Welcome to our site about our family Appalachian Trail thru-hike. Ellie, Derrick, and Bekah are starting our 2,185 mile flip-flop hike in March 2017 starting and ending in their home state, Virginia. We have dreamed of this trip for years, and never imagined taking a 12 month old baby with us! She will make AT history and will be the youngest person on record to complete the trail with mom and dad.
We’ll post pre-trip preparations and updated stories and pictures once we hit the trail, but no promises how frequent those may be as electronic usage will be minimal! We hope you enjoy following our story.
