I am making noise, especially when in thick brush or going around corners. Bears hate being surprised. When camping, I make sure all scented items are stored properly. WHen I do see a bear, I make a lot of noise.

Iโ€™m usually climbing (indoors, for now) at the climbing gym, hiking with my husky Mara, or biking on the A.T.T. or mountain biking.
