Walking to NY: How to help

Starting in August, I’m going to be hiking the Appalachian Trail for a few months, to end up in upstate New York. The goal being to pursue my creative writing and other artistic ambitions full time for a while. I will also leave behind my main source of employment, as well as the farm I have come to depend on. After planning, training, and saving for almost a year, there is still a lot I need, and will need especially during the walking months.

I just want to let everyone know, I am open to accepting all forms of help in this endeavor. I have already had a few people who live near the trail offer a place to stay and a warm meal along the way, and some truly amazing friends will be caring for my animals and farm while I’m gone. A trip like this would be a lot harder, maybe even impossible, if I was on my own. Any help that you can offer is more than appreciated. It will be recorded, remembered, and eventually, repaid.

If you know someone who lives near the trail, or hear about a short term employment opportunity between here and there, or even just a heads up about an interesting place to visit, please let me know. Anything from a few dollars, to backpacking tips, to information about the areas I’ll be passing through, means the world. It helps make this adventure possible. Any and all contributions are going to support me during my hike. Once I arrive, I will be able to arrange for employment and my needs will be much more predictable.

Just let me know if you have any questions about specifics, food and gear and the whatnot’s I’m still sourcing. I have a paypal.me set up, for anyone who wants to help monetarily, as well as a Patreon account, which is a new service that supports start-up artists, connecting them and their art directly with patrons who want to support them. Both links are listed below!
