The Idea…

The concept of this blog has been growing in my mind for some time now. I started getting into hiking in 2020. The pandemic had been raging on for months. As many people did during the pandemic, I was starting to become stir-crazy. I started feeling like I was constantly looking at screens to fill time every day, day after day. It was taking its toll on my mental health. (more on this later) I needed to disconnect, so I set out to find a safe activity away from crowds and technology. I was outside so much that year and quickly found hiking, and the rest feels like history. Thankful, I live in the beautiful state of Tennessee, home to 56 state parks and 13 national parks; there are more than one thousand miles of trails in Tennessee, so I’ve been pretty busy since then. After each hike, I started falling in love with this sport more and more.

Where I started…

I started as a total novice; I needed to figure out where to begin, so I made some mistakes. I’ve learned something on every hike I’ve been on, and that’s how my idea for Hiker 2 Hiker came to be. I wanted to create a resource to write down everything I wished to tell my previous self. I want this blog to be a resource for other hikers to learn the simple things others leave out or need to explain fully. You could only learn simple things from someone already on the trail. Here at Hiker 2 Hiker, I’m passionate about helping you explore the great outdoors with confidence and peace of mind. That’s why I’m committed to providing you with the essential hiking safety tips to stay safe and enjoy your hike to the fullest. Whether you’re a seasoned hiker or just starting, I aim to empower you with the knowledge and skills to navigate the trail safely and confidently. So join me as I share experience and expertise, and discover the beauty and wonder of the natural world around us.
