Hi, I'm Joey - Moon Pie on the trail. I set out to thru-hike the Appalachian Trail in 2018, sharing my journey with all its ups and downs. It was the hardest and most epic thing I've ever done! I've got 1800 miles under my boots so far, with plans to finish in 2019.
There are so many amazing people to meet and places to see! I found support and encouragement from people on trail and off (like right here on YouTube). Thank you to everyone who has shared a kind word, a piece of fruit or any kind of trail magic. You're awesome!
Please join me for my favorite hikes, great backpacking gear picks, thru-hiking insights and other cool stuff.
P.S. I named my channel "Joyful Rambler" because that's the state of mind I have when hiking and I hope you do, too. Happy hiking!
