Hello from Maryland!

I have loved spending time outdoors since I was a little girl growing up in rural NH.  I love backpacking, cycling, kayaking, xc and downhill skiing, and travelling.  A few years ago, at age 53, I thru-hiked the Appalachian Trail as a solo NOBO.  Best 5ish months of my life.  Since then I have done a few other shorter thru-hikes and plan to do a lot more.  I love doing DIY projects around the house and learning new skills.  I also enjoy doing various arts and crafts projects.  

I live in Maryland with my husband of 30+ years.  We have two grown sons who probably think I am crazy for all the adventures I go on and projects I do, but I hope they will always remember me for living life to the fullest and following my dreams.

Hi Brookes,


Where in NH did you grow up?

I'm born and raised NH, in Concord & Bow.

Grew up in Lyme.  🙂
